So I thought that the ZimP concept would do well with an old west retheme... I could call it Cowboy in my Pocket (GimP - Gunslinger in my pocket??) But I settled on Wimp.

Not much to show now, but hopefully in a couple days once I playtest it a bit :D

Basic idea is you're the sherrif in a lawless town. There's a group of bandits holed up in an abandoned mine, and they're fixin' to rob the inbound train at High Noon. You need to find some dynamite and blow up the hideout with the bandits in it before noon.
=================
I've been drawing up some new tiles to replace the old ones and added a couple of new locations, so there are 20 total tiles. (10 Town, 10 Country). They're split up in the photo below.

I hope to get these scanned and touched up to be available soon.

A preview of the new PocketMod and Logo is shown as well.

Re: Yet another variant WIP - WimP - Western in my Pocket
Great idea! I was brainstorming on something similar, and finally determined I just wasn't creative enough to pull it off. I was thinking along the terms of a "Man with no name" having to square off with gunmen in town, but couldn't come up with a good goal. The dynamite (totem) and hideout sounds perfect. Shoot me a GM if you need some ideas or help.

Ah, great minds think alike!

I've been juggling with a similar idea while working on the commercial version of Airborne in my Pocket, and I'm glad to see our ideas are different. I'll be very curious to see what you come up with. And keep "Western in my Pocket" as a title, since mine will be called "Cowboy in my Pocket"

Re: Yet another variant WIP - WimP - Western in my Pocket
Cool, thanks for the input :D

I've played Airborne on Vassal, and it's cool! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

I thought of Cowboy in my Pocket after I thought of Western in my Pocket, but WimP was just too cool an acronym to pass up :D

Would I post a playest session for it here or in the "Sessions" forum I wonder...

Great, now I'm considering designing games with other cool acronyms like "LIMP", "GIMP", "CHIMP" and "PIMP"...

Re: Yet another variant WIP - WimP - Western in my Pocket
lol

I thought of Gunslinger in my Pocket (GimP), PimP would be interesting... (Adult themed... Porno in my Pocket?) Too many ideas!!!

I really need to get back to my Solitaire 2012 design as well... lol

Too many distractions

Re: Yet another variant WIP - WimP - Western in my Pocket - V0.1 Available
Ver 0.1 is out. The tiles suck, but they're mainly for playtesting purposes. I've already got some ideas to spruce them up :D I plan on turning one of the Country tiles into a cemetary. Zombie cowboys anyone? :P

- Rules in Pocketmod format - Shamelessly edited from the original by Kwanchai Moriya

- Tiles - V0.1 - They're very basic and somewhat craptastic, but I'm already planning out the next version. Just wanted to get a Playtest version out there.

- Dev Cards - Once again, very basic.

Feedback and rules revisions/suggestions welcomed!

Clearly, the money acronym here would be Prostitute in my Pocket.

I like it. Not sure when I'll have a chance to play it, but I'll check it out.

Looking forward to your reviews Jeremiah.

In the meantime, a preview of Ver 0.2 is in the first post.

The Train Station and Platform are the jump off for the first planned expansion... Iron Horse.

I've also submitted the game for its own entry in the DB. I've got a scenario book available (need to increase the font size before posting), and at least 1 expansion is in progress as well. Thought I'd give WimP its own space :D
