Description Edit | History

Publisher blurb:

Through the gunsmoke and over the slumped corpse of a gambler, beyond the sprawl of grazing buffalo on the high plains, above the din of a saloon in full swing, and farther than the blue sky atop the open range lies the Shattered Frontier of the Aces & Eights game.

A game about the daring adventures and everyday lives of people in the Old West, Aces & Eights lets you tell the tale of the West that could have been, in your own words, deeds and history. The Aces & Eights game allows for rugged cowboys, brave Indians, murderous desperados, determined lawmen, sturdy prospectors, powerful rail barons, and all of the characters we think of when we watch a good western movie or read books about the expansion of the American frontier.

Although you don't need to know much about this time period to enjoy the game, western aficionados will certainly find it engrossing - to say the least. If you consider yourself a western history buff, you might want to set aside what you know and open your mind. Aces & Eights is set in the West That Never Was, an alternative history created to maximize the role-playing potential of the game by freeing the future from the inevitable reality of the true West.

While the setting is firmly entrenched in historical accuracy, a few small changes in American politics (at significant moments in history) create a very believable alternative history of North America. Sprung from small changes are new nations, businesses, and a slight acceleration in arms technology.

Aces & Eights allows you to create a character from scratch, introduce him or her into this detailed frontier setting, and forge a new future like so many of the great pioneers from the past. Your character's potential is limited only by your imagination and your grit.
