Shootout in San Juan! - Dead Man's Hand Battle Report

The boy and I had our very first game of Dead Man's Hand at the weekend (at long last!)...and it was brilliant! Fast-paced and action-packed, we both loved it!

As this was our first game we didn't bother with the Opening or Second Scenes but went straight for the Final this case the Final Scene of A Fistful of Models, Showdown! My son chose to play the Lawmen, in this case Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and four Deputy US Marshals, whilst I played the Outlaws, led by Black Jack and the notorious gunslinger, Mad Maggie, with four Dudes!

Anyway, without further ado, here is the battle report...Shootout in San Juan!

We were a bit pressed for time at the end and so didn't play until one side was Wiped Out or failed a Big Nerve Test but instead just called it an inconclusive draw...but it hardly mattered as we had so much fun playing it. Honestly, I can't recommend Dead Man's Hand enough! Can't wait until the next game!

Here's a Dropbox Link and a Google Docs Link to a PDF version of the battle report...the pages are a bit bigger and easier to read.

All miniatures are from Artizan and were painted for me by the inimitable Matt Slade of Glenbrook Games.The buildings are middle-eastern ones from The Colonial Steamboat Company and the gaming mat is from Deep Cut Studios.
