Could i interest anyone in trying to play a print and play game I've built of "The Thing"?

Small disclaimer in that I haven't had an opportunity to try it out yet, so the first try will need people willing to muddle through it with me. But it looks really interesting.

I love "The Thing" - I'll give this a go! - I'm not big on "pure" co-ops.... but I'm assuming there's some kind of traitor mechanic if you get infected?? Very Happy

Hugh & anyone else I missed (that has or wants to pay their £2 membership) - I'm putting in another order for '10% off at Patriot Games' key fobs. Can you put your full real name here so I can update our database. Ta

I have since tried it out and it's a fun game. There are dice, and cards, and worker placement (ish) mechanics. Timing of doing things is also really important we found.

Basic premise is the outpost players are trying to accomplish various things (plot of the film, basically, although there is a bit of randomness in there and side tasks). It starts as a 1 player (The Thing) vs everyone else (number of outpost players + remaining non player characters), but throughout the game The Thing infects either the players or non player characters and causes trouble (attacking, sabotaging, and generally annoying). There's also a really nice touch where The Thing can choose to not infect someone, but do the same action as if they were. The game is really geared towards creating paranoia and getting to the point where nobody trusts anybody.

It culminates in a massive end fight (or brawl depending on how many Things there are, and if they want to reveal themselves) and then either burning down the complex or waiting to see what happens/if there are any things left. Obviously, if you're that paranoid you'll just vote for burning it down, but if there aren't any Things left, and you burn, you lose. There are various ways to win/lose as well (for The Thing too).

Basic game plays 2-4, but there is an expansion (which I've also printed) to go up to 6.

Me too! The Thing looks very interesting. Pity I won't be there to play it. We sometimes play Avalon on a Tuesday, which is another excellent social / hidden traitor game. Hopefully someone else will bring their copy tonight...
