Which of the three expansions are worth getting, and make the game better. Are any of them worth skipping?

Also, what is Bang! Face off? is it a 2 player variant or a different game altogether?

Thanks!

I think all three are worth getting, though at this point you might want to hold out for the Deluxe Edition.

Dodge City is a must, I think. I've never gone back to vanilla Bang after adding it in and would never want to.

The other two expansions are good and we generally use them, but you might not be interested in them until you've played the base game a lot and want to try something new.

Face Off is a new game altogether using the cards from the base game.

cool, thanks. I assume the deluxe edition will be the base game with all three add-ons included?

The designer hinted at some extra special stuff beyond that too.

So far they're throwing in a Sheriff's badge, and it sounds like a new character is being added in as well. Possibly other new characters as well.

The only expansion I have is Dodge City and I don't use it any more. I much prefer the 'virgin' game. With one exception - the 15 extra characters in DC are welcome. Other than that I think DC just adds unecessary complexity, and helps the game drag on longer than it needs to. The Green cards are pretty 'meh' imo.
