The Weird West. To hear the tales, it’s criss-crossed by trains and filled with ghosts. It was only a matter of time before the two got together in Ghost Train, the newest Deadlands Tall Tales. In addition to the story, new mechanics for this Tall Tale include a second deck of cards and a poker element to really get you in the Deadlands mood!
When a group of outlaws hear of a train coming through Bottleneck Falls loaded with ghost rock and a high-stakes poker floating poker game, it’s a dream come true. But even if you ignore the armed guards, it’s mighty easy for the Weird West to turn a dream into a nightmare, and that worm can turn mighty fast, indeed.
Deadlands Tall Tales is a series of zero-prep, GM-less narrative games set in the Deadlands universe, powered by the Protocol Games Series. Ghost Train joins our previous Tall Tales installments Trail of Darkness, Yukon Terror, Doctor Tregan’s Mechanical Wonders, and Broken Hearts (a free introductory adventure).
