Joy! Joy! Chocolypse

2009 Jun 8

Aside from finishing Murderland reviews, I’m working on a “proof of concept / demo” version of Transantiago that you can play just using a printed PDF gameboard (black and white) and the tokens from Zombie Cinema. Thematically, the game is like Nine Worlds + Candyland. My working title is “Joy! Joy! Chocolypse.”

The plot goes something like this: Everything was wonderful in the Lollyswirl System until scientists determined that the medium-sized Lemon Drop Sun was about to expand to become a massive Chocolate Giant! Now, as ambassadors from the various confectionery planets, you must travel to neighboring worlds along the Rainbow Roads, attempting to rally all the alien peoples of Lollyswirl against the impending chocolypse. However, each planet has its own problems to deal with, which you must solve before you can count on that world’s support.
