Card Game, 4-7 Players, Ages 8+ by Da Vinci Games
Whilst waiting for Sir Lard to appear, we played a game of Bang! the 4th edition of this neat little card game from Da Vinci Games. Sir Nick was the sherrif and all the other roles were dealt out secretly. However there were only six players around the table, so one deputy (me), three outlaws and one renegade (Gareth). The game seemed a little unbalanced as I was far away from the sherrif and so it was difficult to help him. Gareth was shooting everyone in sight and though I managed a little misdirection for a time, the outlaws were soon known and they teamed up to kill the sherrif. The powers of the characters were well balanced and i think this would definitely play better with 7 players so something to look getting to the table soon.

card and dice game, Ages 14+ by Sir Steve
With seven players in attendance, this was a chance to see how well Sir Lard's game stacked up. It has gone through a bit of a transformation since Birmingham and the play tests. There are now red screwage cards and the yellow cards have been tweaked. There is new art and new balanced dice cards. There is also a strict turn order and a rule sheet to explain. The game is nearly there but still needs a name.. Any suggestions on a fantasy bartending game please post below....
The game with seven (two new to the game) was still well balanced. However early leaders (Sir Animal and I) were the targets for screwage and as such the squire was able to sneak to an undeserved one point win!!
There will be new dice, artwork and more by the time we get back to Birmingham in May and we expect to be ready for the kickstarter.... Watch this space for news.....
