Enter into a good old fashioned standoff with Bang! No one knows for sure where your loyalties lie, so you better shoot the right person, or the outlaws will win!
The card game BANG! recreates an old-fashioned spaghetti western shoot-out, with each player randomly receiving a Character card to determine special abilities, and a secret Role card to determine their goal.
Four different Roles are available, each with a unique victory condition:
- Sheriff - Kill all Outlaws and the Renegade
- Deputy - Protect the Sheriff and kill any Outlaws
- Outlaw - Kill the Sheriff
- Renegade - Be the last person standing
A player's Role is kept secret, except for the Sheriff. Character cards are placed face up on table, and also track strength in addition to special ability.
There are 22 different types of cards in the draw deck. Most common are the BANG! cards, which let you shoot at another player, assuming the target is within range of your current gun. The target player can play a MISSED! card to dodge the shot. Other cards can provide temporary boosts while in play and special one-time effects to help you or hinder your opponents.
The Sheriff and Deputy will win if all outlaws and renegade are dead, Outlaws win when Sheriff is dead, and Renegade must be the last alive with Sheriff and kill him to win the game.
Game time: 20 minutes
