The Tabletop Spotlight is on BANG! The Bullet Edition!
BANG! is a game classic game and the Bullet Edition has been out for awhile. But it’s a perennial favorite and our friends at Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy wanted to show off the awesome packaging – and I’ve always wanted to take a look inside:
The core game itself is pretty straight forward. The players are each receive a random card assigning them a role: Outlaws, Sheriff, Deputy, Renegade. They are also given character cards and a hand of cards. Most of the cards are BANG! cards that allow you to shoot at other player. There are also MISSED! cards that allow you to dodge another players attack. Outlaws are trying to kill the Sheriff, the Deputies are trying to take out the Outlaws and protect the Sheriff. The Sheriff is also trying to take out the Outlaws and the Renegade is just trying to be the last player alive.
The kicker is that the roles are hidden! So it’s a fun bluffing/hand management/co-op game that pits your wits against the rest of the players. It’s a great party game and it’s withstood the test of time – plus what other games come in packaging shaped like a giant bullet?! This particular edition actually has core set plus 3 expansions. So if you are looking for a new party game then go pick-up BANG! The Bullet Edition!
