So a friend and I were talking about the theme for tonights game night and western theme it was. I really like the western theme but find I don't have a whole lot of them in my collection. This list is simply the games of the west that I either own and therefore know something about or are games that I've been interested in finding out more about.

If there is something you think needs to be added that I might not know about please do.

Thanks.

UPDATE: A recent geeklist called Geeklists that should be continued inspired me to revisit this list. Plenty of the items here need to updated as when I added them I had not played them but now have. Not to mention quite a few new western games have come out and need to be added as well. So if you have read this list before it'd be a good idea to go through it again as things have certainly changed.

2nd UPDATE: I've decided to sort this list by the game's rank in hopes that it makes the list a little more useful. I like this list still and hope that people will use it and add to it. I'm sure I'm missing games.

Final UPDATE: This list has be recreated as of today and new updates will happen there. How the west was gamed, Redux. A real western themed geeklist...again.

Enjoy and as always add what I miss.

aka Gold. A kiddie type of pick up/deliver game. It's alright to play with the kids no doubt but that's the extent of it.

With all of the BGG-negativity on this one, it is tough to muster opponents to give it a try, but those who've actually played it and comment on it at CSW seem to think it is a much better game than you'd think around here. I'd love to give this one a try, but suspect that my best chances are using the Cyberboard Gamebox I've been making for it and playing it with fans.

I think I would still play this despite being roll/move. Monopoly with guns? Sounds like JUST what Monopoly's been needing if you ask me.

One of my favorite (multiplayer!) wargames. Each player is a US Cavalry officer, seeking to defeat the Sioux and gain glory for himself, possibly but not necessarily in that order. The Sioux are moved semi-randomly by the "game." Very clever game.

It makes little sense to me that these flip book games like this and Ace of Aces haven't been reprinted. Talk about easy to print and I'd love to have this one. A buddy of mine picked this up for $12 from eBay and that was shipping INCLUDED! Bastitch! Anyway it's a lot of fun wish the sequels had been printed.

Ace of Aces...applied to a Western gunfight.

I thought it was a cool idea, but the Western themed game never caught on. Ace of Aces and Lost Worlds are both legendary, however.

This looks really cool but I'm afraid it might have convoluted miniatures rules and let's face it folks...I'm not a mini gamer. Is it streamlined enough to be fun? Is it full of fiddly rules that bog the game down? Can I be convinced?

Play this game with tongue firmly planted in cheek. All in all, however, not a terrible game. Standard fare for its time; average release from Yaquinto.

Another mini game. Probably a bit more complex than Gutshot, but it's still fast-paced and a lot of fun. It's also available for a free download: http://www.angelfire.com/az3/twohourwargames/free.html
