Saddle up, varmint! Friendship Club's first major feature update is here! Get bar brawlin' in a totally destructible new arena "The Wonky Wagon", rootin'-tootin' in an updated "Quick Draw" Standoff mode, or, well, simply bear witness to all of the commotion from afar.

Rather than waffle on about how freakin' great it is, we've created a trailer, some GIFs, and revamped the Greenlight page. Please share this around, as for the next two weeks we'll be doing a big marketing push.
