Wanted dead or alive!
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.
From the creative mind of Hervé Lemaître and beautifully brought to life with illustration work by Roland MacDonald, Western Legends puts you in the saddle as one of many historic figures from the American West. Choose your own path to victory in a wide open, sandbox experience where you can play the life of a wanted criminal or become a legendary marshal! Or simply choose to remain neutral and mix your play style earning victory from your skill at poker, gold prospecting, cattle wrangling, or a completely legal duel at High-Noon!
Featuring a highly interactive, narrative experience Western Legends allows you to play as you like and change your strategy on the fly to react to other players and the game state. Each game tells a story told by the players at the table. How will you be remembered?
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.
A Diverse Cast of Characters
Choose from 12 characters of diverse backgrounds with their own strengths, but ultimately choose your own path. Your actions will determine where you fall in the eyes of the law. Wide open strategy mirrors the endless horizon in Western Legends, but features an intuitive design that is easy to pick up and play.
Expand your games of Western Legends with new characters and content from one of the many expansions! Each expansion in the Western Legends line of games comes with more characters, items, and in the case of Western Legends: Ante Up an additional town to explore by locomotive!
Emerge as Legendary!
With hand sculpted miniatures, designed by Pure Arts Studio, you’ll be able to pick the figure that suits your play style. Additional figures can be added to your collection by picking up the Fist Full of Extras expansion to Western Legends.
Whether you choose the path of a wandering gunfighter, a small-town sheriff, or a successful lawman planning, only one player will emerge as Legendary! How will you write your name across the face of history?
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.
