You wake up to find yourself the denizen of some twisted backwater astral plane ruled over by the Demon King of Fire, Adramelech. He has ascertained that you have gotten off the wrong bus and is prepared to unbind you from his plane under the condition you defeat him in a game of most dire consequence, a game of your choosing, a game for your very soul. Think twice, speak once. Snatch the pebble grasshopper..

(a picture would be nice and please justify your answer)

Good Luck,

Alocrius

I, for one, would challenge the demon to a game of Die Macher, for several reasons:

1. I have been empowered by Scott's video, and know how to play this beast.

2. The demon would have to read Valley Games' Comic Sans rulebook.

3. I would finally get to register a play of Die Macher on BGG.

4. Between learning and playing and rules-mongering, I'm sure I could drag this one well past the notorious five hour playing time.

Downside:

1. The demon surely knows politics like the back of his hand.

Part of me says, what the hell are you thinking? The only way you even have a chance to survive is to play a completely luck dependent game, say "headsies, tailsies" or maybe even Liars Dice might fit the bill here. If you didn't get lucky at least you'd have the chance to bluff your way out of hell. The other half of me, the viking half, says go with Nexus Ops, for I am a deadly shepherd when it comes to managing small herds of Rubium dragons onto the Monolith. And lo', my hand overfloweth with battle cards. The spit of a Rubium dragon is lethal nearly 8 out of 10 times.

I would play Ice Chess. Wouldn't be long before he had no pieces left.

I win in 16 moves against any defence.

I'd choose this one and take the side of the Ogre. Despite Steve Jackson's claims for many years that the game is actually pro-Combine between two skilled opponents, I just don't see it... the "little guys" get crushed roughly 3 out of 4 games in my household.

This imbalance, whether perceived or real, hasn't lessened my enthusiam for this great game over the years. It's still a classic, and a lot of fun. Especially with cool painted minis.

I will crush Death's puny tanks with my missiles, target his missile tanks with my primary batteries, hit the GEVs with my secondary, and run over his infantry... all at the same time.

Trying to out think the dark one, I would pick Pandemic. If he played his best and/or cheated, we both would win, then I could argue that I won as well, therefore I retain at least half of my soul. Or, if we lost, I could try to argue that since he lost as well, he didn't get to claim my soul.

But then again, this is an evil demon. He'd probably insist that I could not pick Pandemic because it was not a game, but was instead a puzzle. shake

I have yet to lose a game of this either as the Allies or Axis. Ok, I haven't exactly played 100 games but I've played it more than 10 with some wargamers who are pretty good and have whipped me badly in other games. The game just seems to fit my style of play extremely well.

Maybe he will get more money and thus victory points in the end. But who cares ? Being the master of corruption he is fed to the crocodiles for sure ! devil
