In the West, there’s only one law that everyone understands; that guarantees a quick and decisive verdict; and that treats all people as equals . . . and that’s the Gunman’s Law!

Not since the inception of TSR’s classic Boot Hill has there been a game that captures the flavor and deadliness of the old West like Gunman’s Law.  Carefully blending the historic with the cinematic, Gunman’s Law recreates the gunfights of the mid-to-late 1800s with an unprecedented mix of versatility and verisimilitude.

Gunman’s Law allows both the solo player and multiple players (either "versus" or cooperatively) to recreate everything from the classic one-on-one showdown in a town’s main street to deadly ambushes. Hire your gun out to farmers being pushed off their land by a local cattle baron, or go to the aid of the town’s lawman who has to ride out to where a group of stagecoach robbers are reputedly hiding.

Part board game, part RPG and great for use with miniatures, Gunman’s Law breaks new ground by using a multi-purpose Fast Action Card deck to determine everything from a shootist’s speed and accuracy, reaction to danger, damage done and effect of that damage.

This has to be the most accurate portrayal of cinematic gunfights in a tactical situation since Cowboys. It also serves as a brilliant solo/multi-player RPG to boot. I highly recommend it to anyone into the western cinematic gaming genre: fans of Boot [...]

I am a backer of this game on Kickstarter. One never knows quite what to expect the game to be by what's on the Kickstarter page. This is why I love the preview PDF approach. It gives me a little better idea of what I am getting into. The file is [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
