Welcome, savvy investor, to the 1849 gold rush in the territory soon to be known as California!
Masses of gold await your discovery in the mountains, hills, rivers, lakes and forests of hte region. The race is on to be the first to delve into these beautiful (and sometimes treacherous!) locations in a fast-paced adventure to strike it rich!
Yet there are others who are just as eager to lay claim to an easy fortune.
Early in the game gold is easy to find just about anywhere! But as the natural resources are exploited, it will take more and more cunning to find the scraps that early prospectors have left behind.
But beware! Some of the gold you've found may turn out to be fool's gold, which is worthless.
The investor who most successfully balances finances, location and timing might just make a fortune!
