Board

From Bang! Howdy Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A board (or map) is the medium for all game play in Bang! Howdy, and is comprised of a grid set over terrain features and aesthetics. Game play occurs as players move their units over a board, earning points and completing objectives. In matches, a board is selected at random for each round. In tutorials, bounty missions, and practice sessions at the ranch, boards are set, and may be unique to a particular mission.

Grid

A grid is a composite of a number of squares (or tiles) on which units, objects, or terrain features can reside. Grids can vary in dimensions from one board to another, but are always rectangular, and often square, in overall shape.

List of match boards

A random board, selected from a list of applicable boards, is the setting of every round. Each town has its own list of boards, though previous town's boards may be used for playing previous town's scenerios. Not all boards offer every scenario possible in a town. Some boards have multiple versions, so they can accommodate different numbers of players. Often these different versions are slightly dissimilar aesthetically, such as in lighting. Boards for all towns are as follows:
