quot;The Outlaws hunt the Sheriff. The Sheriff hunts the Outlaws. The Renegade plots secretly, ready to take one side or the other. Bullets fly. Who among the gunmen is a Deputy, ready to sacrifice himself for the Sheriff? And who is a merciless Outlaw, willing to kill him? If you want to find out, just draw (your cards)!quot; (From back of box)br/br/The card game BANG! recreates an old-fashioned spaghetti western shoot-out, with each player randomly receiving a Character card to determine special abilities, and a secret Role card to determine their goal.br/br/Four different Roles are available, each with a unique victory condition:br/br/ Sheriff - Kill all Outlaws and the Renegadebr/ Deputy - Protect the Sheriff and kill any Outlawsbr/ Outlaw - Kill the Sheriffbr/ Renegade - Be the last person standingbr/br/br/br/br/A player's Role is kept secret, except for the Sheriff. Character cards are placed face up on table, and also track strength (hand limit) in addition to special ability.br/br/There are 22 different types of cards in the draw deck. Most common are the BANG! cards, which let you shoot at another player, assuming the target is within quot;rangequot; of your current gun. The target player can play a quot;MISSED!quot; card to dodge the shot. Other cards can provide temporary boosts while in play (for example, different guns to improve your firing range) and special one-time effects to help you or hinder your opponents (such as Beer to restore health, or Barrels to hide behind during a shootout). A horse is useful for keeping your distance from unruly neighbors, while the Winchester can hit a target at range 5. The Gatling is a deadly exception where range doesn't matter: it can only be used once, but targets all other players at the table!br/br/Information on the cards is displayed using language-independent symbols, and 7 summary/reference cards are included.br/br/
