Cowboy wargame "Legends of the Old West"


I’m not a big fan of GW’s Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game*, which is a little odd. Because I do like Legends of the Old West, which is reportedly based on LOTR.

Legends of the Old West is great for skirmish games. Neat mechanics, nothing fancy but it works. But the system really shines once you add the campaign system on. It lets to take a gang of cowboys, outlaws, or law abiding citizens through linked scenarios, buying equipment and adding/losing gang members as you go.

And it just works great.

We’ve had a ton of fun with it.

* And what’s with calling LOTR a “Strategy Battle Game”?
