2 – 6 Players (Though we have links to several excellent solo variants: Solo Variant of Western Legends, Living Legends Solo Variant, and a fun challenge too: Western Legends Solo Challenge), 60 – 90 Minutes playing time, Ages 14 and up. Western Legends scores a decent 7.7 on Board Game Geek, but even more importantly sits in the Top 60 Thematic board games of all rated games. Dripping in amazing old west theme, the flavor text and historical character narrative are exceptional. Sandbox in nature as there is so much to do, the game can switch from meandering to focused depending on the strategic play of everyone involved – so if the group is more relaxed the experience is completely different than if the group is strategically working toward the win state from the very beginning. As with most sandbox games, it’s the nature of play. Categories: Adventure and American West. Game Mechanics: Action Points, Area Movement, Betting and Bluffing, Dice Rolling, Hand Management, Pick-up and Deliver, Take That, and Variable Player Powers.

Historic characters from the American Wild West face off and write new legends across the face of history! Gather your gun, your mount, and your grit as you forge your path into the history books.
Western Legends is an open-world sandbox tabletop adventure for 2-6 players (Though we have links to several excellent solo variants as well!) set in the American Wild West. Players assume the roles of historical figures of the era, earning their legendary status in a variety of ways: gamble, drive cattle, prospect for gold, rob the bank, fight bandits, pursue stories, become an outlaw, keep the peace. The possibilities are darn near endless.
Each player’s turn starts with drawing poker cards and/or gaining cash. Then they choose three actions. Possible actions include: move on the map (how far depends on whether they have a mount), doing a location-specific action (such as mine for gold if they are at a gold mine, gamble if they’re in a saloon, etc.), fight other players at the same location (either duel them, rob them, or arrest them if they’re wanted), play poker cards that have action abilities, etc. Legendary Points (LPs) are earned based on the outcomes of many of these actions, and the winner is whoever has the most LPs at the end of the game.
