We had another successful weekend at RECRUITS, both as a vendor and as a GM.

I ran two Fistful of Lead Wild West games Friday night. Both times El Guano escaped with Baby Faced Fenster in tow, but each was a nail biter to the end.
Then, Saturday morning were two Fistful of Lead games for the Viva Revolucion! supplement, the Battle of Casas Grande. The first battle the Federal garrison was overrun, but the second game they managed to hold out.

The final game Saturday evening was a Fistful of Lead game used as Pulp SciFi game starring Dash Dixon, hero of the Spaceways. This was another place test of arts for an upcoming title, possibly a Kickstarter. Dash had to get a captured Imperial robot across the crowded backwater spaceport to his waiting ship. There robot had half of Emperor Xorg-Khan's plans for his latest terror weapon: the Murder Moon! The other half of the plans were stored on another robot wandering around the spaceport.
I included a joker in the deck to give some random events. The first one activated the Spaceport Security to be used by the player playing the joker.
The second Joker randomly moved all the wandering Robots, while third Joker played gave the player the use of Vanz Glortho, intergalactic villain.
In the end, the Robot Legion nabbed the robot from Dash, who was knocked out early on. Don't worry folks, it was only a flesh wound.
Just by coincidence, there was another GM running a Fistful of Lead Magnificent Seven game. Wish I'd have taken a picture. It looked great.

But the highlight, as usual, was the great looking and fun game hosted by Cluck Amok. His 54mm French and Indian War game using Fistful of Lead: Horse & Musket through a lot of sales our way. I was busy hosting my own games but there was a lot of hoops and hollers coming from the table.
Thanks to everyone who played, and the great folks at RECRUITS.

As always, you and Chris put on some of the nicest looking games at Recruits. Wish I could have made it.
