After nearly a year having first seen the TableTop episode featuring the game, I was finally able to get my greedy gamer hands on a fresh copy. Time to find out who the traitor(s) is/are.
As an added quirk, does anyone else see this as a bit of a story-telling tool like Fiasco, just for horror instead. You have the exploration/setup of the plot for the movie/film/thing, the reveal that things are a bit less kosher than they seemed, and then all hell can break loose and the way the game turned out can decide the outcome of the “party.” Any takers? Yes? No? Bueller?
1 game of Seasons, 2 rounds of Takenoko and 3 rounds of 7 wonders with a game of Love Letter on top, rounded off a great board game day. The bamboo was only knocked over once and the dice let me down every time, XD

An epic defense @Gencon 2014 by my 11 year old son using Vadar, after my A-Wing rolled 3 crits at close range. He went on to win the game handily. He later scored a night cap win by disintegrating my Slave I with a 4 hit proton torpedo strike, which I came up empty on my defense roll.
While admittedly humbled, it was a proud moment to have my son beat me soundly at a game we both love.
