PAX Unplugged 2018

The relevant points:

  1. Players who are eliminated from the game do not reveal their identity until the end of the game

  2. Townsfolk murder any number of players during the day.

  3. Players agree to have a night phase to find out if there are still living Mafia (i.e., they murder someone at night)

  4. Mafia can’t communicate at night and must vote unanimously on one person to kill or they kill nobody

  5. Townsfolk win if a night goes by where no one attempts a murder

I saw that game; did it end up being any good?


#143

No idea - me and Anthony just walked by and had to get a picture of their standee to troll Rym. We didn’t demo it or even remember the name :stuck_out_tongue:


#144

I just assumed it was a new King of Tokyo character

I only played two of these. Word Slam, Estates, and Mesozooic sound right up my alley.


#146

The Estates is, in fact, a very mean game. It feels like you have enough money because it’s so hard to evaluate everything and money is 100% worthless at the end of the game, and then you suddenly don’t have enough.


#147

Q.E. sounds like a tabletop game that could actually translate well to online.


#148

We were mostly playing Azul Sintra right, except that you also randomly pull a piece from the bag, use it as the first round marker, and that color also scores the completed tile bonus for the first round.


#149

Did you get the rule wrong or was this intentional?


#150

I was taught it wrong, and read the rules now. In the two games I played, the first round had no marker or bonus.
