Any questions you may have about how DMH works, and for what the future holds for Dead Man's Hand.

The Buffalo gun

Both the Buffalo gun and the Musket are single shot weapons that give an auto-fail to the Nerve test to give an extra wound.
Therefore 1 wound = 2 wounds. But only if you fail a nerve test.
As their main opponents are the Undead who have no Nerve test stat, what is the point of this rule?
Is the intention an auto fail like the "Yellow belly" card?

Presumably the musket and buffalo gun are useful against other gangs, not just the Undead?
The undead never take nerve tests, but my guess it that these weapons cause 2 hits against them (if you roll hit + nerve test); they don't make the undead take a nerve test - they make them fail one :-)
