SUN-02 Shock: Social Science Fiction

Post by Susan » June 7th, 2010, 2:01 pm

We've been playing a lot of Shock: Social Science Fiction at the Seattle Story Games Meetup group and I'm hooked :)

It's very creative - you imagine a whole new world from scratch every time you sit down. It can be an intense game because its core mechanic puts real world issue at the heart of the game. With three players we will have three separate stories about characters that confront these issues. They're all set in this common world so they may or may not intersect "Babel" style. There is no GM so every player will have equal control in the story making process.

Here are a few game summaries from games I've been in at meetup:
Roots and Weeds (my personal favorite)
Slave Gaea
Give Me Slavery or Give Me Death!

I've played a few times, facilitated once, and I'll be facilitating a game in this time slot for two more players. There's a mechanic that allows for a little audience participation so players are welcome to bring along a friend to watch & contribute. It's a good option for the shy or tired significant other to still get in some low-key gaming.

I would like to see this game in action, and really, what better way than to give it a shot. I'll play!

My Sunday 02 is booked, but I saw you posted elsewhere you may run some pick up games, Susan. I've always wanted to try this and you're so enthusiastic about it I probably won't find a better opportunity. I'll keep my eyes and ears open.

You got it Darin. I'll probably run it once as a pick-up in one of the three "-01" slots.
