- A purely social game a la Botticelli or Mornington Crescent -- the goal is to plan for a nonexistent game, assigning interesting roles to each other and loudly debating house rules until someone else asks what you're doing. Whoever last spoke gets a point. Continue until everybody else in the room hates you.

- It's a highly tactical combat videogame that's focused on making different 'combos' by having your characters attack in specific sequences or in simultaneous concert. Attacks can be whole, half, quarter, or smaller 2^n fractions within each beat, surrounded by rests and other characters' attacks. Enemies generally try to disrupt this by moving effective combos apart or trying to make some of the attacks fail. When they succeed, magic happens! Also if you write down the attacks as a score it creates a vaguely music-ish thing.

- Learn Like Whoa
Its an educational game with a setting clearly ripped off of the magic school bus, but with kind of a hellbilly twist. You have to get out of the after-life by learning about the scientific principles that would have to underly a realm of eternal damnation

- A symphonic metal take on one of the Murder Ballads. A high soprano (with Scottish accent, of course) sings a traditional tale of high adventure while distorted guitars crash underneath. Think Loreena McKennitt on steroids.

- And I'll finish the thread with an answer for...
A card game about Drama and the Theater. Two players are competing Directors - trying to write competing romantic plays, and has to select two actors to be their romantic leads. Four players are competing Actors - trying to grab a role in the better play. Directors draw some public and secret ingredients for their play ("tragic", "scottish accent", "historical", "spoken word"), and the Actors similarly draw some public and secret attributes that either satisfy these ingredients or describe the actor themselves ("ambitious", "stage fright"). It's two parallel games! A Director wins if they satisfy more of their ingredients than the other by virtue of which Actors are in their play, and go into negative points if they don't have at least two actors to fill the two starring roles. The Actors score +5 pts for being a lead in a better play, +2 pts for having a smaller role in the better play, +1 pt for each of their own attributes that is satisifed, and +1 pt for being in any play at all.Nov 24, 2011
