"Shootout: Choose an opposing dude with bullets less than Violet's bounty while Violet is
attempting a job. Ace Violet's Hex to make a pull. If the pull is greater than that dude's value, ace
From rule book online (p. 25)
When the leader is forming a posse for a job, there are sometimes requirements that must be met
in order for you to attempt the job. These requirements are treated as if they are part of the
requirements clause of a play. If you cannot meet the requirements, you cannot attempt the job.
For example, the card Kidnappin’ states, “Your posse must have more total bullets than the
marked dude.” Thus, you have to meet that requirement in order to attempt the job. If you cannot
(or choose not to) make a posse that meets that requirement, you cannot attempt the job as it
would be considered an illegal play, and the job does not occur. This would result in you having
to either create a different legal posse that can attempt the job, choose a different play, or pass.
Attempting a job = the period while the posses are formed and the shootout is happening.
This is a shootout action so it can only happen during the shootout caused by the job.
Any part of an "attacking" posse is attempting. Violet does not need to lead the job.
