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 their shots, heal their (or anyone else's) life points, or put them in range of the Indians, which are represented by nine tokens in the center of the table. Each time a player rolls an arrow, they take one of these tokens; when the final 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, they fire one shot at everyone else and rids themself of Indian tokens. Who'll get their 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!
