Perhaps this award is a bit late in coming (the play itself occurred in 2009, wasn't recording on BGG until 2011, and is now being showcased in 2017) but better late than never! As a dad myself, this sounds like great fun and I just wonder if the reporter's boys have turned into avid gamers...one can only hope. Excellent read!

I've actually played this implementation online, and though spartan in design, it gets the job done nicely. What I particularly liked about this was that it wasn't just a wall of text AAR, but something that you could follow along using the screenshots the reporter provided. Now if the developers in charge of getting this game onto mobile devices would only hurry up, that would be great. Nice work!

As our first-place reporter states at the beginning of his story, creating narratives out of these types of games requires a lot of work! That's precisely why I like to showcase these reports. They take a lot of effort and they're a great public service done on behalf of other gamers who like to know how a game they're researching actually plays out on the table. I for one have always been on the lookout for good Western-themed games, and this might just fit the bill. Great work!
