We’ve always said our Beta deck was going to be open for improvements and changes, and after countless games during our demo campaign this summer, we’re ready to formally announce and release our first update to your beta packs.
It’s actually nothing majorly huge or anything, and has an interesting and direct influence on the game duration. We’ve noticed that having two “Spirit of the Vengeful Liver” items in a playing deck, although fun and vengeful, can make games last a long time. Our personal record was 3:30 hours. This might not be ideal for everyone. We’ve recently been doing games with only one “Liver”, and immediately we noticed game play went down to around 45 minutes to 1:20 hours. More recently we’ve even tested without any livers, and games last no more than 40 minutes.
So, as our first ever update, here’s a way to influence your maximum game times, depending on how many ‘Spirit of the Vengeful Liver’ cards you use in the item deck:
2 Livers = Longest games, more than 1:30 hours
1 Liver = Medium games, 0:45 – 1:20
No Livers = Short games, less than 0:40 minutes (no guts, no glory!)
Hope this helps make some of your BaRPG games even more fun. If we have any more major changes to announce, we’ll be sure to let you know again.
Until then, keep questing you fine BaRPGers!
