About this project
In the new expansion Gambler someone has cheated! The table has been flipped and catawampous fisticuffs are immanent! Grab a beer bottle, chair or whatever you can use to cash in that sidewinder. Cheat'n ain't never won nothin' so obviously the cheater is the Gambler on the ground!
The original Gunslinger is a fast paced spaghetti western card game where one minute you are standing tall and the next you are taking a dirt nap. This game can be learned and played in less than eight minutes. Once you play a few rounds you will be a Pro, or Addicted, or Both! I'd bet my britches on it.

Description of our game:
Both Gunslinger and Gambler are stand alone card games. Players can choose to mix the games or combine multiple copies of the same game for additional players. Each game is designed to be played with up to five players. Depending on the number of players and their experience level, games are completed less than ten minutes. Each game is a unique western themed gunfight or saloon brawl complete with epic rivalries, explosions, big bets, and friendships lost.
How do we know you will like it?
BC Games focuses on making quality games. For Gambler we have refined and tested both Gambler and Gunslinger by playing 100’s of times with complete strangers, family, friends, and even professed non gamers. The designers also did hours of research on the heroes and villains of the old west in an effort to add a large shot of realism to the theme of the game. You will enjoy this game for its speed, attention to detail regarding the theme and hours of repeat playability. Gunslingers and Gamblers alike put all they had on the line every day in the Wild West. Now you can live out your dream of an amazing duel/brawl of your own.
We estimate that inside the US, backers will receive their products roughly 90 days after the close of the kickstarter. We have also chosen a slightly longer Kickstarter timeline so we can go to a few more shows and events during the project and earn some more backers trust.
BC Games will support this game with a variety of methods:
-We do extensive testing of our titles with people that have no vested interest in the games success.
-The BC Games web page will offer additional support for Gunslinger and Gambler specifically through a FAQ, additional accessories, and expansions for the Gunslinger title. We plan to offer different styles of life counters, cases, bags, additional playing cards in the future.
You can find this resource at: www.bcgamescompany.com
-We have a youtube channel where we are filming "How to..." videos of all of our games. The videos will be availible there and on our website to view.
-Finally, we also run tournaments and community events whenever possible. So if you have a question and you can make it to an event you can ask us live and in person. We will gladly clear up any concerns you may have.
Risks and challenges
For most card games on Kickstarter, the biggest risks for backers and creators boils down to only a few items:
1. Finding a reliable manufacturer that can deliver the promised games
2. Making sure your Kickstarter goal is high enough to cover manufacturing and shipping costs.
Both of these risks are major concerns whenever you create a physical product that you will send out to backers like you. Fortunately, we have solved both of these issues when we self-funded the first print run of Gunslinger.
When we first made Gunslinger we brought it to print by self-funding the project. We wanted to create a game and put it in your hands as soon as possible. I am happy to say that we were able to accomplish that. We have learned many valuable lessons in the last 3 years working with different companies, events, and people. Ultimately, we have been able to find the most reliable manufacturing and delivery options with reasonable prices. We are sure we can deliver based on what we ask for our products.
With the second print run, we are using a proven manufacturer and have already been in contact with them regarding the cost and manufacturing period. In addition, we have identified several other alternatives should any major problems arrive with our primary manufacturing choice. This does not mean there is no risk involved, but it is far less of a risk than if we were without this information.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
