Game Introduction

At the beginning of the game, you can select one of three levels of play: Deputy, Sheriff, or Marshal. You will get four gunfights per game. If you win all four gunfights, you will get a Bonus Draw where you will try to outmatch Wes Flowers. If you beat him you will become one of the Best Deputies, Super Sheriffs or Master Marshals, depending on the level of difficulty that was selected.

Game Play

Your gun must remain in the holster until you are given a signal to draw and fire. If you remove the gun from the holster or draw before a signal is given, you will be fouled. If you are fouled in one showdown (including The Bonus Draw), you will be disqualified and proceed to the next. As soon as you are given the signal, you must draw and fire your gun at your opponent as quickly as possible before he or she fires at you.

In some gunfights, you will sometimes face two opponents instead of one, but you will only take on one at a time. The game ends when you have completed all four or five gunfights regardless of whether you win, lose or foul. If you beat Wes Flowers in the Bonus Draw, you will be a grand winner and you will get to put your initials on one of the three tables of best players.

Thoughts: "I love this game because it is fun and enjoyable for the whole family. Also my husband, Frank is one of the cowboys you get to shoot in this game. He is the one that says This is right up your alley and he is also the cowboy that comes out of the outhouse. We have been trying to find this game to buy for our own. We played this game at several entertainment places. It is a great game and hope you enjoy it too."
