I just posted a set of card-driven Wild West Rules on my blog. Quick, simple and none too serious; so "Fill Yer Hand…."

When it's time to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

Looks interesting. I generally don't like card-based systems, but I like the concept of playing cards for Old West games. I assume each figure gets its own set of cards, so you need to juggle multiple "hands" if you are running more than 1 character.

79th PA,
Yes this is true, normally we don't run more than three characters each.

There are some modifications (yet to be properly codified) that allow for the running of "bit-part" figures who operate in groups. If there is interest in that sort of thing I can whip them into shape and add them to the rules.

Looks it would be worth trying them out.
