Bemused Review 05 Nov 2017 22:00 #257247

According to some literary theory, an author's interpretation of their own work is no more or less valid than that of any reader. If we apply the same to game design, what do we make of designer Jim Felli's insistence that Bemused is not a social deduction game? It looks like one, smells like one and plays like one so, in the face of so much evidence, we can only put this down to a case of madness, right?

Oftentimes defeat is splendid, victory may still be shame;
Luck is good, the prize is pleasant but the glory's in the game!

I'm not going to spoil anything for anyone, but I missed this totally when playing the game: the designer pointed this out to me afterwards. However, if you look carefully at the card art and consider what's depicted, there are some fun Easter eggs. Arguably, they raise it from quality game art to actual art.

So, I finally played this.

This is one of the nastiest games I’ve played in years. It’s basically a free for all in a Thuunderdome.

Art is fantasric and the setting is very well fleshed out. Very unique game.
