Western Legends (Solo Variant)


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 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.

Key Points
– Award-Winning gaming experience set in the American West!
– Beautiful artwork, and presentation brings this highly thematic game to life.
– Intuitive gameplay and choices let’s you write your own legend every game!

Western Legends Solo Variant

This is my version of Western Legends Solo. It uses the core rules, but changes how the Sheriff moves, includes an NPC(The Bushwhacker), a dynamic Gold Market and use of The Man In Black.
I hope you enjoy.

Western Legends Solo Mode Cards: The Bushwhacker and the Card Shark

I have created a set of cards based upon Tom ox and Robert Caroll’s fantastic Western Legends solo mode variant to make game play a little smoother.

There are reference cards for setup, character interaction, etc and the bushwhacker NPC now has its own set of cards that, when revealed, show the current bushwhacker’s traits, weapon and whether or not the card shark is currently hustling cards at the saloon.

These print and play cards are not meant for purchase or resale in order to respect the wishes of both the publisher and the artists.

Cards can be printed on A4 paper front to back and cut along the lines.

GOLD RUSH is an easy fix to the problematic Gold strategy. BRUTAL BANDITS is for those of us that can’t even buy the “Fistful” expansion. Plus other rules adding difficulty.

Western Legends – LOBBANS House Rules 1.35


The first part is House rules for Locations. Essential rebalancing (and most popular in my game group) is how the Mine, Cabaret and Poker (specifically “Ten-Gallon”) now works. Would never play without those three changes myself as they encourage the player to focus on interactive, difficult and interesting tasks rahter than, for example, pretty dull “turning in cash for LP” actions.

The second part is a simple addon to the Story Cards that give some extra variation.

The third part is a “Mini expansion” and here especially unique weapon abilities for shotgun, revolver and rifle are something that should interest most western fanatics.
