This is a quick cheatsheet to help viewers understand the gameplay and icons of the Last Game Wins! - Bang! livestreams.
Bang! is a hidden role game. There are 3 teams:
1 Sheriff and 2 Deputies: They must eliminate all the Outlaws and the Renegade, to protect law and order.
3 Outlaws: They would like to kill the Sheriff, but they have no scruples about eliminating each other to gain rewards!
1 Renegade: They wants to be the new Sheriff; their goal is to be the last character in play.
Starting with the Sheriff, players take turns in a clockwise direction.
Each turn the player does the following
