The Snakescast: Game Spotlight: BANG!


It's a cowboy shootout, spaghetti-Western style

There aren't many games about the Wild West, but there are a few, and BANG! is easily the most popular. The good: secret roles and flying bullets, and most of the time you're not sure who you need to be shooting at. The bad: a few less-than-ideal design choices. The ugly: troubling depictions of a certain racial minority. This week we're talking about all three, as well as the game's spin-offs and how they might or might not address some of the original game's shortcomings.
