Cosmere Board Games, Anyone?

53 posts in this topic

Lets face it. Setting up a tabletop RPG takes a long time. You need to write out a character, build a campaign, and get people interested. And, if you're playing with new people, you basically have to go through all that twice because you need to explain everything to them first, and then help them out with everything else.

Not that I don't love RPG games. They're probably one of my favorite kinds of games in the world. However, it's just so much easier to throw a board on the table, deal out some cards, and get playing; not to mention that you only have to explain everything once before somebody gets it.

So is anyone interested on making some Cosmere games? How does a Stormlight Archive board game sound? A Mistborn trading card game? We don't have to stick with the cosmere: we could try and make a battle-royal style Reckoners game, or an X-Wing style Skyward game. I think that the possiblities are endless.

So, that being said, who's in?

Would the cards be from just one planet, or characters from all over the cosmere

I am yet to determine any of this! However, I think going one world at a time would be good. How about a Stormlight Archive board game, first? I'm thinking we could make the board be the map of Roshar, and you are given a card that determines to what spren you're bonded to, as well as what Knight Radiant you are. The only question is: Where to we go from there?

I can’t promise to devote a ton of attention to this, but I’d definitely love to help out! 

Edit: The concept of a cosmere version of Monopoly has been lurking in the back of my head for a while, but a whole new game would definitely be cool.

If anyone's legitimately interested in this then should I make a discord? When I was on the doc with someone it became a little difficult to communicate, so a discord could be pretty helpful.

That could work. I myself don't have access to discord, but everyone else could. Maybe Google Hangouts?

I’m cool with Discord. I don’t get on Google Hangouts or Drive often, but I can do that too. Where was the difficulty on the doc?

I would like to help with this! I love board games, I've played a ton of them. This would be after the stormlight game, but an Alcatraz bluffing game comes to mind as a possibility.

Also @Kidpen I believe you double-posted.

Looks like a computer accident. Edit: Kidpen fixed it. 

Are you making a hangouts too?

If we want a hangouts then I'd need some email addresses...

 

Hence the reason why I was more partial to a discord.

I’m willing to give mine, and people could always make a new email. *shrugs* 

There’s also just this thread, which any of us can use.
