Re: The Dark Tower - Day 1 - Mistrust

Sorry for not posting. At a conference, and only now got some time to post. First thoughts on my skim read: jimbob does feel very suss to me.

Re: The Dark Tower - Day 1 - Mistrust

Nice to see Boomfrog back, as well as other players. I have read most of King's books, though it was a while ago. If there is an SK, I hope it's It. Everyone floats down here... 8/3/1/1 would be my guess, as I think Sabrar said everyone has power roles, with one anti-town indy (SK likely), and one n...

Re: Crossfire - The Showdown (Raxxon [Blue Team] + Bystander Win)

Yeah, I wouldn't include the bomber in a 5 player game, as that puts the red team at a massive disadvantage; They need the VIP AND the bomber shot to win. The blue team just needs the bomber shot. Creates a no win situation for red team. I think a 7 or 9 player game would be the optimum number of pl...

Re: Crossfire - The Job (Game On)

If I ran it again, I would make everyone send me their initial claim, so that they are all revealed at the same time. Would make it a bit fairer.

A single shot rings out across the street. The VIP drops to the floor, checking themselves, making sure it wasn't them the bullet hit.

Apologies, it meant to say 'the' list.

So your passed card would have been Dimochka's dealt card, and your dealt card would be Madge's passed card.

Good game, and great flavour. I do agree that it was probably balanced in favour of town. Everyone getting an ability tends to do that. But then, town needed the help of an indy to win the game, but I think most indys, if it comes down to a pure 50/50 choice, would side with town. I'd play another o...
