Coup [Hey another one] [Canned]

Postby Bluedetroyer » Sat Dec 15, 2018 8:17 am

In a dystopian future where corrupt corporations struggle for dominance over one another, six in particular are close to global power. They must call upon the skills of a few influential people, to kill, to steal, to gather information, and to vanquish the enemy. Who will survive and who is destined to be forgotten? It'll all to be determined, here, in...

COUP


How to play:
Spoiler: The game contains 15 cards (five different types, with three of each) and an arbitrarily large enough amount of coins- we'll say, 72,421. Two coins and two cards are distributed to each player. The remaining coins go to the center, and the remaining cards go into the "Court Deck".
Each player knows their own cards' identities, but none of any other player. Players take turns doing one of several actions (listed below). Some actions can be performed by anyone, while others can only be taken out if you have a certain type of card- or if you claim to have a certain type of card.
At any point in the game, you can lie about the cards you have and take any action. You can lie about being a contessa to block being assassinated, you can lie about being an ambassador to block someone stealing from you, and you can even lie about being an assassin in order to kill another player. The sky is the limit, as long as you don't claim a role that already has three of it discarded. (I mean, technically you can still do that. It'd just be really stupid.)
That's not to say there's no risk to the lying. If a player doesn't have the card they claimed to have, and is challenged by another player about it, they automatically must discard a card of their choice. However, if the challenged player actually did have the card they claimed to have, they discard that one and take a new card from the Court Deck, while the player who challenged them discards a card without replacing it. If a player loses both of their cards, they're dead, forever. Last player left alive is the winner.


List of actions:
Spoiler: Income- take one coin from the middle. Cannot be blocked. No role must be specified.
Foreign aid- take two coins from the middle. Can be blocked by Duke. No role must be specified.
Coup- pay seven coins to make any player discard one card. Cannot be blocked. No role must be specified. If you have 10 or more coins on your turn, you must coup someone.
Tax- take three coins from the middle. Cannot be blocked. Done by Duke.
Stealing- take two coins from any other player. Can be blocked by Captain or Ambassador. Done by Captain.
Murder!- pay three coins to assassinate a player, making them discard a card. Can be blocked by a Contessa. Done by Assassin.
Exchange - take two cards from the top of the Court Deck and add them to your hand. Then put any two cards from your hand back in the Court Deck. Then I will shuffle the Court Deck. Done by Ambassador.

The roles (there's three total of each):
Spoiler: Ambassador- can do the good take card boy action. Blocks stealing.
Assassin- can do a murder. Can't block anything.
Captain- can steal. Blocks stealing.
Contessa- blocks the murdering.
Duke- can tax. Blocks foreign aid


Some clarifications (ECO):
Spoiler: Players are allowed to not reveal a card they have if they are challenged on it, if they want to go for a long con.
If an Ambassador is called out and they reveal an Ambassador, they get to take one more card from the deck than they would have (but must keep the same amount of cards they would have)
If there are no cards in the Court Deck, and someone needs to draw a card, then and only then will the discard pile be shuffled in to the deck.
When Assassins kill and Captains steal, only the victims can challenge their claims; when Ambassadors or Captains block stealing, Dukes block foreign aid, or Contessas block assassination, only the original action taker can challenge; and when Ambassadors take cards or Dukes tax, anyone can challenge.
If a Contessa claim is challenged and was incorrect, the Contessa claim loses both their cards if they have both- one for not being a Contessa, and then one for the assassination. The same thing happens if an Assassin claim is called out and they reveal the Assassin.
If an Assassin tries to assassinate a Contessa and does not challenge them, they do not get their three coins back.


How we'll do this:
Spoiler: I'll PM the contestants their roles, then randomize a turn order. In the normal game, challenges can only happen right after someone takes their turn, but because of time restraints, you have until your turn next turn to challenge or block someone. On the honor system, please don't base challenges off of things that happened after the said turn was taken.
Additionally, assassinations and coups must be resolved immediately before anyone takes their next turn. Also, if someone challenges someone else, no one should go until that is resolved.
If you are challenged, respond by either doing /reveal the card that was asked for or /reveal a card to discard if you were lying (or want to keep your other card).


Other:
Spoiler: To join, just post /in or something like that. If you want you can give a brief company description, and why yours is so much cooler than all the others.
Once you get your roles, just shoot me a PM to confirm that you got them.
Please bold all actions. You don't have to say the name of the action you're doing, but make it clear which one it is
Good example: Aaaaaas the Duke, I take three.
Bad example: /3
Good example: I don't think you're the Duke!
Bad example: nah
Good example: uhm,,, ACTUALLY, you stupid batstard idiot man, I am the Captain AS WELL, SO you aren't able to do the steal from me., ;))
Bad example: plsnu
Keep in mind that discussion between players is one of the most important aspects of the game- half the fun is seeing who allies with who, which teams work out, etc. This is a political power struggle at heart, so don't be afraid to manipulate as much as you can.
If it's been your turn, or you've had to discard something, or something like that, for 12 hours, that's a prod. 12 more hours is a replacement. 3 prods will also be a replacement.
All communication must be done in-thread. No whispering mechanic is in play, and no outside communication is allowed.
Please don't be a douche
