The newest Spaghetti Western movie, filmed and directed by you and your friends!

       Law's Out is the newest hit Western film, but no one seems to agree what exactly it's about. Some people say it's about the mysterious stranger who blew into town and toppled the baron's monopoly on coal. Someone mentioned a doctor who had a deal with the devil. I even heard someone say the sheriff shot the preacher. Should be exciting, why not check it out?

      Of course, Law's Out is a fictional movie. Not in the fictional sense of "the events portrayed aren't real." I mean it doesn't exist. It isn't a movie anyone's made, or at least, they haven't made it yet. That's where you and your friends come in. Each of you will take on the role of an actor in the film, and you'll set up plot points, ante your resources for personal gain, and try to weasel your way into a happy ending. Or a tragic ending, if that's more interesting. It very well could be!

      This book is a rulebook for playing as the actors of the fictional film Law's Out, directed and acted out by you and your friends. In the game, you will auction off everything you have for control of the story, and the player who puts the most on the line will seize more control over the story than anyone else.

      Law's Out only needs a pencil and some note cards to play, although it is helpful to have a printer as well, so you can print off everyone's Role cards. Law's Out is suitable for 3-8 players, and a typical game will last 2-4 hours.

Law's Out is fantastically designed, fast paced, and fun. The game is only 21 pages (and a large chunk of that is character Roles), but with those 21 pages, author Jacob Randolph delivers probably the best Western game I have ever played. The ga [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
