Which RPG does the most with the least words?
I have had a rollicking good time with Vs. Outlaws, both as a GM and as a player. Small enough to fit into a CD case, yet amazingly complete, Vs. Outlaws gives you everything you need to ride the range as a cowboy, fighting criminals (or the law) and doing all those Wild Westy things you want your character to do without becoming bogged down in a long, tedious, and nonsensical rules system (I’m looking at you, TSR’s Boot Hill!). Plus, you can actually order the rules in packs, so you can hand them out to your players and everyone will have a full copy of the rules!
The game is solid, playable, and streamlined. Because when it’s high noon and you’re standing on Main Street ready to skin your smokewagon, you don’t want to get bogged down looking up rules.
