The setup and components for the game are real simple. There are President Cards and Player Cards. Each player has one Player Card with a president on it. The President cards are dealt out into a 4x4 grid into the middle of the table. Each player will be one of the listed presidents. There is a body guard meeple that is placed onto the grid to protect the president it is currently on. Each player also takes two veto tokens.
A player has 4 actions to take on his turn. He can Impeach a president that he is next to, provided the bodyguard isn't on the accused. He can swap any two adjacent president cards, provided the bodyguard isn't on one of them. He can ask another player a yes or no question to determine which president another player is. The player being questioned can use a Veto token to not have to answer the question. The final action a player can take is to move the bodyguard.
If a player is impeached and his president is removed, then he just grabs another card and continues to play. The game will end once one player has impeached and removed 3 presidents.
It's not a complex game, but it is fun. It will also help players learn about their presidents. Look for a print and play and some more information on it soon. I want some more feedback.
The other game I forgot to mention I am working on is Capricorn Down. It was meant for the survival contest the Game Crafter was doing. I ran out of time, so I never got to submit it. The concept is all the players landed on Mars and are running out of oxygen. They can choose to work together or by themselves, but the goal is to get to safety.
Players search the crash site for parts to build devices to escape while doing their best to conserve oxygen. They can build escape vehicles that can hold more than one player or build one that will hold just one. Players can fight over parts, but have to be careful not to tear their suits.
Because everyone is a scientist, players are able to make different devices with the different scrap they find. Some things might help them move faster. Some might help them breath better. Build the right devices, make some friends and find a way home.
I never was able to play test it, but I have a print of it and want to try it out. I think it could work okay. I'm not too sure how well the shared victory thing works or if people enjoy that. The game would allow for anyone to make it home to win. I could add points to help create a solo winner. Let me know what you think.
