I have really enjoyed playing Great Escape Games’ rules, Dead Man’s Hand. It is an enjoyable set of rules that allow for games in the Old West. I like the mechanics and the ease of playing.
Great Escape have taken their rules into 1920s prohibition with The Chicago Way and these rules allow you to recreate the Untouchables.
Their next set of rules look very interesting with the addition of what looks like the undead into the Old West, with their new set, The Curse of Dead Man’s Hand.
The curse has finally come to Dead Man’s Hand.Get together anybody you can, time to put petty rivalries aside and stand together against an enemy who shows no mercy, who will take it all, and leave you with nothing, not even your soul.
You need a copy of the Dead Man’s Hand rule book to use the source book.
As well as rules, there are going to be some new buildings from 4Ground, which you can see as background in these photographs from Great Escape Games.
These buildings look like they will also be useful for “normal” games of Dead Man’s Hand.
