My group consisted of the good Colonel himself (in the middle), Sure-shot Sue (one the right), and the mysterious El Hombre. You don't think the Colonel was going to shell out money if he could catch his own for free, do you?
I really liked the card action of Pulp Alley, though until I started throwing out cards the rest of the players really didn't understand what use the cards were.
One thing I had trouble with, was the lack of effectiveness of gunfire. The roping cowboys and the releasing of dinos came about because shooting the other players didn't do much good. At the very end of the game I rode my two best shooters (El Hombre and Sure-Shot Sue) into close range and, even with their great shoot scores and having both shoot at the same person, I couldn't down him. It was the first time the guy running the game had run Pulp Alley, maybe he was telling us how to do shooting wrong? Still it was a great game.
