Bandits! Bluffing! Gunslingers! Nuns with bad habits!
Most Wanted is a western-themed game where fellow bandits compete to become the most notorious outlaw of the land. Playing the best hand - or bluffing with the worst – could mean the difference between a successful train robbery or time spent in the slammer. Players can repent at church to make a new start, or even work some honest labor (gasp!) for bail money. Be the first player to 13 points and claim the dubious honor of being the MOST WANTED. Go get 'em, partner!
Most Wanted is a poker-style game that will get your friends bluffing, cheering, and talking in accents. On your turn, choose one of six possible actions: There are three robberies that anyone can participate in, two actions that further your position by replenishing cards or money, and one action where you challenge another gunslinger to a high-card duel. The only way to get points is to take a risk with a robbery (and the penalty for failing is small), so don't be shy… the next heist could be your lucky break!
Three alternate "night-time" actions are included on the backside of the action cards to spice up gameplay. Honest Labor turns into Dishonest Labor, Church turns into Saloon, and Duel turns into a good ol' fashion Shootout (the more the merrier)!
