Blue-bordered Cards (Weapons and other objects)

With this card in play you may play any number of BANG! cards during your turn. These BANG! cards can be aimed at the same or different targets, but are limited to a distance of 1

Brown-bordered Cards (Play and Discard)

Beer / Birra

The Beer can be played in two ways:

  1. As usual, during your turn

  2. out of turn, but only if you have received a hit that is lethal (i.e. a hit that takes away your last life point), and not if you are simply hit.

Beer has no effect if there are only 2 players left in the game

Cat Balou

Force "any one player" to "discard a card", regardless of the distance

Can be used to discard any card in play. Dynamite, Jail, Barrel.

Q28. Can I use Panic! or Cat Balou on cards in play? A. Of course yes. You can play the Cat Balou on a card in an opponent’s hand (randomly choosing which card to pick) or on any one card in play, at your choice. The same for Panic!, with the following differences: you can target only cards of a player at distance 1, and the card you choose goes in your hand even if it was already in play. When that card is in your hand, you can play it as any other card.

Dynamite

Also see: Jail

Players keep passing the Dynamite around until it explodes with the effect explained above, or it is draw or discarded by a Panic! or Cat Balou! If you have both the Dynamite and a Jail in play, check the Dynamite first. If you are damaged (or even eliminated!) by a Dynamite, this damage is not considered to be caused by any player.

Gatling

It is not considered a BANG! card

Jail

Jail cannot be played on the Sheriff

If you have both the Dynamite and a Jail in play, check the Dynamite first.

Panic! Panico!

Also see: Cat Balou

The symbols state: "Draw a card" from "a player at distance 1". Remember that this distance is not modified by weapons, but only by cards such as Mustang and/or scope.

Can be used to take any card in play. Dynamite, Jail, Barrel.

Cards go into your hand, and you can play it as any other card.

Green-bordered Cards

These cards are played in front of you, face up, like the blue bordered cards. To use an effect you must take the card from in front of you and discard it. How ever you cannot use the green bordered cards on the same turn in which you have played them.

Only the cards with a Missed! symbol can be used out of turn

Green bordered cards in front of the players are also defined to be "in play" and can be removed through the play of a Cat Balou, Panic!, Can Can, etc, just like the blue-bordered cards
