Ugh!!! Why would you house rule the 2 LP Story Card... and then not play the house rule consistently. No need for any house rules, especially if you're teaching the game on YouTube. The game has been play tested 100s of times, play it as it was meant to be played.

I really love the theme and want to give this game a go.

Billy the kid is Bass Reaves son and no one names him Billy Bass Reaves?

I love the idea of this game, but the combat mechanics, and actually every mechanic involving the cards, is just not super interesting. Plus I feel like Poker gives too much money. You should have to work for your gear so you feel attached to it, but being able to buy and upgrade a horse in a single turn devalues the horse. And Imagine if outlaws could steal equipment? Like "Oh I had my lucky pistol, Lightning, but it was stolen. Now I have to track down the scum who wronged me and get it back". That would be awesome. Also I wish the story cards were closer to encounter cards and had... IDK... Stories. I want to like this game, but with a $75 MSRP, I think I'll pass.

1:12:00 did she just discard a card to the top of the deck, and then drew that same card??

So Mica won because you forgot to give her the Wanted points twice but no one noticed.
TheDietcola (1 month ago)
Mica also cheated and took 4 actions on her final turn, netting 1 LP on that 4th action. If you take that away from her and then give her 4 wanted points, she ends up tying Gina. Ties go to the player with the higher Marshall score, so Gina still wins.

They should invite Matt Mercer to play this game.

One of the greatest lawmen in history, and Beka has him rob a bank. 😄😂🤣

24:23 Her movement should have stopped due to the bandit, and she would have needed to fight that bandit.
Ken Johnson (2 months ago)
I love the sandbox idea, but I think the players need to stick to their character concept or it just turns into a meaningless race for points. I was disappointed when Bass Reeves, possibly the best lawman in U.S. history immediately robbed a bank. Obviously, you're free to do whatever you want, but it would be a more interesting and cohesive story if people "stuck to the script". Also the story cards seemed too random, it would be more interesting if there were random events/encounters associated with the different locations; a bar room brawl, chased by an angry bull at the corral, etc. Great game concept, I think it needs a little work to make it more than...a poker simulation.

How appropriate that Doc Holiday ends the game in mass revelry.
Luke Green (2 months ago)
Tuberculosis is, indeed, the same thing as consumption. Also, I think Doc's special power should be to get LP from wounds since he was actively trying to die in a blaze of glory before his disease could kill him.

poor mica, doesn't know poker :) still fun to watch her. The game itself is not stellar though.

I don't care about these dorky boardgames...I just like to watch the pretty girl. (Dirty thoughts, fap fap, giggity)

You should play Warhammer!!
Thomas Minnick (3 months ago)
The whole “hand limit” thing seemed useless. Almost all of them just stayed at hand limit the whole time, and drew up to like 10 cards instantly at the start of their turns by the end. What’s the point of a hand limit if you get to ignore it and carry 9-10 cards around for your entire turn?
Daniel Gallagher (1 month ago)
Hand limit prevents resource pooling form turn to turn.
Richard Short (3 months ago)
The lack of understanding of poker is maddening.
wizo656 (17 days ago)
I was playing poker while watching this, so I might have missed something, but what exactly is maddening?

yes it is
Petr Vojtěch (1 month ago)
Same here!
Night Cat (3 months ago)
This looks great. A bit confusing at times, but simple enough overall without sacrificing player agency. In a fight where one of those disregard cards isn't played, do both cards' actions need to be resolved, or just the winner's?
RecklessFables (3 months ago)
Weird to see Mica introduced not as being from The Know.

Where is Whil Wheaton! I miss Tabletop.
Nain1982 (2 months ago)
+oliwanto I couldn't recommend one in particular, some are better than others as they can have several approaches or types of games they typically cover. Rodney has good explanations of rules. For runthroughs of whole games I like Rahdo. For humor, Shut Up and Sit Down or No Pun Included.
oliwanto (2 months ago)
Nain1982 Who would you recommend to watch then? As I know of only tabletop and game the game. I do agree with you. As I am partially a non-gamer till tabletop and tabletop simulator became a thing.
Nain1982 (2 months ago)
+oliwanto well im sure she has the pressure of replacing him. Will Wheaton is overrated, there are other channels that have existed and talked about board games with more detail and informative. But he did introduce gaming to non-gamers. Possibly better than others did. I am not a fan of neither but I do think she does a great job and if they played heavier games i prob enjoy watching them. I understand why it's not possible for them to do.
oliwanto (2 months ago)
Nain1982 I won't lie. I like Will Wheaton. I honestly didn't know he left geek and sundry. But either way, for criticism I have none. She explains the game in depth for people which I felt tabletop lacked but tabletop had simple instructions and its humor was nice and made me laugh. The humor in this has not struck me like the other did. Her voice is nice and smooth which leads to people to enjoy her speaking and instructing. If her jokes for the instruction part of the video are part of the script they are not good. To me the jokes lack feeling and feel awkward. But other then that I haven't found anything else to really have issues with.
oliwanto (2 months ago)
Silver2233 That sucks, he will be missed. But I am glad they are still doing tabletop gaming. I did love the idea behind it sense many people have never known any other games other then monopoly and etc.

