Robbers' Roost: 15 New Characters and Updated Page

NOTE: Now that RR has gone through significant revisions, many of these characters have been eliminated. This post is kept here for historical purposes (tracking RR's development) alone. For the characters actually in the RR expansion, go the official page.

Taunt Next Clamton. TauntPorter Rockwell. Taunt Lela Devere. TauntMaddie Silks.
Taunt Julie Bulette. TauntCharleston Heston. Taunt Lilian Smythe. Taunt Rosa Morgan.
Taunt Small Britches. TauntSallie Skull. Taunt Slick Stanhope. Taunt Queen Ann Bassett.
Taunt Lil' Sure Shot. Taunt Jimmer McKay. Taunt Turd Ferguson.

I have added 15 new characters to the unofficial Robbers' Roost expansion and edited some of the abilities of those characters whom I have posted before. All characters that have thus been posted have been added to the Robbers' Roost page. Check out the characters and give me feedback if you get the chance.


  1. Nice work. I wait for the release date impatiently. Good Idea with the orange cards :-) the new weapons... the new green and blue cards

    please start the expansion soon as possible

    good job

  2. Glad to see that at least one person is looking forward to it! While I plan on during a free public release, I also want to see if there is a way that I get interested persons to pool together money to pay for the production costs from a printing company. There would be no money being made; just splitting the costs of production and shipping. I will let you know if I find anything out.

  3. Ahhhh these orange cards sound awesome. My friends and i play all the time and this expansion made us really excited. Pleaseeeee let the expansion be released soon!!! Looking forward to it!

  4. Thanks for the comment, Frederick. I have been working away on the expansion in conjunction with getting character guides done and working on a version of Death Mesa that people can get the printing done through a vendor for them. If you haven't checked Death Mesa out yet, I encourage you to do so. The cards for that expansion and the new translation I did of El Dorado are both available. That should give you something in the meantime!

  5. Hey my friends and I used the death messa expansion. We love it!!!! Just a little bummed that it doesen't work to well in smaller games. We have el dorado, just havent use it yet.

  6. Yeah, I noted that Death Mesa is a pretty pointless expansion for 3-player, and probably not that great in 4-player. But then again, player elimination really isn't that big an issue in smaller games. I might be able to customize some rules for 4-player, though. What made it the most problematic in 4 player--ghosts were too strong? Too weak? I'd love to think of how to make it better in smaller games.

  7. Hey there.

    First of al Tahnk you very much for all the great you are doing here. really excellent work!

    Still I have some Questions...I hope u can help me out here.

    So if I understood this correctly, it will be soon possible to download all the datasheets for the Robbers Roost Expansion like for Death Mesa?!

    And the Version of Wild West show provided by is in Italian? Unfortunately I couldnt really figure it out there.


  8. Right, it will soon be possible to download the datasheets for Robbers' Roost. I already have them ready in fact, but I have been play testing them some before I do a formal release. If you have been following my blog, you will notice I have changed many of the cards already. I updated the Robbers' Roost page a week ago to incorporate those changes. Furthermore, I have been working with a POD to see if there is a way that I could have the Robber's Roost cards printed and cut on demand for interested people. The difficulty will be the cutting; I might need to create some groupon price.

    As for the Wild West show cards on the dvgiochi site, those are the bilingual (Italian/English) cards like usual. You can find the Wild West Show expansion for cheaper here:

  9. What were their abilities ?

  10. Not good! That's why I removed many of them. The current characters with their abilities are now on the official page.
