Etienne's Game of the Week
Western Legends is described as Red Dead Redemption: the board game. As a big fan of the video game, I knew I was gonna love Western Legends.
The game gives you a character, puts you in the middle of the Far West and tells you: Do whatever you want. Play poker, dig for gold, rob a bank, fight local gangs, steal cattle: there are many options and they all represent a viable strategy. All the decisions move you up the Marshall track or the Outlaw track. While being an outlaw gets you the quick buck, you become a target for other players. They will try to stop you and collect the reward on your head.
Western Legends is an immersive, terribly funny game where every choice you make is important and will advance the story you are writing with your friends. It supports up to 6 players and is an excellent "beer and pretzel" type of game.
