I’m hard at work finalizing everything in time for the launch of Buy The Rights on Kickstarter, and I just received prototypes for a new idea I recently had: dice! In the instructions, I had a section about an optional mode that is fun to try, the Genre Showdown. In this mode, the Producer picks a genre card and the screenwriters all use the same genre for that round. It adds a fun twist to the game, but I never thought of a good way to trigger that mode.
Then I realized I could use a standard six-sided die and assign game modes to the sides to give people the option of introducing some random game modes into their games. In the current instructions I have optional dice rules that correspond to a standard die, but just for fun, I ordered some blank dice and stickers from Print Play Games and used icons from the game. If people respond positively to this addition, I’m going to make a stretch goal for my Kickstarter where the game would come with custom, etched dice.
To play this mode, roll the die and change up the round to these modes:
The next couple weeks will be pretty exciting. I’ll be filming and editing the Kickstarter video, putting the finishing touches on the Kickstarter page, and launching on the 15th!
