Welcome to the Backcountry!

Trailside Games is proud to present Backcountry: The Game of Wilderness Survival.  Currently we are shipping the Appalachian Trail Edition and The Great Smoky Mountains Edition. 


If you are new to backpacking or a seasoned hiker, we are sure you will find yourself at home in this hilarious game about the wilderness. Backcountry: The Game of Wilderness Survival is built for the trail.  In fact, that’s where it all began. It is a challenging game of skill, strategy and a lot of trail humor.  You will find yourself facing bears, fording rivers, and climbing through snow.


All the while you must keep track of your food units, battle injuries and hold onto your gear.  The rewards are great! Scenic points await you at every turn and the fastest hiker enjoys some bonus time at the local gear store.  As you head into the Backcountry, be prepared to barter gear, exchange food for equipment and prepare for the countless dangers on the trail.  It is not for the faint of heart!  


Perhaps the best part of Backcountry is the true backcountry game experience.  The game is designed on a waterproof, tear resistant map which folds neatly with all game components into a zipper bag.  It is trail-ready.  A shelter on the AT or a large rock next to a river are ideal settings to experience Backcountry with your hiking friends.  This is not just a game, it is a hike down memory lane of your best and fondest memories (or perhaps your darkest days!) on the trail.


The Backcountry Awaits!
