No Scripts???

Postby 2coolbaby » March 19th, 2005, 8:42 pm

I have a lot of people ask me how our games can possibly work with no scripts. The fact is that our games work so much better then scripted games. Scripted games are stilted and leave no room for your guests to take their character anywhere. After you play an unscripted game you will never want to do a scripted one again.

The trick is in our character creation process. We create our characters where they have backgrounds. When you read your characters sheet you will know who you know in the game, why you know them & what schemes you may have going on. Everything ties in together. The you will get a second sheet that tells you what secrets you have that you don't want others to know. (There may be other characters that know your secrets and choose to use that knowledge as leverage in whatever way they choose to). Then you get a list of secrets you know about other people. (Again you can use this info in so many interesting ways). You will know why you know these secrets too. It is all intwined with your background. Then lastly you will get a list of things you need to do. You do these in the way you want to. These actions are written for a reason. Mostly to create more conflict in the game :twisted:

With this information your guests can play their character in any way they want. You will find out how sneaky and imaginative your guests really are. Some people worry that there guests will have no imagination and that the party will flop. This will not happen. I have hosted MANY of these parties & not one party has ever flopped & not one guest had no imagination, no matter how shy they are. I think human instinct takes over once they get past the nervousness of doing something new. Here is an example:

If someone comes up to you and tries to blackmail you for something it is up to you to decide how you want to handle it. Do you give in? Do you hire someone to take them out or do it yourself? Do you dig up dirt on them to get them to back down? Do you threaten them? Each person will decide this on their own and whatever choice they make will create more drama. Who knows where their decision is going to lead them. What new conflicts, what new schemes?

Characters will form partnerships. 2 characters who seem to not be very acquantined may be secretly plotting your downfall! Your guests are only limited by their imagination and if you worry that they may not have any, you will be very surprised by what they come up with.

Hope this helps and if anyone has played our games I would appreciate their feedback here so others can learn first hand about the pleasurable experience of playing an unscripted game.

Hi Mary--

You mention that people are concerned about playing the games without any script. I had never hosted any sort of social event outside of family when I decided to have a Murder At The Four Deuces. I had been to a scripted MM dinner, and while it was fun, it was pretty stiff, with people reading their sheets like actors learning a part. At my party, this mixed gathering of people, many of them strangers, didn't take long to get into their parts, and it was hilarious. I found that the more outgoing attendees pulled the slightly inhibited players right into the game. Even if they hadn't researched their parts too deeply beforehand, they winged it wonderfully, and a year later people are still talking about the fun they had. The men who had dragged their feet about coming to a party like this ended up having the best time of all. Several of them approached me after the game and asked about another one because they wanted to do more with their characters.


If you're worried about people not having imaginations, forget about it. Every adult played makebelieve at one time or another as a kid, and it won't take them long to rediscover that childhood gift for pretending. Just help them out by making the setting fit the game. They'll do the rest.

I learned a few things that I'd do different after the Four Deuces, and now that there's a Four Deuces 2, I get to use my newfound knowledge to make the party even better, and all those people who wanted 'do-overs' will get their chance.

Thanks!

Mary N.

Hey, I recently started playing a game like Fortnite. I tried it on my phone first, and then downloaded it to my computer. I thought it was too long to pump the account myself and ordered a boost https://truecost.gg/fortnite . It really helped me and I think it's a great idea for beginners of the game.
