It was hard to miss Gameworthy Labs‘ booth at CT FIG, seeing as they were dressing in togas and had a GIANT banner. It’s no wonder they won the Most Spirit award at the end of the day. Of course their game, Oh My Gods!, also was a runner-up for Best in Show. I’ll be going more in-depth with the game soon, as a review copy is on its was to my doorstep, but I’ll give you a quick overview.
It’s like Guess Who on steroids.
Well, not really. That would do a disservice to the game. What it is is a clever deduction game with a bit of bluffing and strategy tossed in. One of the Greek gods has stolen Zeus’ bolt, and it’s up to the players to figure out who. This involves trying to figure out what the other players have in their hands, cleverly using your Gods’ powers to stack the deck in your favor, and finally guessing who the hidden thief is.
I played a quick demo game at the show, which had a limited roster of gods to play with and played in around 5 minutes. It was a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to dig into the full game with all it has to offer!
