The rearing of longhorn cattle from northern Mexico is booming. It has now become a major source of income for the Texan farmers and at the same time has attracted cattle thieves of all kinds. The players assume the roles of two particularly feared outlaws: eagle Perkins and Jessie artist Byrd. The aim of the game is simple: to steal cattle (and a few gold nuggets if possible) to see who can amass the most money by the end of the game. Or to get your opponent arrested by the sheriff!
