Killer Game 2014
« on: January 01, 2014, 02:07:08 PM »
As mentioned in my holiday email, I wanted to get at least one Killer game together this year.   

To kick it off, I want to get an idea of when we should play.   So, I want everyone interested to give me a time of year that they think they will have some time to play.

For those of you who haven't played before, Killer is a screenplay writing game when each player creates a character and we put the characters in a situation where there is a killer.  The players take turns writing scenes, and during the scenes they may choose another character to kill off.  Only one character is left standing and that's the Master Killer until the next game. 

I think our current Master Killer is Bill (Reef Dreamer). 

I was also wondering if anyone had any concepts for the game they would like to try. 

There was one I wanted to try where there were zombies on a plane.  So when a character was killed, they turned into a zombie and had to be killed again, or not.  Your character could be killed but you could still be the Master Killer.

Any thoughts?

I'm keen for a game of Killer. February and March sounds like a good start for me. Hell, I'd even be happy with a January game. I'm about to pop into my last year of high school, but I'm told that it's fairly laid back. Any month suits me.

I quite like the zombie on a plane idea. I've never played, so I reckon any idea would sound cool to me, at the moment

The last game's master killer wasn't Bill, it was Rene.  My memory must be going... :-)

If you would like to see a previous game, here's the game script

I was never truly sold on the zombies on a plane one, myself. I remember it was first serial killers on a plane, but that failed due to lack of interest. Kind of a shame because there could've been lots of good times there. But, wherever the Killer game goes, I will follow. =)

The big question is when...  I kind of want to get an idea of when everyone thinks it's a good time to schedule the game.

I'm always around, so it's whenever everyone else is available.

So, if I schedule this for April then that should be ok with everyone?

I'm game, we'd still need a few more people though but they should be easy to find hopefully. I couldn't enter Sean's one because it just came at a bad time for me but I should have a lot more free time this year.

Yeah, was going to have a January challenge at the beginning of the month but when I spotted Sean's challenge, I decided to wait - at least until the writing is done.  I have a pretty easy challenge for people this month.
