Bibelot Games is back again, and this time we're bringing you a hilarious western themed game, featuring the best components you've ever seen in a card and dice game! You won't believe the beautiful case, metal game pieces, wood dice, and thick, full sized cards! In this casual game you get to lead a posse of bandits on the most daring heists as you fight to be the baddest outlaw in town!
The Outlaws is simple and fast paced, so it's easy to learn and get right into the action.
You build a town from the cards, grab some loot and start Hiring Characters, Doing Jobs, and Reporting Tips!
You need Characters to do Jobs. Jobs give you the Loot to hire more Characters, and the Rep you need to win the game. Of course, if a job goes bad, your Characters are going to get shot at, and might even die.
Reporting a Tip is a great way to earn a quick buck, or make someone else's turn more difficult!
Download the complete and final Rule Book here!
Even better, The Outlaws can be played as a single player game where you get to duke it out against your arch-nemesis: The Sheriff! This game play mode is included in the Rules, and was built to be challenging (you'll win about as often as you do Solitaire). The game play stays the same, but each turn the Sheriff might earn some Rep, or take away your Jobs or Characters!
You can also play with more than 4 players (or just make longer games!). All you'll need to do is shuffle in an extra deck. Each additional deck adds about 30 minutes to the game play and can support up to 4 more players.
The newly unlocked Fully Loaded Expansion Set ($33) comes in a box matching the Real Deal, and contains 80 more tokens, 1 rule book, plus an extra 54 cards, and four dice. It is a collection of 3 new cards types (Legends, General Store, and Newspaper), and 4 new dice that you can add to the game. Best thing ‘bout all these new goodies is that you can pick ‘n choose what to do. Meet the legends, go shopping, read the paper, change the odds, or any combination you want!
How to Use the Expansion Set
- Choose which expansions set(s) you want to use
- Shuffle those set(s) into the main deck, and
- Deal the town as normal
- If you want to use the expansion dice, just add them to the pile of standard dice!
All rewards come with our eternal thanks, and include your name listed on our Official The Outlaws: You ROCK!" page.

BE A CHARACTER - $ _priceless_!
The reward tiers that include this option will get you into the game, literally! We'll transform _YOU_ (or the person of your choosing) into a Wild West Outlaw. Once the project closes we'll send you a backer survey asking for:
- A photo of yourself
- Your Outlaw Name and AKA
- And a word or two that describe you.
From there, we'll turn you into a hilariously awesome bandit, and your card will be included in EVERY copy of The Outlaws! Yay!
In 2013, we also introduced the world to Hardwood Playing Cards. We've run 4 successful Kickstarter campaigns, all with on-time shipping, and over 95% backer satisfaction.
One aspect that sets us apart from other game companies is our unique manufacturing. Almost all of our games, cards, and accessories are made, in-house, in the USA, using the power of LASERs. Our dedication to quality products made from superior materials means that your games are _always_ built to the highest standards and are designed to last a lifetime.
Risks and challenges
Running a project is no easy task, and there are always some risks to make the adventure all the more "exciting". Thankfully, this ain't our first rodeo so we have a good idea of what we're getting into.
THE GAME: The Outlaws is a completed game - it has been through over 1,000 hours of play testing with more than 200 groups. We hope to bring some awesome new things to the game, like better artwork and the Expansion Pack, but the game itself will not see any changes.
PRODUCTION: We're confident that we can do all of the in-house production in time to ship. But we'll be working with some new suppliers this time, like our awesome print-house, which does mean we might run into some unexpected delays. In the past, we've always managed to make up for delays, and we hope that this will be the case again!
FULFILLMENT: We'll be doing all of our own fulfillment (which is why we aren't "EU friendly" - sorry guys!). We've been through this process 4 times without major issues and don't expect any this time around either! *smiles* And, because we aren't using local or international Distribution / Fulfillment Centers, we don't have to charge more for the game, or pad our goal! Wahoo! *smiles*
But no matter how prepared we are, there will still be obstacles to overcome. Regardless of what comes our way, good or bad, we promise to keep you in the loop with weekly updates detailing all of the production process. The best part of a kickstarter project is the journey to fulfillment and we can't wait to go on a new adventure with YOU - the amazing people who are making it possible! *smiles* Yippee-Ki-YAY!!
