Deadwood 1876 is a game published by Facade Games, and it’s now on Kickstarter.

Designed by Travis Hancock, this social deduction game casts players as bandits who are looking to steal all the gold from safes all over Deadwood, South Dakota. Players work in teams to find and collect gold, but with an added twist. Whichever team collects the most gold will then have to fight each other to see who individually comes out on top. Thus, you can spend time helping your team find gold or you can spend some time preparing for that final shootout if you happen to be on the winning team.

The game comes with three laser-cut wooden platforms that serve as the three locations, along with 79 cards, special tokens and custom-made dice, and a magnetically-closing faux book box with space for sleeved cards.

Some stretch goals include additional safes to be shuffled into the deck, as well as enhanced cards and a new optional rule added to the game.

This project is scheduled to fund on March 22, 2018.
