A sour scent of sweat and desperation mingled with the...

The cart was packed to bursting point. Shoulder to shoulder, elbow to elbow, like cattle we squirmed as we made our desperate pilgrimage through the rickety switchbacks of the doomed metropolis.

I love the visual design of all of Facade's games, and the price point is appealing. But before the pandemic, I only had one monthly group that would be interested in social deduction games, and the hosts had their first kid last year. So I'm going to wait and see if that group resurrects post-pandemic before getting anything from Facade.

.

It seems like you really enjoy it, why the 3.5 stars? Not your cup of tea in general or is something holding the game back?

Seems pretty fun, ill need to watch a video though to see it in action. I suspect this will pop up in ren faire campsites 'cross the land :p

Three point five is a good score! I absolutely hate the star rating system- reducing anything to such a binary delineation is reductive and I'm rubbish at it. I guess my thinking is a four stars is 'outstanding' and a five is a rare 'best in class' affair. But even then there's so many different factors to account for and so many different styles of games with different aims, investments and ambitions that I struggle to contract my impressions of them to a numerical shorthand. I've always found it absurd. Back in the day when certain magazines would award games a score out of 100? What's separating a 77 from a 73? is there some kind of weird algorithm going on? Madness.

Anyway, yeah I'm not a big party games/social deduction fan as I generally prefer something a bit more involved but this one is just a really good time! You can whip your friends. Who doesn't wanna do that?

Yeah there's a solo variant but I can't imagine it being that engaging. This is an engine powered by tension, bluff and schadenfreude. The whole packaging conceit is lovely though, it has me tempted to complete the set-especially if they're as well realised as this one.

Also- speaking of Renaissance Fairs, I have an acquaintance who swears they're basically a massive puffy-sleeved shag-fest, albeit one without showers :/

History was ALWAYS a shagfest until those puritans moved over here and ruined it for everyone.

At least according to all the HBO, Showtime, and Cinemax historical documentaries I've seen :p

Haha I'm pretty sure Netflix has a nipple quota for every historical drama they greenlight.

"This is a pivotal episode where Marco Polo becomes accepted in the Mongol court so I'm thinking at least four tits, maybe five"

"Five tits?"

"Yeah, profile shot. Very classy".
