The game is an old Western Card game, which strangely, for a reason I have yet to determine, is written in Italian (don't worry, there are also English captions underneath the Italian). It plays best in medium-large groups, ideally 5-7 people, but we've played with groups as large as 12 before. Upon setup, each player is secretly assigned one of 4 roles: the Sheriff, an Outlaw, a Deputy, or a Renegade, and each player's objective in the game depends on the role they have been assigned:
- Sheriff is trying to kill the Outlaws and Renegades
- The Outlaws are trying to kill the Sheriff
- The Deputies are trying to protect the Sheriff
- The Renegades are trying to be the last one standing with the Sheriff, and then kill him one vs one.
The only person who's role is known is the Sheriff, who reveals it at the beginning of the game. As the game progresses, you try to figure out who is who around you, and use weapons, various ability cards, and other items to try to accomplish your objective.
The game ends with either the Sheriff dies, or the Outlaws are all killed.
If any of that sounds confusing, don't worry, once you play the game once or twice it becomes second nature.
- Tons of fun. This has become our go-to game over the past month. People will literally text me during the day while I am at work asking when the next time we are going to "BANG" (their words, not mine).
- Speaking of which, lots of potential for innuendos and "thats what she said" jokes.
- This particular packaging includes A LOT- the original game, the first expansion (High Noon), the second expansion (Dodge City), and the third expansion (A Fistful of Cards).
- Comes in a cool metal bullet-shaped case.
- Can be a little complicated for newbies, especially with the expansion packs (you have the option to play without them, however)
- Games can take quite a while, depending on the size and experience level of the group. I've had games of 8+ take over 2 hours. However, on the flip side, I've had games end in under 30 minutes.
- It is an elimination game, which means that when someone is killed, they have to sit and watch until the game is over (with the exception of a few cards in the expansions which can bring dead players back to life). Can be frustrating for people if you have a large group and they die early in the game as this means they will be sitting and watching for a good 30 minutes or longer.
All in all, this is definitely money worth spending.
I would definitely recommend this to a friend (and have).
Each player is given a role. You are either the good guys, the bad guys, or the renegade. No one tells anyone else what their role is, except for the Sheriff. The Sheriff shows everyone his card. From there, madness ensues. The bad guys try to kill the Sheriff, the good guys try and kill the bad guys, and the renegade adds to the confusion, by playing either side, or trying to balance the fight.
The expansions are decent, and allow more people to play. The base game is for up to 7 players, but the expansion makes it 8. They add more cards and a little more strategy to the game. That being said, I think you will be perfectly happy with the base game. Finding people that understand the rules enough to play the base game alone is hard enough, finding 8 people with a good enough understanding of the rules to add an expansion or two on top can be difficult.
Speaking of the rules, they are crazy. The game was originally Italian, and the translation to English was a little rough. Every other game a rule question comes up that isn't covered in the manual. Luckily there is a good community online, and I've found that any time I have a question I can just google it and get the answer. There is a lot of strategy to the game, and especially a lot of cases that a good player can use the rules to their advantage.
Overall, this game is a blast and great for any good sized group of people (5+ players). Under 5 people can be a little boring because it only takes a round to figure out who is who. My only gripe with the game is that once you're dead, you're dead. I've killed people on the first turn, and then had the game go on 45 minutes after that. It can get a little boring for the players that die early on. This was fixed in "Samurai Sword", which is basically Bang! but with a Japanese Samurai theme.
I'm knocking one star off because there are definitely some areas of improvement. The instruction manual should include more information about edge cases. There have been many times where we run into a spot in the game that we don't know how to handle. We usually come to a mutual agreement, but it would be easier if the instructions included explanations. The packaging could also be improved. A better designed interior to support holding more expansions would be great. I don't even store the cards in the bullet any more. I put them in ziplock baggies.
Overall, it's a fun game. My family and friends have been asking where to purchase this. I was eager to point them to Amazon.
