This game is easy to learn and fun to play!
Lauren
This game is fun, it's different every time, and has enough spaz to throw off a good strategy and keep those ahead on their toes.

My college friends and I play this game, my family and I play this game.

This game is really simple to learn to play and doesn't require much thought during play. Games can always be pretty quick compared to games with more elaborate board setups like Settlers of Catan. The fun is in the subterfuge in trying to figure out who's on your team and who's trying to kill you off while everyone is scheming to win. And of course... there's something to be said for juvenile humor as players try to "Bang!" each other to death. The cards all have Italian as well as English on them - I think a nod to spaghetti westerns, of which some were filmed in Italy.

My only complaint with this version of the game doesn't have as many cards as I would like. I would have gotten the "bullet" version of the game (up to 8 players) where the game comes in a big bullet shaped container if I had known better.

Here in the Midwest, there's a game we play called Mafia. In this game the players become part of a town where a few unsavory characters (the mafia) exist. Throughout the game, the mafia try to knock off all others (to win), while the townspeople, the sheriff and a nurse attempt to root out the mafia and save their town. Bang! takes Mafia, this game I grew up loving, to a wholly new level.

In this basic set, one can play with up to 7 people (although I recommend 5 as the ideal number), and regardless of playing with 3 or 6, the game is still a lot of fun. It's fast-paced and entertaining and makes you strategize time and again as the game progresses.

Additionally, and here's one huge drawing point for me, it's a very simple game -- both in pieces and rules. The game consists of cards, playing boards and bullets (to keep track of life), so it's a very travel-worthy game. Additionally, during a recent time with my family, I taught the game to my youngest brothers (aged 6 and 8) who readily learned the game and consequently played with a cutthroat edge I had hardly expected.

Bang! appeals to all, and it's catchy enough that you'd play it over and over.

For a quick rundown of how the game functions, please read on:

As I said earlier, Bang! consists of a deck of cards, playing boards and bullets. The bullets simply keep track of health, and the playing boards show where all the cards and bullets lay. One could easily play without either of those items, although a certain dramatic flair would be lost.

Coming to the cards, there are four kinds of cards used (I'm using generic names, by the way):

1. Role cards- these determine your objective for winning (or losing) the game.

Bang is a really fun game that appeals to people that like both card games and board games. Plenty of strategy, bluffing, and fun to keep everyone interested. You really only need the cards to play, and the bullet pieces have never left the box on my game. It combines a little role-playing, poker, and Uno into one fun game. You are assigned a character with special abilities as well as a role (Sheriff, Deputy, Outlaw, or Renegade). The other players only know your character, not your role. If you have really young kids or are particularly sensitive to violence, then the gun-play basis of the game is probly a deal killer, but otherwise it is that cartoon style of violence that will not scar anyone's psyche. If you are old enough to remember the spaghetti westerns, then you will appreciate a bit more of the humor of the dialogue and instructions. Game play time can vary, but about an hour is a good average. While the rules seem a bit complex at first, the instructions are well written and quickly become clear and easy to remember. Great for family or friends game night.

Late one night at a party, some friends pulled this out and roped me in nigh unawares... and, by luck of the draw, I ended up the Sheriff (center of attention, with most people out to get me). Even under those circumstances, I did very well and enjoyed the game immensely.

The rules are very simple and elegant, being almost entirely explained on the cards you as you play them - however, the strategy / deduction / bluffing heart of the game is as complex as you want it to be.

If your group of friends is looking to spend 30-45 min enjoyably shooting eachother, dodging behind barrels and the like (and nobody is going to be offended by being 'sold out') then this should be very successful (and may even open the door to other games along the same lines). While I haven't tried it mixed-age, there's absolutely no reason why it couldn't be.

The game is playable enjoyably at 4 people, but I think realizes its true potential at 6-7.

Durability: Basically just well made playing cards with nicely atmospheric "spaghetti western" art... they should last you as long as you like, provided you don't abuse them. The "bullet" life counters and play mat are cute, but in theory they could get lost. They do come with their own included bag (a nice touch), and aren't necessary by any means. You can take this traveling with you easily.

Bang is a competitive game of diplomacy that works well in large groups of people and has a lot to offer to the casual gaming community. If you've ever played a game of Mafia, you may have quite a bit of intuitive understanding of the underlying concepts of this game. Bang is like a souped-up Mafia game, complete with guns and beer. There are four types of citizens in a Bang game: the Sheriff, the Deputy Sheriff, the Outlaw, and the Renegade. At the beginning of the game, each played is dealt a role that they will maintain throughout the game. It is important to keep your identity sealed, because there are always people who are out to kill you.

As in any diplomacy game, it is very important for people to think the right things about you. If you are the Sheriff, for example, you do not want the Outlaw to know that. His mission for the game is to take out both the sheriff and the deputy sheriff and rule in a world of crime and unaccountability. The trick is balancing your concealed identity while still accomplishing your mission--taking shots at the outlaw before he can kill you!

One aspect of this game I found intriguing was the amount of different cards, each with their own function. The beer card, for example, allows you to gain an extra life, which is pretty cool. There are all kinds of weapons, and here's the catch: each weapon has a designated range, so you may not even be able to shoot the person you're supposed to kill. It makes for a very suspenseful game, trying to figure out each player's role. There are often twists and surprises, like the time my friend, the sheriff, killed his helper, the Deputy Sheriff--oops! I would recommend Bang as a good party game with a focused audience or among family members. Be prepared to take cover for you life!
