ALEWOOD is a 30 minute tabletop party card game for 3-6 players.
You and your vigilante friends will battle crime lords - and each other - for a high stakes claim to fame. Outlaws have overrun the town with high bounties on their heads. You, the townsfolk, have decided to take matters into your own hands to collect these bounties and take back your town. Drink from your pint glass to alter your shooting speed and play cards to defend your reputation as you shoot your way to victory. Blast through the evening as you sling pints and perform hilarious character prompts turning your game night into an event to remember!
Alewood is an inclusive drinking game where alcohol and consumption are optional but silliness is absolutely required. It re-imagines the drinking game format by rewarding rambunctious roleplaying and allowing players to only drink as much or as little as they please. Players roleplay as the various townfolk (the banker, the doctor, the saloonist etc) and use their unique character Grit-Meter to measure their pint glass anytime a shootout begins to determine their shooting speed. Each meter is arranged differently and only players landing the killing shot will collect the bounty - so faster isn't always better and drinking less may give you more. Cards are used to give your speed more flexibility or (more importantly) to hinder other players by giving them acting prompts to follow. Hinders pile up fast if you're not careful and if you're caught not performing your prompt, you're punished by discarding the precious ammo you've been working so hard to collect.
Drinking can alter your in-game strategy and earn you upgrades and everything achievable by consumption can also be done through card play and game manipulation so anyone can be a threat at the table!
So enjoy your delicious craft beer while simultaneously using it to dominate the game table!
Alewood is also available to play online! Drink with your friends through the safety of remote play. Zoom/Video Chat, glassware, beverages & grit meters are still required in person to play.
