    Most interesting element of this story telling game is how the narrator is decided Determined by a high card mechanic or by a player opting to spend chips , the narrator tells how the conflict is resolved The narrator need not be the player who won the conflict.

    An interesting Western game with rules designed to create and heighten conflict right from the get go The fact that you decide who wins a contest by playing poker adds a lot to the flavor of the game as well.
