A "Bold" End to Western Legends

Posted by Kolossal Games (Creator)

A word from Travis R. Chance:

Western Legends is the 16th successful Kickstarter campaign of which I have been a part. While many might think it would be old hat at this point, this game is special in a number of ways. It has the most backers of all these projects. The funding sum is higher than any of these other games. Lastly, this game was the most work and love I have ever put into a game--including ones I designed.

When we set out to start Kolossal Games, I knew we needed a special game for our inaugural launch. It had to be unique; it had to matter. Western Legends was that game, literally from the moment I saw it. I cannot express my gratitude to each and every one of you for being able to see those same qualities as supporters of this project. There is nothing greater in this world than having people appreciate what you have made, what you believe in, and what you have endeavored to make as consummate as humanly possible.

But saying thank you feels like it’s just not enough. With that said, for all you have done, all your comments, all your love, all your belief, we will be adding one final surprise to this campaign for those who helped make this such a monumental success. Did you catch the hints in our previous two updates?

We recently wrapped up a social stretch goal poll wherein Pearl Hart won the fan’s votes. A number of fans also voted for Bat Masterson, who led a more-than-legendary life in the Old West. Naturally, we wanted to show our thanks by including him as the final character in the Fistful of Extras to our backers. Take a look!

Bat Masterson served as a sheriff, marshal, and was named one of the "White House Gunfighters" by Theodore Roosevelt. He was involved in a number gunfights and not always as a lawman. Bat had a number of exploits that involved sneaking a man out of Nebraska with Wild Bill Cody, rescuing Doc Holliday, and working with Wyatt Earp on a number of occasions. Bat's notoriety as a gunfighter spread across the nation when his stories were printed in the New York Sun securing his spot as a legend of the West.


We just received some more pictures from the talented folks at Pure Arts of the minis they are working diligently to bring to all of your tables. Take a look!




From all of us to all of you, thank you so much. We hope to see you all back here for our next project, Kami-Sama, next month.

      Thanks Kolassal
      Was trying to look at images but my eyesight ain't young anymore, and paged through updates and the campaign page and couldn't find the name. Quick reply much appreciated about Hickok

    8. ToThePoint

      Does anyone know if Rhado's concerns around the Man in Black being too two-dimensional got addressed between the review and the KS launch? I haven't found any explicit statement but may not have read deep/fast enough.

      Thanks in advance.

      @Jake, Thank you for pointing out the typo.

      @ToThePoint, Wild Bill Hickok is one of the 12 base game characters.

    11. ToThePoint

      Pretty sure you intended Wild Bill Hickok. Which I think is pretty odd to be missing as a close companion of Calamity Jane, especially since they are offer a $9 deck of playing cards. Dead-Man's Hand anyone... Ace's and 8's... Saloon No. 7... Not sure how he got missed.
