You're playing a game that allows alliances, but they aren't necessary. What do you do?
I make a pact with my best friend, I know they won't betray me
Make an agreement, but be prepared to fight if it turns sour
There is too much risk involved, I'd rather work on my own
Every elf needs to be a part of a good party, Lets go comrade!
Start a temporary alliance, just until I can get myself into a sturdy position
I'll team up with anyone, you gotta take chances if you want to get the win
Should a game be all about chance? Or strategic thinking?
I prefer to use strategy to amass my empire, chance can kind of ruin my plan
I usually don't do too well with chance, but it seems to effect everyone else too, so I'm ok with it
Chance just slows me down and gets in the way, its time to muscle up and hit hard!
Give me a mountain of dice and watch me go to town, chance is a non negotiable
A little bit of chance can keep everything fair, but I still need to have a lot of control
I'm not superman, sometimes I'm going to fail and it can even be a part of the fun!
Zombie's are trying to bash down your front door, what's your weapon of choice?
Your mighty great sword you bought at the renaissance fair, I knew this would come in handy some day!
I hide, my friends will come and protect me! Won't they?
Chainsaw, lets hope it starts up...
Flamethrower, If movies have taught me anything, it's that fire fixes everything.
I don't want to attract more, so lets get this done quietly, Silenced Pistol
Weapon? I've already set up an elaborate set of traps. Im untouchable
You just caught another player cheating. What do you do?
Ignore it, you are so far ahead that he needs all the help he can get
Depends what kind of cheating it was, it is just a game after all.
Call them out, I'd like to see them try that again with everyone watching!
It seems we have a rogue in our midst, I best watch him closely.
Plan how you will get them back without calling them out
Well he didn't get away with it but I know I can!
Which of the following is the most appealing to you?
Plenty of rich back story to delve into
Being able to slug it out to see who is the best
Having multiple options of how to win the game
Fun and engaging gameplay that includes everyone
Lots of press your luck opportunities
Plenty of strategic elements and the opportunity to utilise these
You just bought a new game and are excited to show your friends, how do you approach teaching it to them?
Start by reading the engaging story at the start of the rule book, they'll be hooked!
Show them an example of a turn first, open handed so we are all on the same page
Work out the basic rules but dont share the expanded mechanics with them, they don't need to know... probably
Read the entire book front to back before even touching the playing pieces
Just set up the board and take it as it comes
Set up all the pieces you'll need and make sure everyone has enough space to play
You see a brand new game in your local store. You are going to buy it, but what sold you on it?
Its a party game, so I will be able to play this with my large group of friends
I've heard about this game, its pretty complex and hard to beat. Bring it on
It had 'Roll' in the title... so uh..
The game has a lot of physical pieces, I love good quality components!
The art, I mean look at all the colours! It's beautiful!
It's a free for all style game, this means I'll be able to crush my oppenents!
The world is under attack by super powered beings, what's your secret power?
Super Strength: I spend my days building towers, do you really think my strength is a secret power?
Super Speed: I usually use it to get around and see everyone at the party... but it could help here too
Fire Manipulation: All will be cleansed with my righteous fire!
Telepathy: I don't have to pretend to be anyone else, I just make them think I am!
Flight: At least I hope it works... I better not try from a high point first
Invisibility: Why run head first? If they can't see me I can do whatever I want to them
When you're trying to describe a game to a friend who hasn't played it before, whats the first thing you mention?
If it comes with a lot of components
How much freedom you have
What the story is about
If there is player elimination
How complex it is
Whether or not we play as a team
When you were a child, what was your favourite game to play?
Stuck in the Mud
Hide and Seek
Heads down, Thumbs up
Duck, Duck Goose
What's the time, Mr Wolf?
