Yeehaw, pardner! Mount up, men! We’ll head ’em off at the pass! Come on out with your six-guns a-shootin’ and a-blazin’! Unhand that rancher’s daughter! Tear up that mortgage! Cattle… lariats? … Anyone for tennis? Anyway, Wild West cliche sayings aside, Knuck...

Most of the time, when you’re playing through an adventure, you just see it from the one side. You’re the heroes cleaning out the cave full of kobolds. A couple RPGs let you play as the Kobolds looking to defend their home from the heroes. No Country for Great Old Ones lets you do both [&...

Longtime readers know I love it when a company posts a rulebook for their games online. You can check out the rules and see if the game’s for you. Also, having electronic versions of the book can really come in handy. In this case, the game is Wanted: Rich or Dead, an old-western shootout game ...

We all know my love of “try before you buy.” Being an informed consumer is very important in this day and age. I also think it shows a company feels they’ve got a quality product. “Look, we’ll let you try it for free and we know you’ll come back for more.” Th...

The wild west is getting even wilder. Doomtown: Reloaded is getting itself a new expansion. It’s called There Comes a Reckoning and it’ll be adding 96 new cards to your collections (well, four copies of each of the 24 cards, that is). No matter what faction you’re backing, thereR...

The first time I was typing out that headline, I started typing, “Knew.” Caught myself just at the last minute. Anyway, there’s some new releases over on the Knuckleduster Miniatures website. They’ve got new characters, a new six-pack, and even some terrain for your games....

Sure, my friend Henrix can speak and read Swedish, but despite what he’s tried to teach me, I haven’t quite gotten it down yet. In the meantime, I still need English versions of games. And that’s why I’m thankful that Åskfågeln (however that’s pronounced) is bringing Wes...

Mount up, men! We’ll head ’em off at the pass! Sure, it’s cliche, but it makes more sense than, “Anybody got any dimes!?” in context. But whatever line you want to use, it puts me in the mood for some old-fashioned wild west shootout action. And Knuckleduster Miniatures ...

Occasionally, game rules can use a bit of an update. You find a problem in balance or something’s not working the way you intended, so you go in and fix things. Or, you’ve realized that some bits of the game are missing and you want to add to it. Whatever the reason, having the rules [&he...

You know, when a new edition of a game comes out, if you played the previous version, there’s the potential to feel a little cheated. You already bought a rulebook once. Why should you do it again? Well, the folks behind Wild West Exodus don’t want you to feel that way. They’re offe...

Mount up, men! We’ll head them off at the pass! The Old West is a rather iconic time. Gunslingers on the streets of cities like Durango and Dodge. Banditos down in Texas. Saloons. Cowboy hats. Now, a new miniatures game looks to bring the spirit of that time to your tabletops. It’s called...

Ok, so I didn’t go to Adepticon, and that’s sad. However, it’s Monday morning and I’ve got no “convention hangover” and no long-ass drive/flight home and no Con Crud to worry about. So, it has its upsides as well. It would seem that much of my Friend’s list i...

The weekend is pretty much upon us. We just need to finish up this afternoon and we’ll be there. Do you have plans? I’m still unsure. Though I think I want to make a cheesecake, because it’s been a while since I’ve made cheesecake. Probably make more strawberry-lime sauce to g...

The weekend is over. It’s back to the office. But, hopefully, you got some gaming in over the past couple days. Me? I played some Guild Ball (Masons beat the Morticians) and then some Dogs of War (my favorite game that CMON makes). I also got to watch a game of On Her Majesty’s Service. [...

The American West has all sorts of legends and lore associated with it. It’s a time and place set apart from others, and it’s a setting that’s ripe for use in gaming. It’s also very easy to meld into your own thing. Well, Greenbrier Games has done that, giving us a steampunk-w...

So you’re out in the Wild West and you’ve got all sorts of werewolves, werecats, and even some werebears running around. What’re you going to do about it? Build yourself a Werecatcher, of course! At least, that’s what the people in Blackwater Gulch did, and now you can add it ...

We’ve got a spaghetti western here on 36. I like spaghetti westerns. I like the way the boots are all reverbed out walking across the hardwood floor. In fact, everything’s got that big reverb sound. There’s also a new gang available to order for Dead Man’s Hand....

I love old Western movies. The “Man With No Name” trilogy is one of my favorite sets of movies. I really do need to get around to watching The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly again at some point, in particular. Afterward, I might just want to play some western-style miniatures games. Thankful...
