How It Plays

  • Game Mechanics:   This is a dice rolling, hidden role, bluffing game with a push your luck mechanic.  Players roll and re-roll dice to shoot, blow up and heal each other while trying to survive long enough to fulfill their hidden roll objective.  All rolls are hidden except the Sheriff.
  • Turn Summary:
    1.  Roll dice - Take arrow chits equal to the number of arrows rolled.  If all arrow tokens are gone then Indians attack and all arrow tokens result in 1 damage and are returned to the stack.  Any dice not a dynamite may now be re-rolled.
    2. The player may re-roll up to 2 times or until 3 dynamite are rolled.  If 3 dynamite are rolled take 1 damage.
    3. Apply dice affects.
      • Beer - Heal any player by 1
      • Bulls Eye 1 - choose a player 1 left or right to take 1 damage.
      • Bulls Eye 2 - choose a player 2 left or right to take 1 damage.
      • Gatling Gun - if 3 or more Gatling guns are rolled, discard any arrows and every other player takes 1 damage.
  • End Game/Victory:  The game ends immediately if:
    1. The Sheriff is eliminated: if a Renegade is the only one alive he wins otherwise all outlaws win the game.
    2. All the Outlaws and Renegades are eliminated:  The Sheriff and all Deputies win as a team.
