These interactive Westerns were published as large-format paperbacks. Both adventures share a basic game system in which the reader keeps track of money and points and uses dice to determine the success or failure of risky actions. During the course of each adventure, "bonus dice" can be accumulated which allow rolls to be strategically influenced at critical moments. The second book also includes optional rules to make the system more complex by introducing eight character aptitudes (Intelligence, Detection, Agility, Strength, Toughness, Luck, Persuasion and Speed) and seven skills (Gunfighting, Quick Draw, Sneaking, Brawling, Survival, Tracking and Horsemanship). Both books were carefully researched and include numerous historical footnotes to supplement the action.
