Product Description

There are two types of actors in this world. There are those who act because they can, and those who do it because they can do nothing else. You're the third kind: you act in spite of the fact that you can't. The world's worst variety of hack, talentless yet illogically persistent.

And you seem to live at Deadwood Studios, a Western-a-Week schlock movie house with no illusions about their role in the business. Budget, Script, Quality, and Originality. Who needs 'em? Deadwooders can make movies day and night. It's the perfect place to do that thing you call "work."

Game Synopsis: Players use 6-sided dice to represent themselves, starting as "2's" and trying to earn enough credit to upgrade to "6's," to get the best-paying roles. Upgrading is just a means to an end, however. The actual object of the game is to make the most money, and it's not unheard of for hardworking actors to just stay at 2 (or even 1) and get enough paying work to win. However your career evolves, Deadwood is quick-playing and hilarious. Where else can you play Man on Fire, Woman in Black Dress, and Falls Off Roof in the same afternoon?
