What is BANG! about?
The man with the pistol is a dead man when faced with the man with the Winchester unless his pistol is a Volcanic!
Sheriffs hunt outlaws, outlaws hunt sheriffs, and Renegades are ready to join either side. Who are the gunmen who are Deputies willing to give their lives for the Sheriff? Where are the merciless outlaws seeking his death?
Character cards within the game include a sheriff, deputy, outlaw, and renegade, most of whom want to shoot (bang) each other.
A player’s turn involves playing a variety of cards, such as beer (gaining a life), bang (shooting someone), missed (avoiding getting shot), guns (shooting other players), and many others.
There are many name cards that give special skills such as pick a heart and don’t get shot. Instead of using the place mats, the cards can be used as life trackers.
It takes a little while to learn but soon gets easier.
