Graham “The Devil” Walmsley challenged me to write a game about a song. I accepted and he told me my song was some Kurt Weill nonsense that demonstrated his deeply flawed taste, so I wrote a little game based on John Gay’s 1728 Beggar’s Opera, which is pretty funny and cool. Does it work? I do not know. I should put in a rule requiring the narrator to mock Robert Walpole. Note how easy it would be to turn this into a contemporary Baltimore gangster drama.
