First Blood in Distraction, New Mexico

On 16 July 2010 we had our first action in our Wild West town of Distraction, New Mexico.  Nick, Rosie, Jeff, Ann, Todd and Lissa divided into two teams.  Todd (Sheriff Arkansas Smith), Lissa (Deputy Lil) and Rosie (Deputy Monica La Tour) began the game in the north of town at the jail while the outlaws Ann (Annie Wesson), Jeff (Jim Loughton), and Nick (Norm) began the game on the porch of the bank as they exited with their loot.

The game was played using only the most basic of the Gutshot rules as Ann and Rosie had never played a miniatures game before.  The rules played smoothly and everyone had a great time.  The crew have decided to all go outlaw and the campaign will continue with the players running an outlaw gang.  The best line of the night was early on when after a round of absolutely terrible shooting outlaw Jim Loughton exclaimes, "Well, I cain't shoot if I cain't spit!"
