Wild West Campaign: Home Page Bisbee Review Campaign Map Characters
 
 

Congratulations and welcome to the club's Wild West Campaign. This page serves as a sort of information clearing house for club members to; check on the financial resources available to them for the next move, check up on the status of their various characters, and of course view our exciting map and plot their future machinations. We are of course happy to share this information with nonmembers who may merely enjoy viewing these pages, rather than using them as a tool for the complete domination of the early 20th century Southwest.

This, perhaps unnecessarily high tech, approach to running our campaign gradually grew out of the manifest inability of our club members to actually hold meetings, or plot out their moves in person. So, in a desperate effort to maximize gaming time whilst actually at the club, we decided to have a go at providing the umpire with information about each player's move through the use of the Internet.
(The jury is still out on whether this is actually less work for the long-suffering umpire.)

Anyway, some time ago we began using a set of Wild West Gunfight rules named "The Rules With No Name." (A free copy of these rules may still be available from the Wargames Foundry web site.) The game became exceptionally popular with our membership, despite the fact that most of us weren't that interested in either cowboys, or the 'Ole West' to begin with. Gradually it was decided that some sort of campaign should be implemented to lend meaning to our repeated shoot-outs with "Little Lead Dollies." (It's my impression that the wives still don't really 'get' the hobby of wargaming.) And once Major Weenie got a hold of things it rapidly mushroomed from a simple set of gunfights in the United States of the 1880's into a rather eccentric recreation of Mexico's Great Revolution from 1910.

So far 'campaign time' seems to unfold in almost real time, and since The Great Revolution lasted from 1910 to 1920, or 1930 depending upon who you talk to, it looks like we'll have plenty of material to run our little game.

A copy of our modified/club version of the rules can be found here Rules as a PDF
Prices on General Merchandise cane now be found at the bottom of the most recent copy of our campaign newsletter.
Information about campaign players, their available resources, and their characters can be viewed by clicking on the link to the Characters page.
And finally, even if you're not actually in the campaign, be sure and take a peek at our spectacular map. An item create by an '"award wining" (no joke, I've seen the Emmy© on his fireplace mantle) CGI Effects artist.
