Robots. They're indespensible in today's day and age. But it's a bit of a pain when they go on a murderous rampage, infiltrating human societieis, posing as us to take us out one by one. I mean, rude. But that's just what's happening in Are You A Robot?, a new card game coming soon from Looney Labs.
From the website:
Our space colony has been infiltrated by murderous androids who look just like us. We are gradually being replaced by
look-alikes! The only way to find out for sure if someone is a robot is by shooting them with your laser pistol. Our only hope is to destroy the robots one by one!
Each player gets a random card, which they must look at but let no one else see. Gameplay consists of talking: asking each other questions to figure out who became a Robot. Players can say anything: lying is part of the game. The game ends when a Human decides to either shoot or shake hands! Humans prosper if they correctly shoot the Robot but the Robots win if humans turn on each other. Peace can be achieved by a handshake but sneaky Robots have an iron grip...
