Bang! Gold Rush

A rich expansion


The setting of the game is the Wild West as known from the so called “Spaghetti Western” films. Each player secretly chooses a role (Sheriff, Deputy, Outlaw or Renegade) and a character with special abilities; only the player of the Sheriff is known to other players. You draw two cards and use a card to either assist yourself or you attack other characters within range. With “Bang” cards you shoot and you can deflect hits with “Missed” cards. If you are out of life points, you are out of the game. You win if you eliminate others: The Sheriff needs to eliminate Outlaws and Renegade, Outlaws the Sheriff and the Renegade needs to be the last one on the game.

Gold Rush introduces 24 equipment cards, 8 character cards and a shadow renegade card for the Shadow Gunslinger variant. If you cause another player to lose a life point you receive a gold nugget from stock. If you hit several players with one card, you take a nugget per damage inflicted. In Phase 2 there are three new actions: You can use gold nuggets immediately to by equipment cards; cards with a black border you keep open-faces. Or you can force another player to discard equipment cards by paying cost of the card +1, or you can play a beer card and take a gold nugget. In the Shadow Gunslinger version you return from the dead to the game for each turn but are not present for all consequences in between. The shadow renegade always allies himself with the weakest team.  

This version, too, adds to the fun with a Wild West setting, it gets even more interesting and varied, and if gold enters the stage it gets really dangerous for everybody.
