North Star Games sets bounty for Most Wanted

North Star Games previously announced Most Wanted, a poker and western-themed card game.  Now, North Star has provided an October 1st release date for the game.

In Most Wanted, the players are bandits competing to be the most notorious outlaw.   Players acquire notoriety (points) by participating in actions, like robberies or challenging fellow bandits to duels, then simplified poker hands are used to resolve the actions.   Those players that lose a particular action must pay bail, which means they forgo some of their points.  First player to 13 points wins.

Two of the designers of Most Wanted are Ken Gruhl and Quentin Weir, which designed another North Star game, Happy Salmon.

Most Wanted is for two to eight players, ages 10 and up.  You can read the original announcement here and view the updated product page and release date information here.
