I know the main rulebook (weighing in close to 70 pages) can be a bit intimidating for getting into the game.
So a couple weeks ago I sat down and created the "Quickdraw" rules, which are the core mechanics of the game distilled down to 4 pages. The Quickdraw rules also contain 4 example posses to play with, and a customized reference sheet.

If you are interested in Dinosaur Cowboys but don't want to hassle with building your own posse, figuring out what objective and deployment to use, etc. then these Quickdraw rules will be perfect for you. Basically all the posse building, campaign rules, dinosaur recruiting, trait customization, weapon / armor purchases, corner cases to rules, etc. have been removed.
What you get instead is a 2-player game where each side chooses one of the four posses, learns how the turn and combat works, and then sits down and plays a game!
