Every person has dreamed of being the cowboy standing in the middle of the street, alone, staring down your enemy, fingers twitching by the side of your gunbelt, looking for the flinch in your adversaries face that will unleash blazing steel from your side...now is your chance...but watch your back!
Cowboys is a game of Old West gun fights, some fact, some fiction. Bank robberies, lynch mobs, cattle rustling, jail breaks and many other western actions are depicted. It pits opposing sides against each other, bringing to life the daring and dastardly deeds of heroes and villains when the way of the gun ruled the day. Included are the lawmen, gunfighters, gamblers and ne'er do wells who knew how to handle themselves during a gunfight.
Gunfights in Cowboys are affected by the skills of the cowboys and the players. It also uses cards to show luck (good and bad), daring and bravery (or lack of it). A well-played hand can leave you walking from the table with a smile and your opponent in a bad fix. The epic gunfights of Wyatt Earp, "Wild Bill Hickock, Jesse James, Doc Holliday, Billy the Kid, The Daltons and many others are included. Some of the variables are town folk, horses, weapons, card play, etc.
