Round 1W: Archstered/racefan12/Leah/Stephen [FoW]

Post by Aaron Brock » Sun Jun 06, 2021 7:21 pm

Round 1A will feature:

  • Archstered
  • racefan12
  • Leah
  • Stephen


A reminder of the Fog of War rules:

A Fog of War round takes place on a standard five by five grid of 25 squares. Gameplay is as normal, but each player DMs the host with their selections and is in return DM’d with what they have selected. Each player does not know how their opponents are doing, and the full playout and results of the round are not released until the round is completed. Any minigames that may occur afterwards will play out as per normal.

Please send in those Bombs via your preferred methods!

All four are now fully clad in their camo gear, as we prepare to kick off...

Image

In our first completely blind round, one of our longest veterans Archie will face off against newbie Cody, along with Leah and Stephen. What's going to happen is that I'm going to come round to you individually when it is your turn, and let you know which squares are left. You'll then pick that, and I'll reveal what you have found. In order to try and keep things moving as quick as we can, you may nominate the next square you want to pick on your following turn, however this is not a hard lock-in due to the nature of the game. A full breakdown of this round and how it pans out will be provided when the round is over and we have our winner(s)!

Archie will be kicking off... GAME ON!

Cody has a 75% Booster and a minigame, so this could be VERY nice indeed. Let's play TIC TAC DOUGH!

ImageImageImage

ImageImageImage

In this simple game, you can bag a fortune the longer you can stay alive. Six of those squares are cash amounts from £1m to £5m. One of them has the word TIC, another has the word TAC, but there is one Bomb up there. Find the TIC and the TAC before the Bomb, we'll end the game and top up your winnings by a cool £10,000,000! You have the option to bail after each flip, but if you find the Bomb, it's game over!

Good luck Cody, give me your first square! (Or more than that, if you're not thinking of stopping on your first turn or two!)

Solid start really! That's £7.5m before we whack your Booster on, would you like to carry on or stop with that?

If I'd gotten one of the TIC and TAC combo, I'd be more willing to keep going for the other one, but I'll play it safe and stop here.

Can't blame you for that, that's game! Let's see the board...

Square 1 was the danger and Squares 2 & 6 were the power couple! £7,500,000 is lovely haul though, and that gets boosted by 75% to £13,125,000 which takes you to £55,600,000 extending your lead! Take a breather, and we'll see you shortly for the Super Round! :D

Hopefully I keep getting all of my bad luck out of the way on the Discord RtaB and things keep going well here :D
