ROBBERS ROBBING ROBBERS
Robbers Robbing Robbers is a crowd card game I designed with Blake Andrews for Store2 at Babycastles. The rules are essentially an extremely pared-down interpretation of Egyptian Ratscrew but with two significant twists to make the game work in a social space. The first twist is the inclusion of special player poses to account for the fact that card games are typically not played standing. The poses essentially make one player act as a table and the other as a dealer. The second twist is the fact that each encounter between two players culminates in a physical struggle that usually deforms or destroys the cards, disrupting the order and perfection that a new deck of cards implicitly represents.
