About

Gunfights & Gamblin' captures the spirit of the American "old west" in larger-than-life fashion. It pits 2 to 4 players in an epic team battle over a pioneer town.    

The question is: are you feeling like a pioneer, or a renegade? Do you want to build the town, or burn it down? 

Players are immediately pulled into the experience from the moment they pick one of the 4 unique characters to play. It is a game drenched in theme--from keeping track of the game rounds by loading bullets into a revolver chamber, to the tongue-in-cheek descriptions on the cards.    

Strategy and luck take equal roles as you out-shoot, out-gamble and outsmart the other team to victory!   

 

Bryan Pope, CEO of Arcane Wonders had this to say about Gunfights & Gamblin': It is original, clever, and fun to play. The theme is fun, and overall it’s a good experience. It has a lot of flavor and feels like the West. When you finish playing you want to try again!

The Tabletop Warriors podcast https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/table-top-warriors/id1310608476?mt=2 will be discussing this Kickstarter on 11/22! Give it a listen!

To turn Gunfights & Gamblin' into a reality, I need to cover manufacturing costs. I have compiled quotes from manufacturers around the world and feel confident in the dollar range I am seeking.

Risks and challenges

Like any game project revolving around the manufacturing process, it is always possible that unforeseen challenges could arise. I have manufactured many game prototypes myself to play with friends and family, but this will be my first time working directly with a mass manufacturer. However, I have been to major gaming conventions, had prototypes reviewed and appraised by publishers and attended Q&A sessions with industry leaders. I feel confident that I can handle any challenges thrown my way in the manufacturing process.
