About

Billy the Kid is wanted – Dead or Alive!

The governor of New Mexico Territory has put a $ 500 bounty on the head of outlaw William H. Bonney. and the Sheriff of Lincoln County, Pat Garrett, aims to collect it.

To stay alive, the Kid is rustling cattle for gold in Arizona and New Mexico. But some big guns are on his tail, including Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp.

In an era where there's a fine line between an outlaw and a lawman, you have to know who your real friends are and who has your back. A little gold may help your friends decide which side they're on.

Will the Kid continue to evade the law or will he finally get what's coming to him?

Players: 4-8    Time: 20-30 min.    Ages: 9+

* 2-player quick version added to this game: High Noon Shootout!

** CUSTOMS FRIENDLY to USA, Canada, Europe, Rest of the World. 

*** SHIPPING IS INCLUDED IN THE PLEDGE PRICE. 

Get Billy the Kid! is a social deduction card game in which secret characters investigate each other to unmask the outlaw. Once the Kid is revealed, the game transforms into an action-packed race against time to capture Bonney and collect the bounty!

Game Play - In the first part of the game, players pick through a deck of cards to build a good hand and to investigate the other players. When they play a card, they can ask a question or look at someone's hand or do other actions to try and determine who is who at the table. After the characters are revealed, you play special cards to try and arrest the outlaw. But it won't be easy to arrest the Kid as he has special escape cards, pistols and a little TNT!

You will be one of these (secret) characters when you play: Billy the Kid, Doc Holliday, Wyatt Earp, Sheriff Pat Garrett, Martha Garcia, Haseya Chee, Tom O'Folliard, Bass Reeves.

*Get Billy the Kid! is the second in the 'Get!' series. Get Adler! Deduction Card Game was the first.


Rules are on our website page (scroll down): RULES

*Rules only show for 4 & 5 players. Will be up to 8 (like Get Adler!) and will have 2-player fast game also. We are having a blast playing that one.

 My brother and I used to read tons of comic books as kids. One year, a family friend donated bags full of comics to us and we would spend eons reading them in our bedroom. I can remember reading Billy the Kid! Only recently did I read about The Kid's real, historical life - which is much more fascinating than the comic books. I also remember (in the 70s) watching all the Clint Eastwood movies with my mom, like The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. A Classic. I'm sure that all these Spaghetti Westerns have influenced Get Billy the Kid!
