An introductory Sloane Deck with 2x Base Set. The four decks in this series can all be built at the same time, excluding the jokers (you'll have 4x jokers from two Base Sets, so you can switch them in to whichever two decks you're playing with).
Your main shooting values are 3, 5 and 7.
Your plan is to boot Allie Hensman and your other dudes in Town Square (using The Sloane Gang) to get the control points your need to take over the town. Remember that control points generated from your home are added to your dude after victory is checked.
Expanding your collection
Faith & Fear (PB): several of your Base Set Sloane dudes (Fred Aims, Silas Aims, Marion Seville and Jonah Essex) get better once they have bounty on them, but it can be hard to generate Bounty unless you draw Kidnappin’. This expansion gives you a new home (Desolation Row) that lets you run a job that generates bounty and ghost rock if you succeed, allowing you to rob the town and get rich while doing so! If you’re using Allie Hensman from the base set you can keep using her to generate control points in the town square, then have her join the job (booted dudes can join jobs at their location) so she can come home safely with the rest of your dudes if the job succeeds rather than being vulnerable in town square. Even better, this set adds Makaio Kaleo, Esq., a crafty lawyer dude who can redistribute one bounty per turn between your dudes so you can make sure the dudes who work better when there's a price on their head are the ones wanted by the law. Outlaw Mask is handy too – it increases your dude’s influence by their bounty when they are in the town square.
Election Day Slaughter (SB): this adds Milt Clemons, who works well with the Desolation Row and Makaio that were outlined above. He’s a two stud with one influence who might seem pricey at six ghost rock with 1 upkeep, but he generates 1GR each time he gets a bounty. If you’re running Kidnappin’/using Desolation Row/move bounties on to him with your lawyer you can make lots of ghost rock to fuel your life of crime.
