Secret Master

New Product: Who Would Win? [card game]

Recommended Posts

Highly recommend by Jason and Tina!

 

In “Who Would Win?” two players draw random character cards and turn up a random event card. Each player argues for 20 seconds as to why their character would win. The other players serve as the jury and vote on which player had the better argument. The first player to win 5 arguments wins the game.

 

Some example possibilities:

 

Ben Franklin vs. Barbie in a lion taming competition

Mick Jagger vs. Pocahantas in a kayaking race

Nelson Mandela vs. Sean Connery in a poker showdown

George Bush vs. Peter Pan in a pie-eating contest

 

This new Gorilla Games product can be purchased from the Hero Store here.

Reminds me a bit of Apples to Apples.

 

Which suffers from the same faults: lack of familiar context.

Both games could probably be improved by the players writing down things they are actually familiar with rather than relying on random chance and the general knowledge of the designer.

I would always vote against whoever had the (current) highest score, unless I could get a dependable promise of a vote.

 

It BEGS for metagame thinking.

If I were to metagame, I'd give everyone limited resources with which to vote and have simultaneous voting to negate that kind of thing :)

 

You want subjective judgement of the contest, but objective attitudes to the players.

Sounds like a good 'car' game for families on long trips. Of course it would have to be a family with sufficiently educated and intelligent kids to recognize who those characters are in the first place.

Who would win?: Who Would Win? or Apples to Apples.

 

Sounds like a good addition to the Beer & Pretzels game shelf. Something to play with friends who don't take all games too seriously.

Is Chuck Norris in there?

 

Don't be silly. That would just break the game. Of course if it were a collectible card game you could sell ultra rare Chuck Norris cards for a lot of money. What was that thing back in the 90s? The Black Lotus?
