Bang! has had a relatively large number of changes over the years. I know lots of people who are used to a different edition than I am. Often, this means they are used to a different set of rules and a different deck composition. What are the changes in each edition?
For the sake of clarity, I mean only the editions having English text. (Italian/English versions are fine but not the versions like French or Czech/Slovak/Polish.)
Whenever an expansion has been included in an edition, I'd appreciate it if you would describe any changes from the separately-available expansion or which edition the expansion is.
As far as I'm aware, there are five different editions of Bang!, listed below (printings' dates listed in parentheses):
- 1st Edition (2002)
- 2nd Edition (2003, 2005)
- 3rd Edition (2007)
- The Bullet (2007, 2009, 2010)
- 4th Edition (2008)
Note: Your answer doesn't have to say all the changes for every edition; it will help even if you just mention a few changes.
