BANG! recreates an old-fashioned spaghetti western shoot-out. The game is based on bluff and deduction, with each player randomly receiving a character card to determine special abilities, and a secret role card to determine their goal. The Outlaws hunt the Sheriff, the Sheriff hunts the Outlaws, and the Renegade plots in secret, ready to join one side or the other. This game has had a huge success all over the world selling almost a million copies and winning some very important awards.
For ages 8 and up.

Me and all my friends absolutely love this game! Great for mid to large groups of friends!
TRULY enjoyed this game. Different for sure. I played with people who played before and were able to explain each card. the cards do have pictures on the bottom that will tell you what to do. Fun Fun Fun
Just played this game at work, and all I can say is WOW. Interesting concept, great gameplay (and varied too), and involves a surprising amount of tactics and skill. The sheriff and the only character known in the game, all others are secret, allowing the deputy to help without him/her knowing, or the renegade to eliminate everyone, or the outlaws to kill everyone. After I lost, I took a look at each others cards, and you could tell, in retrospect, how they were playing by their role. Cons : The cards are italian(?) but have english translations. Some arent very good though and sometimes, the game cards are not very clear as to what they expect you to do. You have to do a LOT of prep reading and it might involve revealing your cards, just because you dont know what they mean, and need clarification. After about 30 mins or so, all 5 of us were able to sit down and get the turns flowing smoothly, but it may not be the same for everyone. Id say the average group of people itll take about 30mins-1hr to get the game flowing. Very fun though! Just reserved my copy and picking one up today. Great party game.