The music was too much! Next time I hope you realize that it isn't necessary to have it playing all the ... time.
Jindorek (3 months ago)
I don't understand why there is a limit on cash? what an arbitrary rule to have in a game.
Saiful Mokhtar (3 months ago)
It's also for the reason of the Cabaret, where you can spend, I believe, $30 per LP. If you can have more than $120, you can just easily play poker or rob banks non-stop then go to the cabaret and dump all those money to straight away get your 15 points and trigger the end game. To avoid this breaking the game moment, they limit the cash you can carry so that at most you can get at the cabaret is 4 points. The "thematic" reason is that back then, that's all the wallet can carry or something, ha ha ha ha.
Night Cat (3 months ago)
I suppose it just removes the problem of running out of pot cash. If you had no limit, you could just hoard it all to keep it from the other players, lock them out of shopping, break bank robberies, & potentially unbalance things with the cabaret.
RaptorusMaximus (3 months ago)
I'm really happy Gina won.
Michael Cotton (3 months ago)
South Park?
57thorns (3 months ago)
Also, a lot of money won om poker and no money spent in the Cabaret. instead you just gave the money away to "charity". And why this aversion to medicin? Gettting shot as the doc is not at all bad, you can spend one action and ten dollar to get a bunch of poker cards.
57thorns (3 months ago)
Spoiler: The Sheriff did have some gambling problems from the start then goes to rob the bank. Wow. did not see that coming. Also, it is nice to see this show improving over time. The first episodes I watched felt weak, but the later episodes I think I do get a feel for the game.
animist channel (3 months ago)
That was more intuitive and fun than it seemed from the initial rules. It helps when people get into the characters like that.
tenkawa10 (3 months ago)
Gina gained 2 LP at 54:38. With the house rules they just implemented should have scored both story cards!
Jindorek (3 months ago)
i reckon she didnt want to full on cheat, they were just speeding things up a bit.
Steven Mermelstein (3 months ago)
With the rub some dirt story card it said may take a wound to draw a poker card so she didn’t have to take that wound . Just letting ya know
Eric Booth (3 months ago)
Wonder how long it will take them to get a Lecarda game on the table. Something like Lisboa or Vinhos.
Zeenordnihon (3 months ago)
Thanks for showing the game. Theme sounded interesting for me, but the game tries to do everything Western ending up doing little bit of everything, which weakens the game a bit for me. Thanks again, great job Game the Game team.
Jindorek (3 months ago)
looks like fun, but it is a bit simple for my liking. too few options when it comes to actions. looks like a good family type game tho.
Vishaan Singh (3 months ago)
If you have Mica around, give her a guest spot on Crit Role please
Edward Allsep (3 months ago)
So much fun watching Mica try to do poker.
Michael Magee (3 months ago)
Omg mica! I miss you on The Know so much!
Tim D (3 months ago)
As I've sold off my Avalon Hill Gunslinger game which was very rules heavy ( more of a simulation.), this looks like more fun. Plus being partially card driven helps to remove the constant rules check, which puts this game in my most likely to pick up list. Thanks for the gameplay.
gasol18 (3 months ago)
So many rules😐
Jindorek (3 months ago)
hardly. there's only about 5 different actions you can take.

I thought today was supposed to be power rangers?
Haramoto (3 months ago)
Mica Burton cheated at 1:12:03 she discard a poker card on top of the poker card stack and than she draws it again from the 9!!!!!!!!!!
Matt Kruse (3 months ago)
Gina also “cheated.” She arrested the guy, but she wasn’t a marshal. I don’t really blame her though as Becca thought that was the rule and I myself have played it this way before finding out otherwise.
mikleton (3 months ago)
Am I the onlyone who has a hard time hearing what they say on, game the game, with that loud background music?
imkluu (3 months ago)
It is sometimes distracting.
Edward Allsep (3 months ago)
I can hear well enough, but it is very forward for background music.
Tim D (3 months ago)
Sounds fine on my end.
Owen Stewart (3 months ago)
Why bother with how to play videos if you're just going to include it at the start of game the game
Kevin Engel (3 months ago)
Search engine optimization. They want to get the views when people don't want to read the rules book.
Jindorek (3 months ago)
context. the purpose of this is to showcase the game, with no rules knowledge it is difficult to follow what they do sometimes. i get more annoyed when they include the rules and then end up messing up half of them in play.
Josh Taylor (3 months ago)
some people don't care about playthroughs watch the "how to play" only.

Where can i Get this game in the Netherlands or Belgium.

It will be available in Essen, Germany, at the board game fair SPIEL, though
Reakt00r (3 months ago)
It's not released yet. Most people in the EU, if any, haven't even received their kickstarter version yet so I'm pretty sure it'll be a couple of months before it'll be available for purchase.
