We like role playing here at Geek & Sundry so much that sometimes, we can’t wait for the next gaming session to roll around. Sometimes, we can’t even wait long enough to pick up a pen and paper. That’s when we sit down together (or just yell from wherever we are) and play a quick game of Scenarios.
Scenarios is exactly like it sounds: one person makes up a scenario and somebody else has to find a solution. There’s a twist, though. In each scenario, the scenario master includes three objects that must be used when completing the objective. These objects can be as helpful as gun in a sword fight or as useless as a baked potato in a maelstrom. Regardless, you still have to find a way to use them. Fortunately, there’s No One Correct Answer (there are wrong answers though).
A few weeks back, we posted our first Scenario, and after kicking it around for a bit, decided to send you guys another one. Check out the Scenario below and let us know how you would solve it.
You’re stranded on an island in the middle of the ocean. The island is fairly small, about the size of a baseball field, and has a dense patch of shrubs and a few trees in the middle. There’s no visible source of fresh water and as far as you know, there’s no one else on the island. Also, the ocean has been turned to Jello. You find that when you step onto the newly gelatinous sea, your foot sinks into the jello and you have to work to pull it up, so you can’t just walk across. How do you escape?
You have to use:
- A totem that turns into a goat (just a regular goat)
- 25 feet of rope
- A red ballpoint pen
How would you solve this week’s scenario? Let us know in the comments below!
