Food Fight: Game

Food Fight: Game

This game first appeared in The Dragon magazine issue #44 and was also released as part of The Best of Dragon Magazine Games boxed set. This is a wargame representation of a school cafeteria food fight. The players control a student each with an action-point allowance and an appearance rating which determine how much food that can be absorbed before being out. Characters that are better at attacking generally also have a lower threshold for absorbing damage. There are also six staff members who try to apprehend the students. The game also has details for multiple types of foods with various ratings for each projectile's range, slipperiness (used when they land on the floor), to-hit values, and damage numbers. All results are determined with a simple d6 roll, and you can even send an entire tray flying with or without food, and cafeteria tables may be flipped over for even more mayhem. The combat chart lists 30 food types, each with three different attack modes and seven ratings for each. There is an accuracy modification chart included. $10.00 USD
