Gambling fun on a riverboat
13 January 2007 | by growlybear-1See all my reviews

Brisco meets up with on of John Bly's men, Brett Bones (the most gentlemanly outlaw) who controls a town and has a gambling on his riverboat. The reason for being there is to rescue Socrates Poole, who in the spirit of trying new things to experience life gets into debt gambling. Brisco comes up with a plan to capture Brett Bones with the help of Lord Bowler & Dixie Cousins. Brisco comes up with an alias Roscoe Merriweather, this is reminiscent of the old series Maverick. Wylie Turner a cloth manufacturer who also has a beef with Brett Bones joins Brisco and uses his miracle cloth which is as strong as steel but soft as a baby's bottom to raise the money to trap Brett Bones.
