Each player controls a posse of two cowboys out searching for stolen valuables. The object of the game is to collect the most reward money by retrieving the valuables. When an item is located, it must be returned to the Holdup Scene to collect the reward. If another cowboy is able to catch up with the posse bringing an item to the Holdup Scene, that cowboy may join up and share in the reward. If the game sounds familiar, there is a reason. Milton Bradley essentially repackaged its Hopalong Cassidy game for this venture. The Tales of Wells Fargo Game uses the same 8 metal horses, 12 discs (albeit with lower reward values), and even the same custom spinner.
