What The Lock?: "Starting in 1865, with a Union victory, outlaws began scattering across the western United States. The military had started to corral the Native Americans, such as the Apache tribes, into small and remote reservations.

You've assembled your Outlaw gang and headed into a western Arizona mining town. Your infamous band takes on the bankers and makes a plan to revel in the glory, gold, and riches. Your journey begins as you gallop off into the bright desert sun..." www.whatthelock.com
