With the Launch of Doomtown Reloaded just around the corner, interest in "Classic" Deadlands: Doomtown is at the highest it has been since the game fell back in 2002.
As we have been since 2011, Doomtown.Info is here to give you a glimpse of the past, present, and future of the Classic version of the game. What started as an archive of things from lost websites and forums grew into the home for HEG (a now retired group that made new and interesting cards and formats.)
Even though David Orange and I (Tim J. Meyer) are the curators of Doomtown.Info AND part of the Doomtown: Reloaded team, this site focuses on Classic Doomtown. Not Reloaded.
So, the completionists out there, and those of you who just like fun stuff were begging for more of the toss-ins I sent with the Saints and Sinners sets.
I MIGHT have a few say 30-50 of them left floating around my apartment.
Since HEG and my work on Doomtown fan works has always been about community and participation, I decided that there would be a raffle for them!
I can tell you are excited. I can hear it in your scrolling. "But, Tim, however can I gain entry in this amazing raffle?"
Well there are several ways! 3 free ways, and 3 ways that will cost you at least a few bucks total. There will also be a few trivia questions that can be answered over the course of the next couple weeks. There are also some bonuses for those who go above and beyond.
The cut off for completing entries is September 1st, and all entry emails MUST be received by September 5th.
