Setting: Western / Old West

Group Description

A western, also known as dusters, is a style popularized in pulp novels and motion picture serials.

Westerns as a game style are generally associated with cowboys and take place in the Old West (the western half of the continental United States of America). Many common themes involve the European colonization of America (roughly the 16th to late 19th centuries) and the frontier towns established or simply a depiction of vastness out on the range away from civilization and urbanization.

Limitations
  • For the purposes of this game group, there is an emphasis is on traditional, meaning that it must be a true western without any genre-blending. For example, Wild Wild West and Wild Guns do not qualify, because of their alternate-universe and sci-fi elements, respectively. These have a separate group: Non-traditional Westerns.
