Hi villager,

I just went through your tutorial on how to play Colt Express because I have never played the game before. Thank you for making it!

My only question after finishing the tutorial is regarding the Punch action. When a bandit gets punched, is it randomly determined which piece of loot that the bandit drops? Specifically, in the tutorial when Cheyenne punched me (Tuco), it was not clear why I dropped a $250 money bag instead of my $500 jewel.

I just looked at the rulebook:
The targeted Bandit loses a Loot token if he has one: choose a Loot token from his Character card and place it on the floor where your Bandit pawn is located. If you choose a Purse token, you are not allowed to look at its value.
My suggestion would be change the tutorial text like so (my changes are in bold):
A punched bandit also loses a Loot token (money bag / jewel / strongbox) of your choice which is dropped on the floor of the car. If you choose a money bag token, you are not allowed to look at its value. And then they go reeling backwards / forwards to an adjacent car of your choice.

You also dropped your $250 money bag that she promptly stole and added to her stash! She did not choose for you to drop your $500 jewel because her special ability only works on money bag tokens; she would not have been able to immediately steal the jewel.

As I was looking through the tutorial again for the purpose of writing this post, I noticed a few small typos:

If she was on the roof of the car, she could have run across up to 3 cars!

Turn 2 has now started, and it's back to the starting player, Ghost.
