A game of Space Cowboys is your cowboys retelling a Tale of adventure and independence. With each player having made a Cowboy, a Tale sheet tells you what sort of Trouble will occur during the tale, whether Space Clowns in disguise or fireworks displays as you try to land in town, and a Pinochle card deck represents those Troubles as they occur. Lastly you need some dice to see how you dealt with the Troubles
Game play requires a Pinochle pack of French playing cards and some three-sided dice (d6 or dF can be substituted). An earlier version of this game was submitted to the Little Game Chef 2010 competition.
