On this TableTop Thursday we’re featuring the kickstarted Card Game “Machine of Death” a Kickstarter game that has come to fruition! Brian Smawley will be lending B&B his copy of the game to play. Want to know more? Check out the official webpage here!
In the world of our game, there exists a machine (the titular Machine of Death) that can issue people little cards: deathpredictions. Nobody knows just how it works, but it’s always, always right. (You may recognize this concept from our #1 bestselling short story collection, which is also titled, COINCIDENTALLY, Machine of Death.)
The book was about exploring the existential ramifications of the existence of the machine in worlds otherwise much like our own. It’s a thoughtful, sometimes funny, sometimes sad, meditation on fate.
The GAME is about flinging SHARKS from CATAPULTS in order to kill imaginary people. It’s basically a game of Mousetrap or a Road Runner cartoon, except that it’s TOTALLY WITHIN THE RULES to create a QUICKSAND GENERATOR in a TREEHOUSE in order to DROWN A CHILD. (That was a real game we played.)
