Overview

Each player takes on the role of one of these comical criminals and is armed with a big foam gun and deck of cards representing bullet chambers in said gun.

The goal of Cash 'N' Guns is to collect the most look over 8 rounds of play. Each round some of the money is laid in the center of the table at random. Each player then chooses one of the cards in his deck (some are bullets and some are blanks) and plays it face down on the table in front of them. Now the fun starts.

On the count of 3 everyone points their gun at someone else at the table, resulting in a sort of crazy comical standoff with guns pointed in every direction. Quickly you take stock of how many guns are pointed at you, and at other people around the table.

Then the shit-talking starts. Are the people with guns pointed towards you filled with nothing but blanks? You willing to call their bluff?

After a few beats and everyone has a chance to survey the proceedings another 3 count is done, and players now decide if they want to retreat and hide (taking them out of splitting the money that round) or stand their ground and take their chances that the guns pointed at them aren't loaded.

Cards are flipped, player shot are out of the round and surviving ones split the loot. Get shot 3 times and you're out of the game, whoever has the most money at the end is the winner!

There's something goofy and fun about the moment when everyone points there guns, and even talks a little trash to try and get their target to back down ("You feeling luck punk? Well, Do ya?"). It's the embodiment of the classic heist gone wrong but played out for comedic effect. A few beers and this game goes from great to fantastic.

The interesting game mechanic here, aside from the great shit talking, is the press your luck element. Since each deck is mostly filled with blanks (5 blanks to 3 with actual bullets) just because a gun or two is pointed at you doesn't mean you're getting shot.

But the fear is still there, I mean someone IS pointing a gun in your face after all! You can hedge your bets a bit by trying to track who's played what on previous turns (since once you use a card it's out of the game), but to be honest it's pretty difficult with so much going on.

In addition to that basic game there's a few options in the box to enhance and change-up the basic gameplay. There are cards that can be distributed to give each player a special power or even a variant called "A cop in the mafia" where one person at the table is actually an undercover cop and needs to be found before the cops arrive and shut the whole thing down.
