Quote from: Troy_Costisick on April 09, 2012, 09:45:31 PMBoth sound like they are a lot of fun! How about this for the Guilty game? Instead of playing those characters, how about the PCs be the jury in some unique type of justice system. Each player has to be an advocate for one of four people on trial (Coyote, Lantern, Mimic, Doctor). The written article is the court transcript. You, as the designer, would provide that transcript. The players then have to try to convince the others that their client didn't do the crime. Once a majority of the players (3 out of 4) settle on a verdict, they would then turn to a different part of the book or follow a link to a website with the answer of which charcter actually did it. This would make the game playable only once, since they would know the answer. But it would be a fun exercise in reasoning and rhetorical skills. Would that be too far off from what you originally envisioned for your game?Peace,-Troy
