About

Town of Misfortune is a game that I want to be a contribution to those who have stayed up laughing and playing a board/card/dice games with their friends late into the night.

It has the potential to bring a great experience mixed with elements like bluffing, strategy, a bit of mystery and most importantly lots of laughter. Check out the video interview at the Game Studio I had recently or Pledge at least $1 for the full rules to learn more.

This first round of the Kickstarter campaign will be used to set up the website, get all the materials including the full prototype and cards printed, and most importantly get those who pledge their sets so they can spread the word and have fun.

The Game...

You and your friends make up the Town of Misfortune where a murder happens each day. Each die face contains an character icon of a Cop, Crook, Witness, Victim, Reporter or Wild. Roll all your dice and conceal them. A player begins and guesses how much, including wilds, there are of one character in town. The following player can GUESS, CALL, or ACCUSE as the game continues. ****Be Very Careful!!! When accusations are made one player will have to PLEAD their case and the only judge is the out loud laughter of the townspeople. ***Not the “lol” that is commonly used in text messages but actual “Laughter Out Loud”.

Rules Sneak Preview # 1

Starting The Game
Which player starts? Good question, we think it should be the oldest player because everyone should respect the elderly. But then again I would also recommend starting a fight club in which the winner would go first, so it is really up to you.

Rules Sneak Preview #2

Let’s get this party started. All players roll their dice and conceal them under their cups. The starting player (aka the winner of the unmentionable fight club) begins by taking the best GUESS of how many of one character he/she/it thinks there are in the town.

The game continues clockwise and the following player can make one of these moves…to be continued
