Your cat likes me more
In brightest day / In blackest night / No evil shall escape my sight / Let those who worship evil's might / Beware my power--Green Lantern's light!
The Magic site put up an article yesterday about some new Multiplayer formats, including one called Usurpers. Reading about it, I couldn't help but feel a sense of déja vu...
One player is the Monarch and makes his or her role known. (All other roles stay secret.)
One player is the Bodyguard. The Bodyguard and the Monarch win if they are the last two players in the game.
Three players are Assassins, who win if the Monarch is defeated.
One player is the Traitor, who wins when he or she defeats the Monarch and is the last player in the game.
No mention of Bang! is given in the article. The author says the format was created by a member of his playgroup; I've emailed him to let him know that it's just Bang! on Dominaria.
It's a neat idea for Magic, though, and it could really work for many games of this sort...
