One has always stuck with the familiar and more traditional miniature gaming. Now my wife has left me and I'm now nearly 70 it seems rather exciting to 'spice things up a little'. as they say and try a little Fantasy gaming.

Has anyone ever thought of a game set in an Ivy League College. Perhaps with the Professors playing against each other to round up or catch as many rogue students. I'm not sure where one could take the scenario from there.

Anyone have any ideas?

Best regards,

I haven't had that particular idea, but Ganesha Games has a supplement for their Fear & Faith horror skirmish game called "Kooky Teenage Monster Hunters" that gives you the Buffyverse (more or less), which without the horror element, is basically a school setting.

Or you can have factions of students competing against each other a la Harry Potter. Add magic, monsters and fantastical elements to taste.

Hmm. You're sure that's fantasy? It sounds very much like my graduate school, where the graduate students were serfs, and the undergraduate were cattle. The departments raided each other, and the professors within a department were like border reavers nominally on the same side, but all trying to loot the same village. The administration and department heads tried to keep it within bounds.

I'd say just add supernatural means of gathering students.
