In this card game, the outlaws hunt the sheriff, the sheriff hunts the outlaws and the renegade plots secretly, ready to take one side or the other. Bullets fly. Who among the gunmen is a deputy, ready to sacrifice himself for the sheriff? And who is a merciless outlaw, willing to kill him? Those who want to find out just draw (their cards). Mayfair recently came out with an expansion pack called Bang! A Fist Full of Cards.
— Tova Rubin, manager at Toytraders in Lakewood, N.J., said “we have sold hundreds of these decks and it’s relatively new. We keep running out of that one. We have a list of 30 people we have to call when we get it in.” She explained that one boy introduced it to his friends at school and now they’re all hooked.
— At Games Less Ordinary in Exeter, R.I., owner Anne Brewer said that although this game is not a huge success, those that are into it are into it big time. “One guy came in over the holidays and bought four copies” to hook family and friends.
— "Bang! & Dodge City have become game favorites rapidly consuming printrun after printrun since the initial release," said Robert T. Carty, Jr., vice president of sales and marketing for Mayfair Games.

For centuries, trade has been a crucial factor of life in China. From the ancient "Silk Road" to modern ocean trade, the flow of goods and cargo was the very lifeblood of the great "Middle Kingdom." Once, bearers traveling on foot or carts pulled by oxen were enough to fulfill the needs of this great society. But the wheel of time cannot stop turning, and thus new means are being called upon to deliver precious goods to the people.
Like a river of iron, the tracks of new railroads begin to cross the tremendous distances of the land, stretching from Shanghai to Urumqi, from Qiqihar to Hong Kong, and to every city in between. Shining dragons rush along these tracks, delivering goods as mundane as grain, as exotic as jade. From time to time, these young railroads will be called upon to transfer people: the noble workers or exalted party officials.
From Tibet to Taiwan, the needs of the Republic call out to you. With your limited resources, can you construct the most efficient rail network? Can you deliver needed goods more quickly than your competitors?
