We have updated the rulebook to version 2.0. It has a single important revision to the rules on Page 4 (item 3 below):
------------------------------------
A round ends in one of three ways:
(1) Just one player survives and takes all four Gold Bars.
(2) Two players survive and must participate in a Final Showdown.
(3) No players survive – no one gets the four Gold Bars. Instead, all
those NOT involved in the last Vote, gain one Gold Bar from the deck.
------------------------------------
The new version of the rulebook is available for download here on BGG.

Why was this change made?
The game now always progresses forward with at least one player gaining gold. There are no longer any null rounds of any kind, either from multiple Ambushes or from players all targeting one another. This has a desired effect of speeding the game to conclusion. It also addresses a previous wrinkle in the three-surviving-players-scenario.

Where can we find this updated rulebook? At the moment it's neither in the files section nor on the official website, to the best of my knowledge.

Also, if I may be so bold, in this sentence:

Quote:
Instead, all those NOT involved in the last Vote, gain one Gold Bar from the deck.


The second comma makes the sentence feel clunky. Perhaps this:

Quote:
Instead, all those NOT involved in the last Vote gain one Gold Bar from the deck.

I guess the moderators didn't get it in time last night. Perhaps this evening. But either way, this is the full change. There were no other edits.

This works, thank you for being willing to do errata and to make the game as good as it can be.

Just to clarify term 3:
Quote:
(3) No players survive – no one gets the four Gold Bars. Instead, all
those NOT involved in the last Vote, gain one Gold Bar from the deck.

Does this mean that that who were shot in previous votes take 1 gold from the deck? In a rare case that no one survives the first vote, does NO one take a gold bar?

That's how I read it.
