It is 1884 and America’s West is populated with small towns full of settlers, coming to prospect for precious metals, set up ranches and run dubious saloons. And now the railroad is coming!

Way out West is ideal for those who like to dress up as the game is full of saloon girls, city slickers, cowboys, Indians, and of course the town Sheriff and his Deputy. It’s one colorful party!

Who Shot the Sheriff

It is 1869 and stagecoaches have brought visitors and trouble to the ghost town of Buzzard Creek. With the Sheriff murdered, a dust storm raging outside, stakes are high in this exciting party.

Who Shot the Sheriff is set some years before Way out West, and uses some of the same characters.

Who Shot the Sheriff is for 12 to 15 guests (plus the host), and is published by Freeform Games LLP.
