FUJOSHI! Dirty Rotten Shippers! is the working title for the hot new prototype by Meltwater designer and raving malcontent Erin Lee Escobedo, aka yr gal pal Gutter Owl!

FUJOSHI! is a romance and matchmaking card game for 2-4 players. You and your most romance-addled rivals conspire to make seven attractive anime boys (or even g...girls!?) kiss each other for fun and pervertprofit!



At the start of the game, players pick the relationships they want to bet on, then spend their turns scouting, convincing, and cajoling the NPC protagonists to fall for the right partner. Successful pairings score points, and rare pairs score a bonus!



Weird theme aside, this is a middleweight card game that should provide a nice crunchy experience, drawing from inspirations like Argent and Pax Renaissance. You could even call it a dutch-auction based tableau builder, except the tableaus you're building are all neutral NPCS in the middle of the board, and you're trying to bet on which tableaus will synergize the best.

But that's boring, and you're boring, and it's time to kiss the animes.

The latest playtest version of the rules can be found here, and the playtest cards can be found here.

For our maiden voyage, we'll be sending SoftNum, Pseudo, Stelas, and Tekopo into the hot hot boy trenches to duke it out in the name of love. Comments and jeers from the peanut gallery are welcome, of course. Make sure to remind the players that they're wrong and their ships are wrong at every possible opportunity.

Of course, before we can begin, we need a couple votes from our players. Fujos, please report in with your choices:
  • Are we playing Standard Monogamy, Soft Triangles, or full Polyamory?
  • Are we playing with the Yandere variant?
  • Are you ready to go beyond, or were you born to make history?

Sorry for the delay, fujos! Busy day, and had to rejigger some back end stuff. Let's get rolling.



(If you're having trouble reading the cards, you can rightclick and Open Image in New Tab for a better look.)

No gifts in the opening flop, so no coins on Rumors to start. Player order is SoftNum > Pseudo > Stelas > Tekopo.

We start with the Secrets and Betting Phase. In player order, please announce which desire card you're peeking at (e.g. Red Outermost). I'll secretly PM you which card you saw, and then you'll secretly PM back with your three Act 1 ships in ranked order.



Once everyone's done that, we'll start the buying rounds with SoftNum and our boy Red!

SoftNum, which card will you peek at?

SoftNum

I'ma peek at Blue Outer plz.

Card peeks sent! As soon as I get back everyone's shipping charts, we'll get started with turns proper.

Remember to rank your ships: your #1 ship will be worth 3VP this round, #2 worth 2VP, and #3 worth 1VP. You can include the same character in multiple ships to hedge your bets, but you can't list the same pairing multiple times.

(Also, forgot to mention: Because of turn order, SoftNum and Pseudo will start with •500, while Stelas and Tek will have •600.)

Silly question - any chance the colours can be written on the image above cards? I found myself a bit confused between blue and indigo for a bit and it might be nice to be explicit about colours.

Everyone's chosen, so SoftNum, you're up!

a) Would you like to pay to move the focus marker (•100 per move), and
b) Will you Purchase a Card, Start Rumors, or Pass?

I think it's hard to see because it doesn't create a lot of contrast, and it's also in a somewhat discreet spot for something like the name of the card.


I'm going to hedge my ships, and not move the marker for now, and just buy the closest "take 2 money" card.

In my case it's because I was phoneposting at the time so the image was pretty small.

SoftNum asks Red to spot them a few extra bucks for a BL zine, and he's happy to lend a little to a friend. And her friends. And wow where did his wallet go. But at least he looks like a real mensch in front of the lads.

...ok i get the ao3 joke, but i'm now 100% confused by what your actual move is. I think you're saying "Pay •100 to give the bottom left kindness card to Indigo?"

Stelas continues the early wealth sharing, proving that Gutter Owl can't stop making games about communism.

(i forgot the part of my own game where the kindness cards take from the rumor card. so we've had a little extra in that untapped kitty the past couple turns. no harm no foul tho.)

Tekopo, you're up!

One question: If I get one of the jobs on the top row and it says to get a gift, the only choice I have is the bouquet of lillies, and I'm assuming I don't have to put coins down on all preceding spaces, I can just buy it outright?

Also GO (I couldn't find this in the rules so if it's there forgive me) When moving a character adjacent to another, are you required to make the minimum number of moves to fulfill the condition (i.e. adjacent but still on the same side), or can you move them to be on the opposite side?

Incorrect. You pay the full cost. (And the job's benefit only reduces the pricetag-cost, not the putting-down-coins cost.) I think getting a double action is already benefit enough? Getting the gift is optional though.

You can choose either side.
