“I keep trying to…”
Don't you just hate it when it is gently pointed out to you that unless you are Harry Highbinder, you do NOT control Town Square. So Hamshanks and his posse eat enough lead to poison and then sink a Maze Dragon. What basic/obvious rules of game play do you always, and I mean ALWAYS forget/overlook and end up being totally hosed? Herewith are some examples culled from the Doomtown Facebook group.
I always forget to:
make dudes wanted when shootouts are at private locations.
collect income on the first turn (and pay upkeep).
check for Jake Smiley when counting an opponent’s influence.
apply Lucy Clover’s trait during shootouts.
use It’s Not What You Know… without having 2 ghost rock available.
refill my play hand before drawing my Lowball hand.
the bullets necessary for Kidnappin'.
remember how Kung Fu works and build a deck that fails every pull.
always perform skill checks, since there are ‘only’ 3 cards that fail the check.
go home after a job.
(or better yet, booting when you return home).
I keep trying to:
take control of deeds with Jake Smiley.
use Hamshanks’ ability in town square shootouts.
play Steven Wiles when he is already pushin' up daisies in Boot Hill.
target dudes with Forced Quarantine without reduced stats.
stack a deck with 4 dudes of the same value, and then find that I have a starting dude with that value.
(making 5 dudes with that suit/value).
Point Blank with booted dudes. Or better yet, Point Blank with non-studs.
So what do YOU always forget
