So quozl's thread has me thinking about how much fun it would be to re-theme some games "RSP-style" so that they're about our arguments, conflicts, and battle for civilization as we know it instead of what they were originally written for. Rather than continue to spam his thread, I figured I'd aim for some more fun.

I already mentioned that Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game and Arkham Horror would be great that way (LBPs vs. Libertarian digit heads for BSB, change the bad guys in AH to a major political party or figure).

Which game do you think would be a great RSP re-theme with fun, laughs, and maybe some action (gotta have the "S", right?) for all?

We already had something to put the S in Carcassonne a week or so back, a few more tweaks could put emphasis on mayors and cloisters for a full RSP variant.

Runebound could work as well. You have to travel across the realm using your sex-magic to quell political rebellions, gaining enough power to eventually confront and kill God himself (Who may not actually exist when you get there, as determined by a "reasoned debate" held amongst the players). The details will probably work themselves out.

Oh, that was so worth a tip.

Really we should just commission Jason Mattews to make an RSP game.

Kingmaker! A great suggestion considering it has the single worst victory conditions ever in the history of board gaming, which means the game can go on forever.

We might make it an even longer game by having so many heirs to the throne on each side. Killed off Tripp and Drew? No problem. Bramadan, BJ, Wrayman and a host of others are still around.

edit: and DdJ could be the Tudor pretender hiding out in France.

Sounds like Kremlin to me!

Instead of pollitical influence use thumbs...we'd have to jazz it up with a card driven mechanic for threads and pop up lurkers.

Doesn't particularly need a lot of re-theming, but it's a fantastic game.

The best retheme RSP remix would be to combine "Carcassonne" combined with a "Campaign Manager 2008"-like mechanics so that the tile configurations create red and blue territories to populate with different vote-delivering constituencies. With the Gerrymandering variant, one could also change some of the other-color territorial boundaries to one's own color. Unfortunately, this would primarily be a two- or four-player (two teams of 2 players) game unless one bought the Independents expansion allowing a third player to lay down purple territories.
