[ The plague spread too fast. Everybody was infected, ] [ the city gates were sealed. You assist those that ] [ remain and prevent the illness to escape the walls. ] Gather: - 2-6 players - Index cards - Map of a medieval city - Black markers You: - are infected, write on an index card: how is your Skin? Eyes? Voice? - wear a mask, it makes you (write one): SCARY, TRUSTED, SAFE, WEALTHY Flash out significant locales on the map, then the sickest between you takes it. HOME, PAIN, HOPE, FAMILY, AMBITION, UNREST Write each on a separate index card: then everybody chooses one. That's your initial TONE. Use it to: - Set scenes and introduce conflict - Ask each other questions / give answers - Say how the PLAGUE spreads [ Good questions: ] [ - What / who was this [place] / [person]? ] [ - What's [at risk] / [at odds with my knowledge]? ] [ - What / who [brought] / [was affected by] the plague here? ] [ - What's really [going on] / [wrong] here? ] [ - What's been done to counteract the plague? ] Act in turns (when you're up choose one). The PLAGUE: - CHANGES: Exchange [your TONE] / [the map] with another player. - FESTERS: Blacken something on [the map] / [your index card]. - EVOLVES: Add something to [your TONE]. [ Play to find out [your end] / [how you evolve]. ]
