Gutshot Posse hits “Da Big Easy” for Bayou Wars
“It’s a good thing I restocked,” said store spokesman Chris Petit.
Little Wars has graciously made space for Murphy and Gutshot at their table, and he will be on hand to explain the game system, answer questions, and autograph books.
“This convention appearance is continuing to kick off our summer season with a bang,” said co-founder Mike Mitchell. “With Paul (Mauer) in Enfilade last week, with Murphy in New Orleans this week, and me at San Con next week – not to mention our summer campaign staring at the end of June – this is going to be one wild and hot summer!”
Posse member Paul Mauer joined Whitewash City creator Eric Hotz at the Enfilade game convention in Washington State, running Gutshot and getting high praise.
“The players in the games we ran all had a great time,” Paul said, noting that the players really caught on to the rules very fast. “Heck, halfway through the first game the players started correcting me on the modifiers, and by then they didn’t even need a GM. They were good to go on their own.”
Praise for Gutshot, and especially for Paul and Eric, was abundant.
“I’ll be running our good-old “Last Man Standing” game at Bayou Wars,” Murphy added. “That is a good and fun game for a convention and everybody just likes to be able to get down quick and dirty like and send hot lead into their best friend. Mike was savvy enough to realize that a good prize for this game would be one of our coveted steins from the General Store. When a prize is involved, the players get even more competitive. Naturally the prize will go to the ‘Last Man Standing’.”
With the release of Gutshot this year, the conventions, and demo games have been keeping the Hawgleg team pretty busy, which is one reason why Mitchell is staying back in Texas this time.
“Mitchell usually stays and holds down the fort, while I think of myself as the outrider.” Murphy said.
Mitchell, the “old married man” of the group, said his wife prefers that he stay a little closer to the ole homestead.
“My wife definitely doesn’t trust me,” he said with a sly grin. “Oh, she knows I’d never fool around… it’s just that she doesn’t trust me not to come home with 90 pounds of unpainted lead and a car full of new rulebooks! Heh. Better leave the temptation to Murph!”
