Hey folks, had a couple things I wanted some feedback on.

We've found that Tuco and Django are a bit meh compared to the other 5. We were thinking of doing a house rule as follows:

Tuco: Can shoot on a diagonal as well as up and down
Django: When knocking someone back after a shot, the character drops a loot

Other question, playing the Marshal seems a little complicated and you lose out on the fun of moving the Marshal. How are people liking the newest expansion?

Those house rules seem drastic, but, hey, if it works for you and your group, go for it.

Playing the Marshall isn't complicated at all other than putting a bit more thought into how you spend your bullets than a bandit would and that it can be really tough to pull off 4 of your goals as required. It's so so so much fun though, both as the Marshall and as the bandits vs the Marshall (punching the Marshall is extraordinarily gratifying, especially when it leads to a different bandit getting arrested).

I love the expansion(s) to pieces. They have completed the game for me. Can't recommend it enough.

And when, exactly, are we playing Churchill again?

I have my doubts I would ever play Colt Express again without the Marshal&Prisoners expansion: yes, it's that good!

I actually disagree with Django being meh... he's one of my favorites. I use him to disrupt everyone's else's plans from a distance. It motivates me to shoot more.

Now, Tuco, should actually have someone drop loot only if he shoots them through the ceiling.
