1) Naming your own characters. Who wouldn't want Batman or Mr.T leading your wagon train?
2) Hunting for Food. Gun down as many animals as possible, even though you can only carry 100 lbs of meat.
3)FORD THE RIVER!!! No matter how shallow or deep, you always ford! The main purpose was to see how many in your party you could kill off and how much supplies you could loose. That's when shit got interesting. It became a survival game.
We open in Independence, Mo...
