How to Play Cowboy DND
For generations men in the western United States have enjoyed collecting and enjoying a range of cowboy D&D games. Many of them are based on the great gunfighter stories from the past, but modern day versions are far different. No longer are we being offered re-runs of old morality tales. Now we have exciting new stories that reflect today’s values about family, honor and honesty. In this way, D&D can help your kids develop important life skills while playing a timeless board game.
Cowboy D&D has evolved into an exciting new role playing experience for many generations. It has moved from the early days of good versus evil to good versus evil with gunslingers thrown in. The heroes have come to represent good qualities like bravery and personal integrity. The villains have become those dreaded tyrants we all hope will be put “In The Garbage” at the end of the story.
This great game is for kids of all ages. Young children can enjoy role playing as the cowboys and Indians. While older kids can play as the good guys and protectors of the frontier. They can face off against the bad guys as well as other cowboys and Indians in adventures that bring them across the country and through the long cold winters.
Some of the classic stories have been updated for modern times and given a new interpretation. Parents and kids alike will find that some of the earlier stories just don’t have the same appeal as they do now. For instance, the gunfighter story may not make as much fun if you’ve got a son or daughter who can shoot the bad guy from a distance. The skill has to be honed and practiced, but with the right set of skills this game can be very rewarding.
A modern variation on this theme has been added to the popular My Little Pony D&D game. ponies have taken over the Western Hills and the Deer Valley and the ponies learn to use weapons, horses, and the community to help them defeat the evil Deerkars.
