Hearts Blazing CardPG
Jim likes Hearts Blazing because he's spent plenty of nights recapping his favorite sci-fi TV shows already, and turning that into a game is amazing.
Hearts Blazing is a casual storygame for 3 to 5 players who have a love of episodic fiction and about 1 to 2 hours. After generating a fiction setting together, players take on the roles of dynamic but recognizable spec-fic archetypes.
Drawing episode frameworks from a plotline deck, players collaboratively create an episodic epic of conflict and romance. By bidding clichés on each episode they capture keywords associated with their hidden motivations and compete to see who has final say on the fate of their story.
