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!


(Okay, the game's actually pretty chaste.)

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!



(Today's secret ingredient is PLUS ULTRA.)

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 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 distaff counterpart, we'll be sending PMush, Rumda, hito & El Fideo into the all-girl's academy 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.

Himes, please check in!

##IMPORTANT RULES CHANGES##

No more outer/inner desires. Characters will get their second secret desire at the start of Act 2

Dutch auction is gone. Instead, pick any of the four available cards in the lower row. The card you pick will be replaced by the card above it.

Cards don't cost anything by themselves; coins are now for focus, gifts, and rumors only.

Cards are more uniform in abilities.

Almost any card can be given as a gift, but only if the giftee is listed at the top of the card. It costs one coin per space away from the giver (so an adjacent character would cost one coin, a character two spaces away would cost two coins, et cetera). This restriction only applies to gifts; a character can take any card for themselves.

There are now six club drive cards. You can take the card for yourself to gain cash when other players buy certain traits.

ALL GIFTS AND CLUBS ARE DISCARDED AT END OF ACT! Then the discards are shuffled into the Act 2 deck.

If you Pass Time (discard a card), anyone with 6+ coins must choose Rumors (previously "buy"). Anyone with zero coins must choose Rest (previously "sell"). The player who started the round also has to chip in a coin if they choose rumors. NO MORE HOARDING MONEY, JERKS.

Rumors are always for the current character. No need to choose.

Act 1 ends when two piles are empty and everyone's had equal turns. Act 2 ends when three piles are empty and everyone's had equal turns.

I did like the idea mentioned in the last thread of putting the colors at the top of the card, too. Make it easier to read at a glance for colorblind folks and/or any idiots who can't remember which color is which yet. (It's me. I'm the idiot.)

Edit: There's even empty real estate in the design that almost seems like it was intended to be there and got removed.

I think we're just waiting on everyone to get their ships in?

Gutter Owl

Mostly waiting on ships (just got the last ones in today, will update soon). But I'm also taking a moment to update some last rules changes from the latest round of live playtest, to make this experience more fun for all.

This is where I should probably highlight the part where we're playing a game in development, and there may be sudden changes if something is proven to be frustrating or degenerate. While this should be the last major change for a good while, minor hotfixes might come in. I do apologize if this fucks up anyone's strategy.

Here's a short rundown of the changes in version 4.4. Please let me know if this torpedoes your strategy and you need a mulligan on your starting ships.

  • Market structure changed from decks to card rows, alternating visible and not-visible similar to 7 Wonders Duel. (The same four cards will be currently available as shown in the OP).
  • Gifts are no longer locked to specific characters. This was more annoying than tactically interesting, and often got forgotten. Now any basic card can be gifted to any character.
  • Glamour cards now shift focus. Kindness cards are cheaper to give as gifts *if* the giver has a kindness trait of their own.
  • The secret desire High Maintenance has been removed from the game.
  • The card A Sudden Kink In Your Plans has been removed. Its function has been replaced by a new option during Time Passes, described below. Their card slots have been replaced with a pair of new dual-suit cards (Ath/Kind and Study/Glam) in 4-player games.
  • During Time Passes, the Rest option will give you a maximum of eight coins from the rumor card.
  • Act 1 ends when only one row of cards remains and all players have had equal turns, same as Act 2.
  • Some aesthetic changes.

New Time Passes option Rethink: Instead of Rumors or Rest, once per Act you may chose to Rethink. This costs ALL OF YOUR MONEY (minimum 1 coin). Same rules as the old Kink card, but the replacement ship is worth fewer points than before: 1(+1) in Act 1, 2(+2) in Act 2.

Thank you for your patience and support. Turns will hopefully resume tonight.

PMush Perfect, you're up first!

Reminder, you can pay 100 to move the focus marker 1 space, any number of times. You can take a card for the current character OR give a gift (100 for each space away) OR discard a card to Pass Time (Rumors, Rest, or Rethink).

I'm trying to figure out how much the first turn advantage is balanced by me playing kind of blind here and everyone else having an opportunity to react to my telegraphing. But if I make too oblique a move, it might not pay off.

This is not a criticism, just an explanation of my AP issue.

Pay Y200, Indigo buys 2 of Clubs for Yellow, move Yellow between Violet and Indigo. If that's an illegal move, just put her between Indigo and Blue.

The move is legal, but your cost is off. It's 300 total. 100 to move the marker from Violet to Indigo, 200 to give the card to yellow (who is two spaces away from Indigo).

Still what you want?

No, sorry, I had a brain poop. Violet gives 2C to Yellow, and moves Yellow to between Violet and Indigo. I know this also costs Y300, but will end with the marker moving to Yellow, IIRC? Let's do it no matter what, just because I don't want the game to hang.
