BANG! The Dice Game retains the core of the Bang! deck of cards in place. At the start of the game, the players each take a role card which secretly places them in a team: the sheriff and the deputies, the outlaws and the renegades. Sheriff and MPs must kill outlaws, outlaws win by killing sheriff, and renegades want to be the last remaining players in the game.
Each player receives a character card which grants him a special power in the game. The Sheriff reveals his role card and takes the first turn of the game. On a turn, a player can roll the five dice up to three times, using the results of the dice to shoot neighboring players, increase the range of their hits, heal their hit points (or those of someone else), or put it within reach of the Indians, who are represented by nine tokens center of the table. Each time a player throws an arrow, he takes one of these tokens; when the last token is taken, each player loses one life point for each token they hold, then the tokens are returned to the center of the table.
If a player collects a trio of Gatling symbols on the dice, he hits everyone and gets rid of the Indian tokens. Who will shoot first? Play continues until a team meets their winning condition - and death won't necessarily prevent you from winning as long as your teammates are out!
