Gameday First Play – Ca$h ‘n Gun$
You point Guns at people…
What else do you want in a game?
In an abandoned warehouse a gangster band is splitting its loot, but they can’t get an agreement on the split! It’s time to let the guns talk and soon everyone is aiming at everyone. The richest surviving gangster wins the game!
I’ve wanted to play this for a while but hadn’t got round to it yet, mostly due to it’s lack of general availability. Also, it’s one of those games that’s just a bit older than my time in the hobby so it was played to death before I had the chance.
My question was “Is this a novelty game where you point a gun? Would pointing a finger work like One Night Ultimate Werewolf? Is there anything else there?”
Well, the answer is no, yes and yes.
It’s not a novelty game. There is tactical play, banter and bluffing. You divide the money in the table by how many players are left in the game at the end of the round. Some will have been shot, some will have dropped out after having too many guns pointed at them.
You have to decide who needs to be out of the round, how many you think will be left in at the end, how much you will get and is it worth staying in and taking a wound to risk getting a slice of a rather large pie.
Yes, finger guns will work, you don’t need a foam one but hey, no one ever complains games are over produced! (too often)
As I mentioned earlier there are a lot of choice so there is a game behind the foam guns.
After the first round of everyone pointing and someone there is a chance for those who have too many targets on their head to bow out. They won;t get any Cash, but they won’t risk losing a life either. Not everyone fires. If you play a Bang card, you fire but you only have 2 of these for the entire game, most cards are ‘Click Click Click’ cards which are used for bluffing. There is a ‘Bang Bang Bang’ card too which fires before Bang, but you only get one of them.
This is a fun agme and I’m looking forward to picking up the Second Edition when it is released.
