Barrel - is it mandatory?

Postby mec25 » 07 Sep 2006, 21:14

Is it mandatory to use the barrel when someone shoots you?

For example, if you are an outlaw, and you want to let another outlaw kill you to get the 3-card reward, can you choose not to use your barrel and let the outlaw kill you?

...but it isn't.

The rules say this about it;

"The player using such a card must "draw!", i.e. etc. etc. etc."

It is completely up to you, whether you want to use this ability or not. I mean, no one can be forced to hide behind it ;)

I'm not sure, cause in FAQ for BANG! is this:

Q27. What happens when a player forgets to apply the effect of a card (e.g. a Barrel) or an ability of his character?
A. Remember that some abilities and effects are not mandatory (for example the ability of Jourdonnais). Anyway, if a players forgets to apply some effect, he can still correct his behaviour before the next card is played. After that time, the game is considered carried over regularly and he cannot do anything about it.

srab is correct.
From the rules (please note that "must")
[quote]Some cards show a poker card as part of their symbols. The player playing such a card [b]must [/b]"Draw!" he has to flip over the top card of the deck, discard it, and look at the poker symbol in the lower left corner.[/quote]
