    Contraband Game - Sign-up and Information Thread

    Contraband Game


    The "Contraband Game" is a game of team play. Two teams face off against each other. The "Northern Country" and the "Southern Country". In this game, it is your job to smuggle money out of the opposing country, while preventing money to be leaked out of your own.

    Good, I think I mentioned everything. There's not much left to add anyway. If I can give you just a few tips for the upcoming game. This may sound obvious, but make sure you have someone one your team who will count your money. I'm serious, I will post the result of the smuggle attempts but I'm not gonna mention whether a team bought the dealer/officer. Believe me, it will be a lot easier if you have someone like that on your team. Next, the rules state that this CB game will last for 10 games, or(!) until one team has successfully smuggled all their money from the opponents country. If you look at it from another POV it means that if a team has run out of money they lose. What I mean is that this game could possibly end a lot sooner than you expect and not even reach 5 games if played out correctly. And my last tip for all future players would be: "There are a lot more possibilities for bluffing in this game than you might think at first glance. Keep that in mind when planning your strategy."

    That's it. I hope you'll have fun playing this game, keep it clean, respect your fellow players and may the best team win!

    Awesome game (atleast was in Liar Game) but awfully complicated,I'll need to study the rules in more detail before I can decide wheter I have the needed time or not.

    If you've read liar game then you have the rules. This game is the same only with a couple adjustments. The biggest change is the possibility to buy the dealer/officer.

    Like I told DD, it's the same as in the manga. I actually simplified the process where to bring the concept back to the original aspect of smuggling money and not doing all kinda crazy stunts (if you've read the manga you know what I mean). If everyone agrees on it I could organize a demo game for demonstrational purposes.

    People smuggle money and people have to prevent that money from being smuggled. Have you read Liar Game?

    It's starts in volume 4 of Liar Game so if you start reading Liar Game now you're bound to catch up by the time this game's gonna start. I really recommend it. If you liked Minority Rule, you're gonna love Contraband Game.

    Because the Mafia Game is still easier to understand despite that

    I still don't understand the concept of the Smuggler-Inspector face off. Will questions be asked? Or is it simply the Inspector randomly deciding "Pass" or "Doubt"?

    No, no and no. Mafia game has like, 20 different roles plus all those avatar with names and whatnot. In this game, a player from one team withdraws a certain amount of money and a player from the other team has to guess that amount. How is that hard to understand? But to make this game more than just guessing numbers, I added the possibility to buy the dealer/officer. That's it. What else is there not to understand?

    It's not random. If you buy the dealer you know the exact amount the smuggler is carrying, if you buy the officer you know three numbers one of which is the correct sum. That is definitely not random.

    And what would be the point in asking questions? It's not like the smuggler is gonna tell you how much money he is carrying or anything.

    Re: Contraband Game - Sign-up and Information Thread

    Actually this one really is lot more complex than mafia. As in the core of the game. The roles, the avatars are just extra, surface of the game that sometimes confuse a new player, but really the game is the same without them. Contraband deals with (big) numbers and the opening post does feel the content of the SMuggler/Inspector interaction a little vague.

    Not that Contraband is awfully diffucult either, and is also based on guessing, but I do think it is tad bit more complex than mafia.

    Re: Contraband Game - Sign-up and Information Thread

    Truth is, I copied 90% from the original series' explanation because I felt that'd be the easiest way to understand it for a newcomer. I'm thinking more and more for making a demonstrational game before the real one.

    I actually think a demo game would be good idea. Fastest way to learn is by playing.
