Game Jams are a way of coming up with new games with a set theme or mechanic. Each fortnight a new GameJam will be posted with my own ideas here. Sometimes I will also be reviewing others’ ideas.
This page will be updated as the idea progresses…
This week’s Game Jam: Music, 30 mins
Due: 26th July 2017
Party game variant, with mechanics similar to games such as ‘snake oil’.
Players recieve a card each from the deck, initial deck will be a mini game of 18-24 cards.
Card backs have a place eg “disco”, “pirate ship”, “rollercoaster” etc.
Card fronts have types of music eg “rock”, “jazz”, “Irish jig”.
Players each receive one card each. The starting player states that they need music for a “place”. Players then chose one option from the back of their card and must argue that their type of music is the best fit.
The starting player then choses a winner, who keeps the place card as a “point”. First player to get three place cards is the winner.
