You find yourself in the Black Hills of South Dakota, on the hunt for gold. Although your path is treacherous, risking bandit encounters, duels with angry rivals, and more, your weight in gold waits for you if you are successful. We never recommend judging a book by its cover, but this game's gorgeous book box and artwork will wow you from the outside in. The fast paced gameplay requires you to balance cooperation and your own selfish motivations, leading to all sorts of fun choices and dice-rolling. The game is easy to learn, quick to play, and rewards risk taking. It can be played in duels, but the game is greatly enriched with four or more players. The artwork is colorful and enticing, and the textured wood pieces are a delightful touch. Deadwood is a lot of fun and offers plenty of opportunites for friendly cowboy smack-talk!
