Saddle up, Partner!
Welcome to Gomorra. A bustling settlement in the Weird West. Rebuilding after a cataclysmic event, the citizens of the town struggle to remake their lives. But of course, powers always come into play. Various factions fight for control of the town, sometimes behind the scenes, sometimes right out in the streets. It’s not a common day that lead does not fly.
Soon it will be time for you to choose your allegiance. Will you join the noble Law Dogs, set to preserve law and justice in the town? Or will you find yourself falling in with The Sloane Gang, and taking what you want regardless of who it costs? Perhaps you have an eye for progress… and cash, well the Morgan Cattle Company is always looking to hire driven individuals. Lastly, maybe you have something to run away from, something in your past that simply won’t let go, there’s always the Fourth Ring and its circus you can run off to. They’re always taking in lost souls…
Doomtown is an expandable card game set in the Deadlands™ universe. Based on the classic collectible game, Doomtown: Reloaded is a fast-paced game of gun slingin’,spell slingin’ and mud-slingin’! Use poker hands and card pulls for everything from gunfights to summoning abominations.
Doomtown plays equally well as a two-player or multi-player game. It is set in the old American West of the late 19th Century, in a boomtown where gunslingers, politicians, gangs and companies all vie for control of Gomorra. When you play, you will represent one such faction.
But this isn’t just the Wild West; this is the Weird West. In amongst the cowboys and ranchers are spell slingers, abominations, and mad scientists.
You win the game by being the person that ends up controlling the town. You generally get control because the dudes in your gang manage to exert their influence over key areas and establishments in the town.
At its core, the game is about four things:
1) Building your deck
2) Creating a town
3) Moving around the town with dudes in order to control it
4) Having shoot-outs to sort out the conflict, because everyone is trying to control the town
