I am interested in the possible 9-player setups for Bang! that do not upset the balance of the game too much. I do not want any of the players to feel hopeless right at the start of the game when they get their role card.
I found one promising setup on boardgamegeek:
1 Sheriff, 3 Deputies, 4 Outlaws, 1 Renegade (that's how the original game worked)
Are there any more setups that proved to be working or Bang! gets pretty unbalanced at 9 players?
I could imagine something with 2 Renegades, 4 Outlaws, 1 Sheriff, 2 Deputies but I am not sure about it.
