Hi,


I need a game that has something similar to bang, but without being bang!

- A card game
- With heavy interaction(my friends like to shot me)
- Similar weight & depth
- Don't mind Icons instead of words, as there are few games in our local
language and not all of us can understand english.
- with a good theme(if possible with good art, but not necessary)
- Fast, that's the main reason they like bang, they can just come in, kill me, and start again.
- similar to above, low downtime, bang has already a good chunk of downtime when playing with 7(which leads us to the last point)
- high player count, we usually play in 5~7 groups, with some cases of 4 or 8, but reaching a 5~7 groups is enough



Games that i already considered and don't fit my bill:
- Samurai swords(is...you know...bang)
- Bang the dice game(we like cards more)
- Spyfall(Waiting for it to arrive already, but i'm looking for something more...well, less passive? not sure how to say it in english)


anything? please

Deffinitely Saboteur - it gives us all the stuff we like from Bang while being a totally different game. It also is super cheap!

Also, take a look at Cosmic Encounter.

Shadow Hunters

My friends really like this type of game too. You might also try The Resistance if you haven't already, though it's definitely not as similar as Shadow Hunters.

My favorite group game would be Mascarade. As soon as you get over the hump of explaining the rules to everyone, it's a game pretty much any group can play...and the expansion definitely improves the experience.
Also, it has great art and is language independent (aside from learning the rules for the roles).
Shut Up and Sit Down did a video for it that got me excited enough to pick the game up. Maybe look into that and see what you think.
