In the U.S. wild west, the eternal battle between the law and the outlaws keeps heating up. Suddenly, a rain of arrows darken the sky: It's an Indian attack! Are you bold enough to keep up with the Indians? Do you have the courage to challenge your fate? Can you expose and defeat the ruthless gunmen around you?
Bang! The Dice Game keeps the core of the Bang! card game in place. At the start of the game, players each take a role card that secretly places them on a team: the Sheriff and deputies, outlaws, and renegades. The Sheriff and deputies need to kill the outlaws, the outlaws win by killing the Sheriff, and the renegades want to be the last players alive in the game.
Each player also 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 his shots, heal his (or anyone else's) life points, or put him in range of the Indians, which are represented by nine tokens in the center of the table. Each time a player rolls an arrow, he takes one of these tokens; when the final token is taken, each player loses one life point for each token he holds, then the tokens are returned to the center of the table.
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. Who'll get his shot off first? Play continues until one team meets its winning condition – and death won't necessarily keep you from winning as long as your teammates pull through!

Excellent combination of luck, secret roles and strategy. You can have lots of fun with a lot of people in fast rounds, so no one gets bored from elimination. Choose right when to reroll your dice and targets, because it will be the way to win, it does not matter what role do you take.

Nice game of dice and manipulation.
the game is resistance/avalon style with a small twist-DICE!!!!
makes the game a bit more random but the overall feeling is very fun!
the fact each player have a known special ability is really cool and add to the game dynamics a lot of fun and replay ability.
overall a nice filer for large group of players.

The original card game was a lot of fun! Re-imagined in dice format it's so much better because the feel of the game has been retained but compressed into a smaller, quicker and more enjoyable package. The dice are great quality and the icons make sense. Hidden roles make for great interaction (bluffing) between players. The character cards which bring different powers to the players add great flavour. The push your luck element is pretty strong in the Yahtzee style re-rolls. I keep forgetting that beer can restore other player's life points... but that might be because I'd prefer to shoot the person who just shot me. FUN GAME (aim for 5-8 players and don't bother with 3 player).
