Could this game be expanded to more players by adding a few extra guns (including matching character cards and bullets) Would the game need more money? Could this actually effect game play? I know there is the upcoming yakuza rules to add more players but for a first game with more than 6 it seems to me that simpler is better. I don't think the game dynamics would suffer from a few more players but I was curious if anyone had already tried it.
we've put 2 sets together for a couple of games to get to 9 players, adding half the money from a second set. We didn't use the undercover cop like we always to because it would have been too chaotic. it was okay, but not as tight as 6 players.
In Les Yakuzas, you put out 8 bills a round instead of 5, for 9 people instead of 6. I think it would work fine to play with up to 9 this way, you would only need, for each additional player:
-a toy gun -8 cards (playing cards: ace=Bang! x3, face card=bang!, number=clic; or print out scanned CnG cards) -8 bills (monopoly money or scanned CnG bills); add an additional bill to the loot every round. -A character card/stand (if you want)
If you have the shotgun or uzi, you don't even need another gun.
