Day 1 of the 30 days, 30 ideas challenge where I create 30 ideas for games over the next 30 days. See other days here.
Long live the Queen!
Game type: Social deduction, card game.
Social deduction game where one player is the royal. This player is know to all other players, who are members of the castle elite.
Other players are trying to murder the royal to help install a different regent.
Two traitor characters: the Assassin and the Anarchist.
The Assassin must try to outright murder the Queen, whereas the Anarchist needs to play a certain number of “bomb” cards to win.
Other players include:
The Queen: who uses her influence to assist other players and can hide
The Bodyguard: who protects the Queen
The Groundskeeper: who checks for traps and disrupts the Anarchist
Etc. Could fit in with the Sandbrook theme, or be a different theme all together.
Other possible variants/characters could be swordsman, inventor, magician, cultist (of course!), Worker, farmer etc
