What do people think of the realism of this rule set?15/09/2017 at 14:40 #71639Mike HeaddenParticipant
For what value of “realism?” 🙂
They give a good, fun game which feels like the Wild West to me. Though, given my knowledge of the Old West comes more from Hollywood than more serious research that may not be a recommendation.
My previous “go to” rule set was Once Upon A Time In The West which was more detailed and more complicated and more comprehensive but I’m not sure it was any more realistic.

I found them fun but I suspect realistic Old West violence was dominated by ambush and simply outright murder than six guns blazing at one another. From what I’ve read it was far more likely Party A would simply walk up to Party B and shoot them without warning or club them over the head from behind.
I suspect a realistic rules set for the Old West would be very Hobbsian and very boring for the most part.
