The Malachite Crown is one of the biggest and grandest casinos in all of Vegas. There is at least a cool fifty million in the vault at all times, with more cash coming in as suckers gamble their life savings.
The casino has a darker side though: The mob runs the show, and the entire operation is a money laundering scheme, with cash coming in from the usual suspects of rackets, with pimps turning in protection and drug money piling high in their vaults.
For some of you, you want revenge against the criminals. For others, you just want to play Robin Hood. Some of you want money for yourself, and some of you are thrill seekers. Either way you have gathered together for one reason: To pull the biggest heist in the history of Sin City.
Welcome to Storium 102! Don’t worry, this is not the second class in a series, but just another beginner game. In this game you will play as criminals in the style of Ocean’s 11, and in the process get an overview of how Storium works. In the full course you will learn:
-How to make a character-How the various types of cards work, including neutral cards-How challenges work, including special rules a narrator might add to challenges-How to strategize and work challenges using the game and card rules of Storium-How to ignore the game and let this be a collaborative writing experience.
Beginners be warned: Many Beginner games are more “drop in, drop out” allowing for you to get your feet wet and see if Storium is for you. While those games are good and have their place, I generally design mine to have a more direct story and a thought process to teach the players.
If you do not want to stick around for a full game, this may not be the game for you.
