One False Step for Mankind is a board game designed by James Ernest and published by Cheapass Games in 2003. Players play the role of town mayors, seeking to become governor of California in 1849 (during the California Gold Rush). Through gold mining, claim-jumping, trading, farming, building cities, and constructing rockets to fly to the moon, players vie for money and influence in order to become governor.
The first player to reach 30 points of influence is deemed to have become governor and wins the game.
