first of all a Happy New Year to everyone with a lot of health, fortune and success.
May 2017 be a good year with a lot of time for our hobby.
Today my nephew Andrè and I played a good game of Dead Man´s Hand in my man´s cave.
Andrè never played tabletop before and he had a lot of fun. I am sure that he will join some more games in future. I am also not very firm to the rules yet, so it was a test for both of us.
We just decided to play with two full gangs. Everybody had to kill all members of the enemy gang.
Andrè wanted to play Indians and I chose a gang of Cowboys. As I don´t have a gang of Indians of the Wildwest yet I just gave my Mohawks to him. So please don´t be confused if you see Indians of times of the French and Indian War fighting against Cowboys in the Wildwest in the 70´s of the 19th century.
Here are some impressions of our game. Enjoy. :)

|The undertaker who would have a lot to do today.|
|Ready for Action.|
|The SassyGal Saloon I just finished last week.|
|Dolly Dalton - she won´t take part in the fight but she´s the newest civilian of the town.|
|My cowboys occupying two buildings shooting at their enemies. Both guys jam|
|Another two guys occupying a third building.|
|The Indians getting into position.|
|One of my Cowboys Managing to get close to the building occupied by an indian warrior.|
|A second cowboy joining his comrade.|
|What a brilliant shot - My Rancher lying dead on the ground. The chief of my gang has left the set.|
|My cowboy with his shotgun manages to enter the building. He shoots from point blank and gets a bonus of 6. But the card of Andrè prevents his warrior to die immediately.|
|Meanwhile another Indian kills one cowboy with a precise shot.|
|The indian in the building reacts on the shot by the shotgun with a melee and kills him.|
|Andrè again manages to kill one of my cowboys with another excellent shot.|
|The warrior in the building got support by another indian. But my cowboy shoots him down.|
|Another indian is knocked out.|
|This time the indians got a double jam.|
Andrè was lucky and killed all of my cowboys and still had four of his warriors on the table.
It was a great victory for him. Congratulations and I will be prepared for revenge.
