Hootin' it up at Owlcon
Gutshot at Owlcon for 10th year
Jan. 31, 2009 -- Houston, Texas

Hey there all you Gutshotters! Paul "Mad Dog" Mauer here with a little news from Gutshot Headquarters.

Our Pard'ner Marshal Mike Mitchell will be heading to OwlCon again this year for the 10th year in a row.  (Can we have a big round of applause for Mike?  He's done an awfully good job attending this Con there in Houston and Gutshot wouldn't be where it is without his tireless efforts.  Way to go Mike!) 

Mike will be running one of the winning adventures selected from our Showdowns & Shootouts contest "GUTSHOT -- I Hit a Vein!" at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 7, 2009.

You can get a sneak peak at the adventure on the S&S Winners' Page.

The adventure is by our old pal, Dion Duran, and it's about some no-good varmints trying to take over a mine from the rightful owners. We've even thrown in some additional rules for fighting in the dark and collecting as much gold as you can carry.

So if'n you've got a hankerin' for slappin' leather and flyin' lead and want to test your mettle (not metal) against the best Houston has to offer, then come on out and get Gutshot this coming weekend. It won't hurt much and I'm sure Mike will make sure that you have a great time like he always does. Not to mention you'll have the opportunity to give Mike any feedback about the new rules. He loves feedback. In return, you might just win one of the great prizes he'll be packing in his saddlebags.

By the way, on Sunday Mike will also be running a playtest for an entirely new game. I'd tell you more about it, but he threatened to have Ole Doc Murphy fill my backside with buckshot if I spilled the beans about this one too soon. I can tell you that this news will knock your boots off when you hear it, so hold on to your hats for a few days. We'll make an official announcement sometime later this week.

OwlCon is the longest-running gaming convention in Houston. It runs Friday through Sunday, Feb. 6-8 at Rice University in Houston, Texas.  For more info, please visit their Website: www.owlcon.com.
