About this deal

Players that can distinguish colours or can close inspect a card with a suitable accessibility aid will likely be able to tell who they are, but there’s going to be a risk of revealing information to the table. We also enjoy social deception like coup/ avalon but we dont roleplay and really disliked betrayal at the house on the hill. Whilst there are games I would rather play with 4 players there is no other game I want to play more than bang the dice game with 8 players. Each player starts off being dealt a hidden role, with the Sheriff revealing themselves at the start of the game. The hidden role has to mean something and revealing your secret should have consequences on the game.

I would have liked to see a bit more iconography on the cards, but it's the dice that really make or break the game, and they're done well.Here are some of our more lighthearted things to show we're not all about the Serious Business of games. Thirdly there are new role cards, just like the old ones except with a special power that you can use once by revealing your role during the game.

This means killing Outlaws if there are more Team Outlaw than Team Sheriff, and likely killing the Deputies if Team Outlaw has fewer members. These die faces actually make for some interesting decisions about when to keep re-rolling, and when to accept what you have. Bang the Dice Game also makes use of Yahtzee style dice rolling – roll a set of dice, keep some, reroll others. As sheriff you still have to bring the outlaws to heel, as outlaws you still have to stop the law and as renegades you still want to be the last alive, only now the Indians want you all dead too!

The graphics and text are clear and functional and although the rulebook is of the dreaded fold-out variety, it is well laid out and makes the game easy to pick up. Part of the job of criticism is trying to relate cultural products to the wider context in which they exist. The only downside was a missing bullet token when I unpacked the game (there was just a hole in the sheet), but this might have been a single occurrence. The role cards are colored silhouettes that look very attractive, while the character cards have nice colorful artwork and a good design overall.
