We played the Shab-al-Hiri Roach at NC GameDay on Saturday and it went great with seven players! I had my doubts. I can’t really put it any better than Mr. Eric Provost:

“There was so much crazyness you can’t get it into a single bottle. There was an explicit pecking order of roaches at one point with the canine ‘Klaus’ at the top of the order. (The power of Klaus compells you!) There were holgraphic & mezmerizing lightshows gone wrong, there were board meetings that were staffed by Klaus, faceless men, and angry young girls. There was the replacement of the Catholic Church on campus with a Sumerian Temple. Which was built, by the way, with a vast number of slaves… all infected with the Roach. And then there was my own personal favorite… Regina Sutton as Barbarella, complete with Sumerian Death Ray Gun. Yes.”

It was a very strange game even by Roach standards!

    7 people! Great leapin’ roaches!

    Seriously, though, that’s pretty awesome. As you know, I found it chaotic with 6. How many folks had played previously? How long did it take? How many scenes did you average per event?

    Er, sorry for the questioning, but I am impressed and a little in awe.

    Hi Jon,

    If I recall correctly we did it in four hours.

    All but two had played previously and all but one were die-hard nar-lovin’ Forge-heads. Everybody got one scene per event, but usually 1-2 people passed, or had a very minor no-conflict scene.

    I tried to keep it moving and it was just fine, to my surprise.
