This is a rather fun game of the Far-West. You visit frontier towns as you go around the outer track, and you can buy up parts of them (bank, saloon, etc.) to secure revenue. Whenever you visit the Bank, you have the option of holding it up, in which case the game switches to a different mode, which uses the inside of the board. This shows a map of the Far West --you are now an outlaw on that map, running for the border. Those of the other players that want to are also put on the map as bounty hunters. Once the chase is resolved --one way or another-- the pieces return to the outer track.
It's been suggested to replace the rather over-simple "poker game" rules with true game-inside-the-game poker but we've found this can increase playing time maybe too much.
The crux of the game are the ranches, particularly the cattle ranches. They generate huge income which is then used to make political power plays. The outcome of those is to put players under your "control". You win by controlling everybody else. This is quite true to the theme and keeps the game down to manageable length. Who gets the ranches boils down to luck of the dice rolls, which makes the game too luck-driven by far.
