Well, Gangfight Games has bad news and good news about their recent Kickstarter campaign for the Savage Beasts expansion for Blackwater Gulch. The bad news is that the campaign didn’t fund (which is sad, as I really was hoping they’d make it to the bear stretch goal). However, the good ne...

For Americans, the Old West takes on mythical status. Gunslingers, cowboys, rustlers, marshals, bandits. All of them are larger than life. Famous lawmen and outlaws are still names that people know.
