This illustrated playing card deck is part of U.S. Games Systems’ popular "Old West" series of card games. This fact-filled deck features 13 different Lawmen (individuals and groups): The Oklahoma Guardsmen; John Slaughter; Charlie Siringo; Dallas Stoudenmire; Tom Rynning: Elfego Baca; Sam Six Killer; Bass Reeves; Tom Smith; Pat Garrett; Wild Bill Hickok; The Masterson Brothers; and The Earp Brothers (Morgan, Virgil, and Wyatt Earp).
For each Outlaw, there are four cards (a book) with biographical information and historical facts. There are also instructions for playing an Authors-style card game, wherein players collect cards to complete four-card books by calling for cards from other players. The player with the most books wins. This 52-card deck is also suitable for many other traditional card games.
Other decks in the Old West series: Indian Chiefs of the Old West, Outlaws of the Old West, and Frontiersman of the Old West. Also available in a 12-deck display.
