Buffalo Bill Cody endurance reduced from 20 to 15

Barkeep delay reduced from 3 to 1
Barkeep endurance reduced from 20 to 19

Teaching moment:
A player asked how aim is calculated on a brawling attack with a 2H weapon. The main question was: is 2H skill used? The answer to that is no. 1H & 2H skill are only used when shooting. When attacking or throwing the only skill used is BR. So aim is Wielding Factor + BR skill. Although not specifically stated for throws, since they are considered a brawling attack, I use the same method to calculate aim. The difference being a player may Aim a throw, which would add to the final aim. Also, remember, if a weapon is in the proper hand/s box, it MUST be used for the attack.

There was also a question of how to handle a cocked weapon used in a brawling attack. I can find no mention of this in the rules. Therefore, a cocked weapon will stay cocked in this situation.

Turn 4 notes:

Start of turn:
Buffalo Bill Cody draws 3 Fatigue cards for SERIOUS 3: 3 delay, -3 endurance
Border Rider draws 1 Fatigue card for SERIOUS 1: Wild Shot, C45 and R41d fire harmlessly
John Henry draws 1 Fatigue card for SERIOUS 1: 0 delay, -0 endurance

Segment 5:
Axe aim: 5 Bare Hands, +2 BR skill = 7
John Henry takes a HEAD hit:
STUN 1: DROP
DROP: 4 delay
LOSE AIM: no effect
John Henry aim: 0 Aim Makers, +1 card 7, +0 1H skill = 1

KILLED (Oops!!)

End of turn:

Buffalo Bill Cody delay reduced from 8 to 4
Buffalo Bill Cody endurance reduced from 9 to 6
Border Rider delay reduced from 2 to 1
John Henry delay reduced from 8 to 4

Teaching Moments: The Draw & Cock cards can be used to do both actions at the same time. There is no need to play a separate "cock" action.
We also saw a good reason to not carry cocked weapons that you don't intend to fire soon. A WILD SHOT causes all cocked guns you are carrying to fire harmlessly.
John Henry intended a LEG hit. Unfortunately the result card showed CRIT, not BE. It's the luck of the draw. He hit him leg, and likely the femoral artery. The danger of gunplay.

Turn 6 notes:

Start of turn:
Buffalo Bill Cody draws 3 Fatigue cards for SERIOUS 3: 1 delay, -1 endurance
Border Rider draws 1 Fatigue card for SERIOUS 1: 1 delay, -1 endurance
John Henry draws 1 Fatigue card for SERIOUS 1: 2 delay, -2 endurance

Segment 1:
Barkeep draws 2 Delay cards for Drop: 0 delay

Segment 3:
Barkeep gets 2 delay for Advance while Down
Barkeep draws 2 Delay cards for entering bar hex: 0 delay

Segment 4:
Mountain Man aim: 0 Aim Markers, +2 card 6, +0 1H skill = 2/Range: 2, +1 Head = 3

Segment 5:
Andy aim: 2 Aim Markers, +1 card (6) = 3/Range: 2, +1 Head = 3
Andy draws a Hex card to see where the SH50 lands: SAME (HH-K21)
Barkeep Run cancelled: delay

End of turn:
Buffalo Bill Cody delay reduced from 4 to 2
Buffalo Bill Cody endurance reduced from 4 to 3
Border Rider delay reduced from 1 to 0
John Henry delay reduced from 7 to 3
John Henry endurance reduced from 20 to 18
Barkeep delay reduced from 2 to 1

Note: Although Andy's SH50 was cocked, the rules do not say it fires. I know, that doesn't make sense since if it were dropped it would. For now we'll stick with the rules as they are. (Remember there was a question earlier about attacking with a cocked weapon, which the rules also don't cover.) However, I have been discussing this very thing with Tom Cundiff lately (for those that don't know Tom, he is probably the ultimate authority on GSL) and he assures me (being a gun enthusiast as well) that the rule about a gun firing when dropped is not realistic. In future showdowns, that rule will be ignored. We will continue to use it for this showdown.

Also, for planning purposes, Monday is a holiday in the U.S. so the turn 8 deadline will be soft and no reminder will be sent that day.

Next deadline: turn 7 due Friday, May 28 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC

Turn 7 notes:

Border Rider draws 1 Fatigue card for SERIOUS 1: 1 delay, -1 endurance
John Henry draws 1 Fatigue card for SERIOUS 1: 1 delay, -1 endurance

Segment 3:

Andy draws 1 Delay card for entering Mountain Man's hex: 2 delay
Mountain Man draws 1 Delay card for Andy entering his hex: 1 delay
Barkeep draws 2 Delay cards for leaving an obstacle: 2 delay (Note: when card 103 was drawn the deck was reshuffled)
Barkeep gets 2 delay for executing Advance while Down

Segment 5:
Mountain Man aim: 0 Aim Markers, +0 card 7, +3 2H skill = 3/Range: 1, +1 Head = 2
Andy takes an ARM hit (MOVE target status):
STUN 4: 3 delay, -3 endurance
OTHER HAND: no effect
LOSE AIM: no effect
SERIOUS 2: will draw 2 Delay cards at the beginning of each turn
OTHER ARM 6: -6 to aim for OH or BH shots and LOCK or BEAR HUG attacks
Andy Chop cancelled: delay
Barkeep Jab cancelled: delay

End of turn:
Buffalo Bill Cody delay reduced from 6 to 3
Buffalo Bill Cody endurance reduced from 3 to 0
Buffalo Bill Cody more delay than endurance (first turn, he will pass out at the end of next turn)
Mountain Man delay reduced from 1 to 0
Border Rider delay reduced from 1 to 0
Andy delay reduced from 3 to 1
Andy endurance reduced from 25 to 22
John Henry delay reduced from 4 to 2
John Henry endurance reduced from 18 to 17
Barkeep delay reduced from 5 to 2

Note: Another interesting anomoly of the rules showed up this turn. Even though Mountain Man and Andy are in the same hex, since Mountain Man has a Head counter on the board his range MUST be counted from his Head counter. That's why his shot was Range 2 (although it didn't matter in this case), 1 hex from Head to Andy, +1 for Head counter. Also, if Andy had shot/attcked this turn he would have had range 0 since he does not have a head counter on the board.

Since Monday is a U.S. holiday I have decided to skip the Monday turn. Also, the Wednesday and Friday turns will likely be about 2 hours late (around 6pm EDT) however the deadline will still be the same.

Next deadline: turn 7 due Wednesday, June 2 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC
