I have 2 questions on the equipment which are always active (snake, dynamite, etc.):
1. these cards are to be counted when calculating the number of bangs of the fanning?
2. when the owner of one of these cards dies, these cards are to be discarded, or go to the other character still alive, or go to the new character who substitute the dead one?
thanks for your questions
1. Yes, all equipment cards - including Dynamite and Rattlesnake - are relevant for Fanning!
2. When a character dies all his equipment cards are discarded.
Hope this helps
