Description Edit | History

Cover art: A band of heroic cowboys flees from Irish Mexican bandits while trying to protect their precious cargo of Dr. Brown's soda. Using the bottles as weapons against the villains doesn't seem to be doing much good in this scene from "Dr. Brown's Miracle Juice," this issue's featured module. Art by Valerie Valusek. (from the contents page)

This issue featured Dr. Brown's Miracle Juice by Michael Selinker - It gets pretty hot in Missouri during the summertime, and a big sip of Dr. Brown's soda goes a long way to cool off the populace. The problem is, where's the soda? This was used as the BOOT HILL® game tournament at the 1987 GEN CON Game Fair.
There was a full-page piece of artwork, "Mother's Pride" on the inside back mailer cover, and 2 cartoons by Jefferson Hankla on the outside back mailer cover.
