Hi there, folks...

I would like to playtest a new Werewolf-esque card game, which is based on my Survivor Werewolf series. It's set in a sci-fi setting, where killer Cyborgs are taking over a human ship. I am planning on either trying to find a game company who might be interested in the game, or marketing it myself (not sure which at this point).

This is a pretty late playtest, so most of the problems should already be worked out, but if you can find a problem or exploit in the rules, now would be a great time to find it and exploit it!

So, if you might be interested in playing here in the BGG forums, please let me know, and I'll send you a copy of the rules and roles. The game should accommodate 4-7 players, but I've only tested 6-player games. The game will always last 4-7 rounds.

I'll get it set up on Cassie as soon as it's available. But if you want an early jump on learning the rules, please let me know, and I'll send you the link.

Thanks!

Sounds like Omega Virus. But of course I'd be willing to help playtest in any way I can.

"You and the three other greatest heroes of planet earth must save the BattleSat1 space station from the evil Omega Virus. Using a computer, you explore the station collecting access cards (red, yellow, blue) and weapons (negatron, decoder, disruptor) - all of which you must find in order to locate and destroy the Omega Virus. The BattleSat pleas for help and the Virus taunts as you try to locate which room the virus is hiding."

That sounds interesting, but it's a lot closer to my Survivor series: Select roles, an "attack phase", and a "vote phase".

Sure, I could give you a sneak peak at the rules... You can let me know if you'd like to play or not.

OK, I've signed up Guenhwyvhar, marrk, TommyDanger, and Violintides.

We will start when full, and once we start, I'll give you a day or two of discussion until we formally start blasting each other!

Thanks...

Re: Us versus Them playtest - Join the blast-a-thon! (4/7)
Two of my other games are set to start at the same time now, which will leave me overbooked, so if this ends up starting before next week I might have to drop out.

I did read the rules and it sounds really interesting! So if you fill up feel free to boot my spot to make room if you want to start ASAP and I will definitely be following along!

Re: Us versus Them playtest - Join the blast-a-thon! (4/7)
I'll tell you what - if we get ONE MORE PLAYER, we can start with 5. That should still be a good test!

Are you interested?
Yes, I'm talking to you, lurker!


Join the Us versus Them playtest -
* Interesting ruleset.
* Not an incredibly long game (4-7 rounds)
* Lots of room for strategic double-think.
* Join up, or you're a sissy coward!

Are you CYBORG or HUMAN? robot whistle

Hey, folks... Would you be in favor of playing a six-player game?

Re: Us versus Them playtest [All slots filled!]
The way this will work - Everyone send me their role, and then take a bit of time sizing up the competition. Then privately send me two actions (NULL, ATTACK, or VOTE), with a target for each of them.

I'd like to run one round every couple of days, excepting weekends.

Re: Us versus Them playtest [All slots filled!]
Do we know what our initial hands are?

1. Choosing roles: All players secretly choose a role from their hand and place it face down in
front of them. Players cannot use a role which was used in a previous round. Once played, the
role cannot be changed. After playing a role, the player may immediately go to Phase 2: Choose
Actions.

Or is our initial hand one of every role card?

All players start out with the same 8 roles. (The 8 roles of the role sheet.) robot
