We tap the beers. You tap the cards. Drafts & Drafts.

Doomtown: Reloaded Learn to Play

Saddle up, partners. We’re riding into Gomorra, better known round these parts as Doomtown. Forget the wild west you’ve been hearing ‘bout, stranger. This here is the Weird West, where magic is real, things really do go bump in the night, and science is a deadly weapon. Here in Doomtown, getting shot is the least of your worries. This place is dangerous, but the rewards will be worth it…if you survive.


Doomtown: Reloaded is a new Expandable Card Game from AEG set in the weird west, equal parts western, horror, and science fiction. Doomtown mixes deck customization, tactical movement, and poker to determine who is the most deserving of Gomorra and its dwindling riches. We will be hosting demos of the game all afternoon on Saturday, October 11th, so come learn to play Doomtown: Reloaded and see if you have what it takes to take Gomorra.
