Description

In gaming mechanic, this game is a mashup between 1000 Blank White Cards and Scattergories. It uses Piecepack for scorekeeping, generation of the length of time available in a round, and generation of the target letter. Participants are asked to generate their own list of possible categories and then, during timed gameplay, must generate only one item that properly fits the category which starts with a randomly selected target letter. Participants receive points for unique, correct answers on their answer sheet. The participant with the most points in a round wins the round. The goal of the game is to win the most rounds.

Reviews and Comments

First Piecepack Drinking Game

This is a nice attempt to reappropriate the public domain mechanics of such party games as Scattergories and Facts in Five. Nothing really fundamental here, but an innovative use of a scoring track that compares well to the vaunted use of Icehouse pyramids for the same purpose. Flawed but innovative initial alphabetic letter selection mechanic using piecepack dice (for example, the letter T gets rolled about twice too often -- math available on request -- but it's still a pretty nifty mechanic). Innovative variants combining the game with Apples to Apples, Cards Against Humanity, and so on. Worth a spin, especially if you enjoy party games.
