Blackwater Gulch is a hobby game based on the Wild West.

What is a hobby game? Well, it's not like your average board game, where you crack open the box and there's everything you need. A hobby game is a game that you play, but also build yourself. Your game board can be as big or as small as you want. You can leave your figures unpainted, or paint them up yourself. You can build cool scenery and obstacles for your men to hide behind. There are so many options!

Enemies: Blackwater Gulch is a game for 2 or more players.

A Gang: You and your opponents should have at least 5 models each to start a gang. Check out our Infamous Gangs, grab a starter set, build your figures and you're ready to go!

Measuring Device: Distances such as how far a model can move or shoot are measured in inches. You should have some sort of measuring device like a small tape measure.

Dice: The game uses six-sided dice, and you will only need a handful of them.

Game Board: The game board can be any surface you wish to play on. Any table will do for small games. The board represents a section of forest, desert, small village, town square, or anything else you can imagine. You will add scenery to the board to make it appear more lifelike and give your models obstacles and cover to hide behind.
