I would make one on my own but im not sure how to put the concept into the gameplay. If anyone does after reading this, please make sure all games are escalating so I can join, I hate flat rate and no spoils
To be properly done, it would need to allow 5 players to gang up on one.
First way is to simulate the districts.
You could a)single signups place the highest ranked people who join in district 1 together, etc. - this works well at giving the lower numbers better chance at victory
b)single signups - players choose which district they want to represent - this is the story-telling/roleplaying approach, since you will have to intorduce players to the world for this to be a meaningful decision
c)single signups- random placement/not representing districts at all - the most fine tuned for gameplay, but at the sacrifice of story
d)double signups - players join as a team - obviously has some MAJOR implications done the road
I imagine this could work like the mystery door series. (although I think that is the most brilliant tournament design since sexual reproduction, so I always say that) If you are serious about running this, pm me. i would be willing to run it with you or at least help with a lot of the setup.
