Alert Decrypto

I'm not sure if there is anyone left around here that is interested in playing games, but if we can get 4 to 8 people (at least 6 would be ideal) then we can try our hand at Decrypto. I think this would be a great forum game. :yup: I will send out some PMs and try to round up some of the usual suspects.

Decrypto is a team game where one member of the team tries to get the other members of the team to guess a code based on three public clues. At the same time they don't want to give too much information to the opposing team who will get a chance to get the code right as well based on what they can guess about the other teams code words.

Here is a how to play video of the actual game.

Here is a play by forum game in progress at BGG: Decrypto PBF #1 | Decrypto | BoardGameGeek

Please sign up here if you are interested in playing!

Feel free to recruit others.

The game will be played in two equal teams. Any preferences on how we pick teams? I can do it random, or you guys can pick somehow.

OK, we will kick it off with six. :yup: It is a good number.

Here are the randomly determined teams.

Team ATeam B
slimshadylisarea
ceptimusLimoncello
Kaelerimir

:drudgesiren: FIRST order of business is for each team to choose a team name. (I don't want to call you Team A and Team B the whole time.)

In the spoiler are the basic rules of the game. I'm trying to keep them simple so all info may not be here. I will let know what you need to do at each step as we play.



I will send out team keys and post the encryptor order once we have team names! :eager:

You realise that when you ask us for team names, you're inviting us to come up with the most confusing names possible? So I suggest the following possibilities for Team A.
  • Team B
  • The other team
  • They also
  • One of the teams
  • No one
  • Everybody
  • Both teams

You should of course adopt smilies as the team names.

Oh smilies would be a good idea. :) If you want you can pick a team smiley or name. I will send out the keys and the code to the first encryptors and we can kick things off with or without official names.

Here is the official score board.

 Team ATeam B

Kael and erimir will be our first encryptors. I will send them round 1 codes and then they should each devise three clues for the code based on their team's key.

Then PM the clues to me.

I think we should be called something long and lurid, so Cmurb has to type it out a lot. Like "Mother May I Sleep with Danger" or "Lambada: The Forbidden Dance." Or the complete text of Milton's sonnet "I did but prompt the age" because there is no rule against it.

If we want to go with a smiley, the only ones I know how to work are :leafguy: :welcome3: and :lolstossel:
