Looks good Giles. We’ll have to have a game of this some time :)

I’m in the process of making up arrow supply markers myself, but using a few spares from my gabillion of teeny tiny dice from my mahoosive Wizkids ‘Pirates of the <XYZ>’ collectable card game collection lol

Excellent write-up and I love those cards. Funnily enough there’s some very similar arrow counters on my workbench at the moment ;)

Lovely looking game, I agree about the nuances that fall out of the rules, there is plenty here to entertain for the evening. Two exploding guns - what are the chances of that!, a great moment though. I like the arrow supply base and I will adopt that idea.

Yes, it looks grand.  I'm intending to use those dial things too.
