World Wide Blob 2020Sergey
I was at two Blob events before the virus struck. I am now locked in, just like everyone else.
I want to play me some Blob.
To play the Blob, we usually need:
- a number of tables of 1-4 investigators
- an organizer that tracks who deals damage to the Blob and makes announcements along the way and uses the whiteboard or something for this. There is a common pool of resources on that board, so the organizer needs to keep track of how many things are there. Also, sometimes there are global events that need to be announced.
The problem of being isolated is that you can't come to a place to play the Blob. But! You can use the internet.
- All over the world, there are tables of investigators. There is a Google Sheet that tracks things. Each table designates a table leader who reports to the Google Sheet if there is a change in the common resource, and they keep track of what's going on with the Blob. There is an organizer that looks at numbers to know when to announce global events.
- If laws don't allow you to leave the house and get in groups, use Tabletop Simulator. Or play solitaire, or 2-had solo, or 3-hand solo, or 4-hand solo. We don't judge.
What's missing now?
- Nice looking Google Sheets thingy. There's a crude one: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1HnvFaNAD093ug9mxRbhfWSIKStMnrPOW0GtO2isOo5k/edit?usp=sharing the buttons work for those who have rights to edit
- Blob TTS campaign (check!)
- Matching device to help people who want to play meet groups that need one more person (easy enough with Google Sheets)
- Playtesting the whole shebang (sign-up here: https://forms.gle/xtWuf28iojkZTPFy7).
- Scheduling the date.
- Picking the time: if we start at 2pm UTC, that will mean midnight in Sydney and 6am in San Francisco, but everyone else in between can participate.
