Danger the Game

Party games, you know they come often. Story telling, a difficult mechanic to bring to the table when A. You have a really uncreative group of friends. B. The game falls flat which doesn’t install creativity. Or C. There are other story telling games that do it better. But what if I said, danger.. impressed me? 

Danger the game is 30+ minute game for 3 or more players. This can happen by saving the player, or judge, in a dangerous situation through skills and tools and objecting other players heroic tales to win the judges choice. It’s great for family, great for party night. Let’s see it. 

What I don’t like.

Plot twists are a great way for the game to challenge your skills and tools. However, sometimes, I felt the plot twists don’t really work in relation to some of the situations. Which may not be the most terrible thing in the world, but if it might be your only shot at getting a win, you’d be out of luck.

What I like.

This game brings players a solid game of story telling, the depth of story creation using mechanical metaphors, plot twists, interactive plot lines, and scene construction. The crutch of the objective gives the victim something to build off while the skills and tools gives the heroes more to piggy back off. It’s a perfect adaptation of storytelling because you have a these great situations to really work with. Each dangerous situation can be solved with every skill and tool, whether it’s actually good or not, because everything is detailed enough to speak for itself. The art direction is one of my favorites for this type of game because it’s so simple, we get to painr the picture, not the other way around. A few more qualities game length  and pacing, Plot twists and objections, objection handling and interrogation–these are all very fun interactive opportunities to bring the night together.

Final thoughts

This is by far my favorite party game. It’s available for the whole family. It’s a storytelling game is a great crutch to move the non-creative along. It gives players a chance to object situations and sting players with a plot twist and it is just generally fun.
