So, I recently started playing Matteo Rinci's new(ish) game, Citywide
. It's me and two other people, which is admittedly on the low side for playing (I don't have the book with me at the moment, but I'm pretty sure Matteo says that 4-6 is the sweet spot, right?).
Is anyone else playing?
If so, what's awesome about the game?
While we're on the topic, what's confusing about it?
I'm playing a guy named Django, who's got some strong activist/anarchist leanings. I chose the Sympathy | Judgment dichotomy for him, and it's my goal to max out both of them. I know we're not really
supposed to pre-play those dichotomies, but I see him as someone who feels the suffering of his friends really deeply, and offers no forgiveness in seeking justice on their behalf. Batman meets protest kid.
We're confused about how to start the game without "contra-intentions" but still have them emerge during play. Is it a slow-burn thing, or do we look to find them as soon as scene one starts? Contra-intentions are the most confusing part of the game for me, partially because what they are
is never really explained.
Tell me about your experiences!
