thanks guys..

Will look into these. Shadows of Brimstone is a bit heavy for the intended crowd but +100 points for that one love it.. just not right for the people that are going to be playing also thats a really long game.

Any thoughts on revolver?

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

Definitely check out BANG! The Dice Game as well, I consider it an improvement over the original.

Also, for more ideas, the Western family game category:

American West

And some curated geeklists:
Western games are like jackrabbits right now! (newer Western games)
How the west was gamed, Redux. A real western themed geeklist...again. (pretty comprehensive)

Strange theme for a party. Everyone covered in sweat and dirt and no-one's talking... just staring menacing at other guests.

High Noon Saloon

I cannot recommend that game enough. It is quick play, the rules are easy, you can play individually or on teams, and its a gun fight in a bar. I believe it plays up to 6 people. It's also relatively inexpensive to pick up. Whenever we have a git together High Noon comes out.
My only complaint would be that the board is tiny.

If the people are used to playing games I would also recommend Spurs: A Tale in the Old West. It is like Red Dead Redemption the board game. The only issue would be that you COULD play the game with very little player interaction.

By the way I can vouch for
Boomtown
and think it would go over great for what you have in mind. I would recommend using this variant, though:
New bid payout and card selection mechanic

Also, you've gotta have the Man with No Name Trilogy playing in the background (Good Bad & Ugly etc), or at least the soundtracks cool

+1 for Colt Express

Very thematic and easy to play so it should fit in well for your party. Also plays up to 6 which is pretty good. I ended up buying it after playing it for the first time since I think many non-gamers would enjoy it but it is still very fun. Just remember to build the train "board" before the party starts!
