Help me brainstorm ideas for Event cards. I need a number of challenges for tributes to overcome that would require the use of Strength, Agility, or Wit skills. Sometimes the reward is food and other times the reward is not taking damage. Here are some examples:
Agility: Backpack in Cornucopia, Rickety Bridge, Forest Fire Strength: Climb for tree fruit, Wrestle a Bear, Battle the Frog Monster, Swim out of a whirlpool Wit: Find Water, Pick Edible Berries, Build Fire, Escape Labyrinth
Avoid a approaching hovercraft- agility. Deliver homing beacon to the watch tower- wit(all other tributes take damage?) I forget which other year it was but there was a kid who got high and attacked two tributes? Maybe a challenge to fend off a teammate? -strength
Does it have to be only one type of stat? Any choices involved?
For example: Peacekeeper Patrol Wit: Hide from the peacekeeper, lowest roll takes damage. Note: Even if there is a successful Str roll, lowest Wit roller still takes damage. OR Str(much higher number): Kill the peacekeeper, gaining food off of him. Failed rolls automatically take damage.
Another event: Sponsor Supply Drop! Agi: Highest roll gains (X) food.
Something low key: Round of Blackjack: Wit: Lowest roll loses (X) food, highest roll gains (X) food.
Hey I know that there's a group event in which everyone has to attempt individually, but I still like the idea of an event challenge in which the team as a whole has to defeat a card or they all take damage. Similar to how everyone had to help defeat pods or run the risk of everyone taking a hit.

OOO Stacking on Morris's idea: What if it's a "gang up on a tribute" group activity, where first roll is to determine victim (lowest roll is the victim-OR highest, if you wanna play like you're ganging up on a strong force to be reckoned with!) and the other players then re-roll to get a combined total (or average) to try and kill them off/inflict damage?
Then, either the victim just deals with the consequences since they rolled the unlucky roll to begin with, OR they can then get as many rolls as the group to try and defend themself.
Walltur: Mmk, I can see that now

Vester Lombard: Beating a seeker in the 4th is pretty huge. Each IP is essentially erasing the effect of one of their successful searches.

Quinn Starling: Yeah, I would have hit Ginger more if I thought she'd rest up or if you'd heal her. But I figured that you guys would maybe leave her at 2 since that was her max, especially since we decided to stay inujurred, too Lol
Mar 17, 2016 16:36:34 GMT
Quinn Starling: We planned back between periods 2-3 to consider staying injured if we got to -3 again, to waste any coming beatings. If you aim for low DCs, have enough skill to make up for the IP, AND get lucky, it's sometimes worth it to keep the damage & keep rolling
Mar 17, 2016 17:34:53 GMT
Vester Lombard: I think in the 2nd period you definitely have to rest. 3rd period, maybe, pending your team strategy. 4th period, probably not.

Sprye Tatel: In the interest of not adding a new post each day to the Space Debate threads, would we be interested in sharing ideas via Google Docs? tinyurl.com/zlk8sb3

Quinn Starling: I'm in favor of death penalty for illegal pretty floral bonnets. I think that needs to be an argument that happens Lol
Mar 21, 2016 13:54:41 GMT
Walltur: Pro, but under the argument that all viewers of the bonnet be executed, rather than the wearer. Deadly illegal bonnets
Mar 22, 2016 4:16:02 GMT
Quinn Starling: Depends on how pretty. We'd need a numerical rating scale, to start. Any bonnet rated 6 or over (by 2/3 vote of galactic council) is determined "pretty" and a single flower may be defined as "floral." Any fixture worn upon the head may serve as "bonnet."
Mar 22, 2016 15:54:13 GMT
Quinn Starling: (that's on a scale of 1-10) And I'd be against death penalty for illegal ones (unregistered, obtained illegally, etc.) Jail sentencing and community work are appropriate, but not death penalty. Too extreme.
Mar 22, 2016 15:56:18 GMT
Vester Lombard: While I am against the death penalty for pretty floral bonnets, I do think that all people who have encountered the bonnet should have their brains slightly melted. I think this would both save lives and prevent any risk of spreading that fashion
Mar 22, 2016 16:25:34 GMT
Sprye Tatel: Again with the slightly-melting brains proposal? Seems very convenient for the Muppet-race; who can re-grow/stuff brain cells! Whose pocket are you in? Who is pulling your strings!?
Mar 22, 2016 17:16:41 GMT
Sprye Tatel: I say that the punishment should fit the crime: The penalty for Pretty Floral Bonnet's (PFB's) should be death by PFB!

Quinn Starling: I have found my people. This is where I belong <3

Walltur: Any games coming down the pipe? Online practice game of Cornucopia?

Vester Lombard: If you guys want we could try doing some online Galactic Debate. It would lose a bit of the spontaneous improv element when played on the forum, but maybe it could at least help figure out which cards are fun or boring.

Quinn Starling: We could schedule a "live" session and either skype or have the speaker type up their response within a certain time frame. So, speaker says they're free at 9pm. At 8:55 they're given their topic, then they have from 9:00-9:05 to type up their platform...?
