About this deal

The biggest problem I have with Bang: The Dice Game is that if I have five or more players ready to throw down for a game, I’m almost certainly going to pick something else. Players are then randomly given a Character card (16 different characters) which determines how many life points and which special ability they’ll have. system is very good about that in general (including its sister game, Samurai Sword), and it really shines in this short game. If a player collects a trio of Gatling symbols on the dice, he fires one shot at everyone else and rids himself of Indian tokens.

Character cards provide full text and annotation, and bullets (health points) only come in three and one flavours, with icons showing which is which. The counterpoint is that it’s very difficult for players to do this with the kind of insinuating insistence you’ll see in other games. Firstly there needs to be an active bluff, wherein players are encouraged to openly lie to others about their true identity. While not without some problems, the game is loads of fun and filled with great Old West atmosphere.He travels to several gaming conventions each year and is the co-founder of Gulf Games, a regional gaming get-together held in the Southern USA. Since you “must” resolve your dice each round part of the strategy is not being stuck with dice that will adversely affect a potential ally. It was fun and engaging (poor Greg has it backwards in his review above); everything the card game isn’t.

And importantly it’s a data point from the past that might become important to the future because a deck of cards has memory. While I wish there were ways in which players could defend themselves, the game is so quick that it isn’t too disturbing. The artwork is nice and the dice you use are of a decent size with clear labelling as to what each side does. As far as social deduction goes, Bang the Dice Game is probably the most accessible one we’ve looked at because there’s no real way for a proper consensus to emerge.However, when players realize they only got two turns to roll the dice and didn’t make any sort of real decisions along the way, they’ll leave the saloon. I have played this game at the end of a heavy game night, introduced it to family and played it during my lunch break with non-gamers. This adds some optional elements to the base game, so depending on the available time (or experience of the players) you can add or ignore the modules this expansion offers.

We haven’t had any major issues with this but people have started learning which special powers are more useful than others.But you know, not everyone can play the best and sometimes the thing that we can really get excited about here on Meeple Like Us is the extent to which a game is playable.
