The characters are deployed. It appears the Veteran is not long for the world, but it will still be 2 against 1.

Turn 1 Notes:

Segment 2:
JWH aim: 0 Aim Markers, +1 card 5, +0 2H skill, +1 shotgun bonus = 2 (Firing both barrels)
And the Veteran is still alive!

Segment 3:
JWH drops the now unloaded R10 into hex B-R7

Segment 4:
JWH's second B2 play was unnecessary as a "Draw & Cock" card does both.

Segment 5:
Yankee draws 2 Delay for crossing a bank hexside. Total delay: 0

Next deadline: turn 2 due Wednesday, September 23 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC

Turn 3 Notes:

Segment 3:
The Yankee drops his C45 as he moves his SD58 to Both Hands

Segment 5:
The Veteran's Aim: +2 Aim Markers, +0 1H skill, +1 card 7 = 3
JWH's Aim: +0 Aim Markers, +3 1H skill, +1 card (B2) = 4
John Henry draws 8 Wound cards for a HEAD hit and 3 Delay cards for the DROP penalty, Total Delay:20, Total End:18
(The delay markers only go up to 8, hence the two markers for John Henry)

End of turn:
John Henry Delay reduced from 20 to 10. (He won't do anything for the next two turns as he will still have 5 delay at the end of next turn)
As he lifts his SD58 up and aims at JWH, the Yankee calls out, "Drop your weapon and put your hands in the air or I swear to gawd I'll kill ya!!"

Next deadline: turn 4 due Monday, September 28 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC

Turn 4 Notes:

Segment 4:
The Yankee Aim: +4 Aim Markers, +0 2H skill, +1 card 6 = 5/Range: 5 hexes /3 (SD58) = 1
JWH takes a VITAL hit (BE reduced to VITAL by MOVE target status)

End of turn:
The Yankee screams "Curse you soul to damn Hell John Hardin!!" and then fires the fatal shot.
The Yankee and the Veteran tend to John Henry's wound and he survives.

Final Points:
The Yankee: +2 Survive, +2 Hold the Field, +2 Kill Enemy = 6
The Veteran: +2 Survive, +2 Hold the Field = 4
John Henry: +2 Survive, +2 Hold the Field = 4
John Wesley Hardin: +3 Given, -8 Killed = -5

Well, that was quick!

I'm ready to start another so, let me know who would like to play and what showdown you might like. The only one I would suggest is 26 but I think it really needs 7 players.
