Has anyone experimented with expanding the dynamite range? We played with it for the first time last night and everyone at the table seemed to think that one bullet width was awful small. We were thinking like two movement discs would make more sense (and be more accurate).

we've always played it's the distance of a disc from the Dynamite. Otherwise it's pretty useless.

I made my own round template and it is at least 2 large discs wide, maybe 3 on every side--otherwise, no one hits anything with it.

I cut out the center (which is the size of the dynamite) and place it over the place where the dynamite lands:

Thanks guys, glad I'm not the only one who thought it was pretty much pointless as is.

A bullet width?

We've always played it as written:

"At the end of the dynamite’s movement, it explodes, inflicting damage to any cowboy, object, or building within the blast range of the dynamite (the width one movement disc).

Works fine that way. Dynamite should be hard to use effectively outdoors, where cowpokes could be thought to be abstractly "diving for cover".

IMHO .... The REAL place that dynamite shines, is when it's tossed into a building.
