Hi Guys,

I haven't been able to gets this recorded as a video as my baby daughter arrived this week and that has obviously taken up a lot of my time.

However I'm not going to let you guys go without a spoiler on a Friday so here it is:

The artwork turned up last night on Facebook and people immediately set about trying to decide who the dude was. The card is however, not a dude.

It's an attire and like all the attires we have seen so far it provides bonus influence. In this case you get +1 INF while you are not wanted for a 2 GR investment.

So, twice the cost of a Fancy New Hat for the same INF gain however this time it's conditional upon a game state and doesn't have the protection of the hat.

So what do you get for that price? Honestly, a pretty bad ass piece of gear.

While a Deputy has it they do not become wanted for fighting at a private deed, which is a pretty decent effect by itself. You want to be able to make sure you can keep the influence when you play this and while you can trade it if a dude DOES get a bounty, being able to avoid becoming wanted in the first place is really good.

On top of that we get a call out action as well. I LOVE call out actions, especially ones as easy as this, just boot the attire and call out a wanted dude, yes he can refuse and go home booted, but that takes him out of play for a turn. Also, since this is a call out from a card effect it can be used at your opponent's home punishing those nuisance decks that don't like to fight (I'm looking at you Slide!)

It does share a value with Shotgun, however that's only a minor issue. People are starting to get smart to turn 1 shotgun and are starting less and less tasty targets for it with cards like Jacqueline Isham providing higher value alternatives to their usual starters.

All in all this is a solid piece of gear for any Law Dogs deck. Especially given how easy it is to throw bounty out now with Andrew Burton backing up the Core Set Outfit.

Is it possible for this character (who hasn't a name) to turn out to be a resurrected Lawrence Blackwood? He has longish hair, like Blackwood, and a scarf (not uncommon), but Blackwood's was used to cover his face on his card. We never saw his real mug. Moreover, this guy doesn't look exactly "human." Closer to an abomination. I think that would be a pretty neat turn of events for the deceased Blackwood.

So...what happens if a Wanted Deputy joins a posse at a private location? Does their bounty increase, since they're not "becoming wanted", or does it not, because what the text means is "they don't gain bounty"?
