I like the idea of targeting spacing. Being able to aim for players that are one or two spaces away. Can I use this in a game?

Also, can I use similar cards that increases and decreases player's spacing?

Yeah, go ahead!
Make sure you have some other things that are different and you'll be fine.

Indeed.

Nor is the aspect of the mechanic you are discussing unique to Bang!

For this one, you even have legal precedent to lean on. Go ahead.
