Born to Serve is a board game competition between two to five jobless superheroes for the last job in town....at the local restaurant....waiting tables. Oh how the mighty have fallen!
You are a superhero, virtuous, respected and dare we say loved by millions, well ok maybe not millions, but by more than a few people in the little town you and your super group have been tasked with protecting. Unfortunately, the government has cut your group's funding and that means you all are going to need jobs to support your superhero lifestyle. Sadly, there is but one job to be had in town, at the local restaurant. The restaurant owner has decided to let you all try out for the job and whoever has the most tips by the end of the day gets it.
In Born to Serve players are recently unemployed second tier superheroes in competition for a single wait staff job at a restaurant. Each round heroes have five service markers they can use to either spend time serving a table or to enlist the restaurant staff who may aid them by using their personal area of expertise to increase a tip value or to give some kind of an edge over the other heroes.
Tables that have been fully serviced are scored each round with the hero who has the most service markers on it getting the lion's share of the tip. Anyone that helped service the table though does get half of the tip value for each service marker they contributed. In the event of a tie on a table, the hero who is on the highest position wins the table.
Of course, being superheroes, each of you also have two (nominally useful) powers that allows them to bend certain rules in their favor. The player who earns the most money in tips by the end of the day wins the job and the game. Sure, it's not the same as stopping a bank robbery or saving the city, but a hero has to eat too, right?
