Argentum’s “El Gaucho” Contest!
Attention, cattle barons! Argentum is having an El Gaucho contest and you are invited. Just answer several trivia questions for a chance of winning one of twelve copies of El Gaucho!

Enter the contest at: https://boardgamegeek.com/contest/elgaucho

el_gauchoIn El Gaucho, two to four players compete for the best cattle and the biggest herds to sell. Dice are rolled, gauchos are placed, cattle are snatched away under the noses of your competitors. Get the most value out of your cattle but be aware, lest your opponents snatch up a cattle tile you’ve been eyeing! Choosing the dice and using the Special Actions give you an edge in becoming the most successful cattle baron the Pampa has seen.

The twelve winners of Argentum’s contest will each receive a copy of the El Gaucho.

Good luck and keep on playing!
