The Lifeboat Game

So, there’s a classic party game I will occasionally crack out called the Lifeboat Game. It’s one of those ones that only really works if very few people have played it before as it’s all about working stuff out. Anyway, on a quiet Friday, I thought I’d see how far I can get it to work on DiS. Probably not very far.

So, the way the game works is this:

We’ve all been on a ship that is sinking, but there is a lifeboat we can escape on. However, to get on the lifeboat, you must offer to bring an object with you. I will tell you if the object is acceptable or not. Players have to work out what is acceptable. The last person to twig loses. For realism’s sake, you can drink every time you’re denied.

THIS IS GOING TO BE A DISASTER.

But I’ll start us off. I’m going to bring aboard a hammer.

ACCESS: GRANTED!
