How are you guys liking it over the card game. Does it feel the same? Any draw backs or red flags?

I have loved Bang but I have also gotten into a few games that drag on and on and on... does the dice game address this?

I never played the original Bang game but this one plays nice and quick and would recommend as a good filler game. The only thing with is it needs to have at least 5 players to have a decent game. The 3 player game is pointless with everybody knowing each other's roles and the 4 player is just not dynamic enough though it does have the hidden roles.

This game does definitely not drag. I would only recommend this light game for 6+ players and specially for 7-8. I do not agree with people that say that this game is better than Bang! or even replaces it. This game feels more like Zombie Dice in its simplicity than King of Tokyo or original Bang! and when it truly shines is when 7-8 people are playing it, because it does indeed finish in 15min or so, unlike Bang! that could take 90min easily.

I never played the card game, but I bought the dice game and Bang! Samurai Sword, because every review said that both games are superior than the original bang card game. But don't like them so much. And everybody else also don't like them and say that the original Bang card game is much better.
I have to try the card game, if it is better or if I don't like the whole Bang! system at all.

This games takes about 15 minutes. If it comes down to a duel, it takes a bit longer but 99/100 games are under 30 minutes.

It's a light filler for a big group. 6-8 player game basically, it's still playable with five. It's fast and fun game for a big group.

I don't like the original very much for the fact that it can over an hour in some cases and some players may be dropped out of the game after the first round.
