Do you remember this book? Short, kind of to the point, but an awesome idea.


Has there been a game made similar to this story? I have an idea for one but I don't wanna steal the idea of something similar if it exists.

Well, you could re-theme Letters from Whitechapel

Who are the players, in the boardgame? The hunters, or the hunted?
Although I suppose you could have a mix.

Its both and can be played in these ways:

Solo as hunter
Solo as huntee

2p versus
hunter vs huntee

2p coop
(NPC)Hunter vs (2p) huntee & huntee

3p
(1p): Hunter vs (2p) huntee & huntee

maybe 4p but doubtful.

Seems like the idea could make a nice expansion scenario for Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island

Theoretically the game could go up to 1 vs x players.

I had the idea a few weeks ago that we need a game based on that. Unfortunately it was just the idea since I didn't have time to work on it.

Well, there is Killer, but a boardgame?
I don't know ...
But this would surely be interesting!

So, yeah, go ahead!



Kind regards,
Kai

I love that short story! It's a cool idea for a board game. I would definitely play it.

By the way, I remember the story being used as the framework for a Lost in Space episode, in which the hunter guy had a weapon that shot circular saw blades at John Robinson. Does anyone else remember this?

Nope I don't even know the short story.

I know that plot from the 1936' black-and-white movie...
...and of course the Simpson-version.

Good thanks guys!!

My wife is super excited about this game. we have been brainstorming for the past 3 days and finally have a base premises with most mechanics in place.

I have a few other games that I am working on right now but I think this one will have to take precedence!

My wife and I are trying to make it as thematic as possible. We want you to feel the thrill of the hunter and the fear of the huntee. Lots of work ahead of us but we are both to that point where we want to create it so we can start play testing.

I've loved that story since I read it in high school. I've always wanted to see more done with it, but I don't know how it would work as a board game.

Keep us posted on how it goes. I'd be excited to play something like this when it comes out.

This theme pops up fairly often in board games. Though oft in a more roundabout way. Lets see.

Dungeon! Latest solo version in the box has you hunted by a monster.

Survival / The Barbarian The Survival half of this game has a variant where one player is hunting the other.

Escape from Altassar Has space POWs trying to escape aliens hunting them.

Barbarian Prince in a very round-about way. You have to achieve your goal before the enemy discovers you within X number of days.

D&D while not a board game. Has a a few modules with this theme. PCs trying to escape hunters.
