Last night at the club meeting I play tested my Tales of the Gold Monkey game for Cold Wars in two weeks. For this game I am using the G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T. rules, but I gave all the extras a Save as well as the Main Characters. The game began with most of the board blank, covered with palm trees. As the different groups of explorers and adventurers pushed into the jungle, they discovered different sources of treasure, from a native village to idols with jeweled eyes. These were, of course, guarded by natives, animals, or monster. Each player had a “cut” card they could use for one free re-roll. In addition, each player had three dirty tricks cards they could use to slow down other players.
The game was sufficiently chaotic and bloody, so I don’t plan to make any changes before Cold Wars. I think all the players had a really good time. This will make a good Saturday night game at the convention.
