Friday night we had two miniatures games at the club.  Eric ran a Hogwarts themed game with Blood and Swash.  The other was Zeb’s cowboy free for all using the old TSR Boot Hill rules.

The game was a wild affair with various groups fighting to break a prisoner out of the jail, keep him in the jail, and/or pump him for information.

In the end I was able to hold onto the prisoner; however, Bruce and his “opportunists” won the game by bartering their services for gold.

It has been many, many years since I have played Boot Hill.  It was in many ways nostalgic to play a game with percentile dice.  While it had quite a few modifiers and charts, it didn’t take too long to pick it back up.  Everyone had a good time.
