A Widowmaker Jones Western
Card player extraordinaire Poker Alice knows when hold �em, when to fold �em, and when to team up with master gunman Newt "Widowmaker" Jones. She's betting on Jones to protect her - and her money - on a treasure hunt in the California desert. Legend has it that a shipwreck is buried in the Salton sands. Some say it's a Spanish galleon that got stuck when the sea ran dry. Others say it's a Chinese junk full of pearls or a Viking ship filled with Aztec treasure. Either way, a lot of mean and violent folks would kill to find it. Which is why Poker Annie needs the Widowmaker. In this game, it's winner takes all. Losers die.
