    An Ashes-Themed Gwent game would be amazing. For anyone who doesn't know what Gwent is, I feel sorry for you that you never played The Witcher 3.

    Some form of poker, dice game (like Yahtzee) and dominoes... with a creative AoC twist of course. :smiley:

    Awari (variation on Mancala). I played it in Quest for Glory 3 endlessly.

    How about a horse racing type game using some small weird animals so it could be in the corner of the tavern?

    Would also be fun if IS came up with a completely unique game.

    I think it'd be cool if the different races have different tavern games (and spaces to match), like... for the orcs they'd probably have something a bit rowdier like throwing axes to a target, or tug-of-war/arm wrestling.
  • Small arena that has automatic battles taking place between random monsters that we can bet on. I think they had this in a dragon quest game but I honestly can't remember. It was pretty fun but may be hard to organize to prevent cheesing.

    Liar's Dice (PofC) is a fantastic game and I'd love to see that put in. I've been playing Kingdom Come lately as well and think that Farkle could be a fun game to include.

    I just had a TERRIBLE idea.......what if you could capture various animals from around the world (they would have to be smallish and you would have to experiment to discover if they could be trainable or not) and you trained them up to be pit against others (kinda like Pokemon). They could also double as a vanity pet outside of the arena but would do nothing else so you couldn't have them as an attack pet.

    I agree, a table top card card game would be awesome. Having rare cards be loot drops and exclusive ones crafted by scribes.

    A battle pet minigame would be cool. Animal husbandry could breed pets, and tamers could tame them. Loot drops also.

    Those two ideas combined sound like fun to be honest.

    I kinda wanna stay away from any pet/Pokemon battles and kinda stick with the traditional games like... card games (poker), dice games, darts, etc.

    Was thinking about having portable game tables that could be used for games. Most likely to be used just outside tavern but could be something to be put in someones Housing unit. Matter of fact if you had enough games that could be the theme of your housing. That way you could invite friends over for a few games of darts or whatever games they put in game. Baord games are lots of fun but have not been so popular since online gaming exploded. But mini games could actually be really popular.

    One game mechanic I would like to mention is if part of the game included rolling dice and your toon acutally had a dice cup and shook it around a little bit then rolled their dice that would be pretty immersive.

    Pool Tables and pinball machines could work. There are actually lots real games that have come out over the years that could be put in a tavern. Pinball and Pool have been around since the days of the Atari 2600 hundred. Not sure how expensive this might be or how it would affect the game engine.

    Also be cool if there were leader boards for such games as applicalble.

  • A version of Dejarik (Star Wars chess game) with AOC monsters would be cool.
  • Drinking contest between 2 or more players; Darts; Reversi; Connect Four; a form of Billiard
  • Chess!

    But as an added bonus, the playing pieces and the board are determined by the progression, theme and race architecture of the respective node of the tavern you're playing inside.

    For example; if you're inside a tavern in a military-orc metropolis then the pieces are made from iron and resemble orc warriors clad in armor brandishing weapons and board is painted on a broken shield!

    But if you're in, say, a humble elven town, the pieces are craved from wood and just closely resemble modest elven hunters and mages with the board being just a simple cloth mat.

    I would love to see a few different types of games like those listed below (Darts, Cards, Dice etc). It would also be good to make sure a tavern cant have every single type of game. i think it would be awesome for tavern owners to build the required table/activity but have maybe 2 slots limited to games for each tavern to encourage people to travel to different taverns to play different games. Agree that a qwent type card game with cards being obtained and tradable through normal play would be awesome.
  • Ax throwing > darts.
  • Poker is a must , Tiddlywinks ( the old French version ) , Chess ofcourse

    Be nice, but that would be a lot of extra work for the team. Maybe as an expansion idea down the line.

    For now I think we might have to be limited to cards.

    Hnefatafl would be a cool addition, basically viking chess.
