E is for Earp

I know the real Wyatt Earp wasn't anything like the yarns folks have spun about him and quite frankly, I don't care. A good story is a good story. As long as you acknowledge that it's made up, it's okay. 

If you can't tell from the picture accompanying this post, Tombstone is my favourite version of Earp. Heck it's my favourite western (along with another amazing Kurt Russell western, Bone Tomahawk). 

If you want to add Tombstone's lawman to your game, here are Six-Shooter & Wagons stats for the marshal.

  1. This is indeed one of the better western movies out there.
