We have started making games for our Game Design course, and we are going to do a few practice games before our real thing.
I was able to make a quick little “everybody loses” game that represents what Communists think capitalism means.
You have your 4 players and the government, represented by black, all try to get to the end of a track.
They start in the middle and you can move whoever you roll. So:
- If you are red, and you roll blue, you can move blue backwards.
- If you roll black, you can move the government backwards.
- If you roll your own colour, you can move forward.
The game ends if one colour reaches the front. If it is a player they win, if it is the government, everybody loses.
In our testing, no one ever made it to the front, every game ended with the government winning.
