  • Venue: West Retford Hotel, Retford, Nottinghamshire

Come on out to the Wild West! Find fortune and fame on the frontier! Join the folk of Tombstone seeking silver in the hills, ranching on the plains, or carousing in the saloons. Play in the big poker tournament thatís attracting gamblers and visitors from all over the country. But remember, Tombstone's a rowdy town where gunslingers mix with honest citizens and civilised society is a long way back East. If you're looking for adventure, you've come to the right place. Become a legendary hero or a notorious outlaw. Stake your claim for a place in history.

Once Upon a Time in Tombstone is a freeform roleplaying game set in Tombstone, Arizona in 1881. Players assume the roles of Tombstone locals and visitors and experience some of the excitement and romance of life in the old West! Once Upon A Time in Tombstone is based on Hollywood westerns past and present. The films that inspired us include (the links take you to the entries in the Internet Movie Database):

But don't stop there - watch and read all the westerns you want for your own inspiration!
