Guys

Guys I've got it

I've got this idea for a wargame that I think would be sick as hell.

Aright, you ready?

"GUMMY WARS"

The basic premise is that two or more players battle each other using gummy bears/worms/whatever as miniatures, each when their own special rules.

Whenever you kill an enemy unit in game, you will take the gummy piece and eat it. The objective is to kill/eat all your enemy's gummies.

Thought?

>> No.18558915

>>18558863

>Gummi Bears: Bonuses based upon number of other individual bears around them. MUTANT BEARS: The rare 'double-bear' is treated as a large unit with triple stats of a normal bear; can pick up and throw 'objects'.

>Gummi worms: Have the ability to burrow, acting as complete cover. If damage dealt to a gummi worm is not lethal, rip it in half and treat the two pieces and seperate worms with half the original stats.

>Swedish Fish: Aquatic units, massive speed boost in water.

>Sour units: Any non-sour units that touch a sour unit are sent into a frenzy.

I'm sorry, I know little about war gaming and just found this amusing. I hope someone can make sense of what I'm trying to convey.

Sounds delicious. I imagine having the delicious treats cost points depending on their weight in grams. More grams = more action points for your unit.

1 action is 1 attack OR 1 movement OR 1 ability useage. Gummies have special powers based on their color - say, red could have +1 to all their rolls when activated, green could be great at camoflage etc. Multi color gummies cost +1 point per color but can spend action points to activate powers related to any of its colors.

Also, gummies have 1 defense per 2 grams of weight. Attacking allows 1 dice per action spent on attacking. Each roll of 4+ is a success. Beat the enemy defense to kill it. Since smaller units have much less defense but are more mobile than larger units you have a good strategical point in unit composition as well.

Also, if you kill an enemy gummy you get to eat it.

Expansion Packs include Death By Chocolate, Artillery Candy Rocks and Marshmellow Madness

The ring-shaped ones: Possible bonus/marks any HQ/Hero units/flying saucer unit?

Also, perhaps stuff like gummi pizza/burgers would represent super monsters, or would they work better as objectives?

For lots of rank and file troops (Like an IG to the gummi bar space marines) could use sticks of gum. Freedent or whatever in the little rectangular paper ones are the individual models (Could probably also use bubblegum). Longer strips could be used to form temporary barricades by folding into a ^ shape (disrupting charges and giving a cover bonus?). Gum tape rolls could be used to make an extensive trenchwork series.

It's pretty much an indicator of how willing you are to sacrifice/the enemy is willing to kill it, since someone has to eat it. Thus, playing units your opponent dislikes might be seen as underhanded but effective.

I don't think that'll happen, this concept is fucking sweet.

I personally like the idea that the model/gummi's stats are dependent on their mass and sugar/calorie content.

From a diet website:
Gummi Bears
serving size is 10 (22 g)
87 cal per serving, 13g sugar
1 bear is ~3 g (Round up), ~2g sugar, and ~9 calories

Gummi Worms:
serving size is 10 (74g)
293 cal per serving, 43.6g sugar
1 worm is ~8 g, ~5g sugar, and ~30 calories

Gummi Fish (Assumign sharks here and not swedish fish)
Serving Size is 10 fish (50g)
198 cal per serving, 29.5g sugar
1 Fish is ~5g, ~3g sugar, and ~20 calories

Perhaps calories=hp, sugar = dice to attack with, and overall mass = def? So a gummi bear would roll 2d6 vs the worm, which reduces the result by 8, and needs 30 calories of damage to remove the worm? (Assuming here multiple units can combine attacks)

In one DnD session I had all of the minions be gummies and the players that killed them got to eat them.

Bonus was that the gummies were home made and I can always make more awesome ones from the molds I have. Amazon has a great selection and the molds are pretty cheap. Just look for "chocolate molds" and most of them can be used for home made gummies.

Ok, my thoughts:
Serving size=squad size. You get a discount if you purchase a whole serving for your army. All other values are divided by # of appropriate gummys per serving. Round these individual values up.

Weight (in g) = unit hp.
Calories = Unit Cost

Total Fat (in g) = max range of spells (in inches). Default range is self.
Sat Fat (in g) = dice rolled to dispel spell. Default is 1.
Trans Fat (in g) = dice rolled to cast spell. Default is 1.

Total Carbs (in g) = max range of combat attacks (in inches). Default is 0.
Dietary Fiber )in g) = # dice rolled to defend vs combat attacks
Sugar (in g) = # dice rolled in combat. Default is 1.

Sodium (in mg) = inches moved when given a move order
Cholesterol (in mg) = bonus to spell roll (cast and dispel)
Protein (in g) = bonus to dice rolled in combat

Spells: (Roll d6s equal to trans fat, and attempt to roll under the %. Any targeted enemies and enemies within their Total Fat range of the caster roll d6s equal to their sat fat, and cancels each success with a 6)
Vitamin A: +1 to shooting die rolls per success
Vitamin C: Heal 1 hp per success.
Calcium: +1 to dispel rolls
Iron: +1 to defense rolls in combat

>> No.18568030

(Full spell list, as per wikipedia's list. Forgot to add, you're trying to roll under the % daily given in the label. Any % > 5 means auto-success on anything but a 6):
Vitamin A: +1 to shooting die rolls per success
Vitamin C: Prevent the next 1 damage this turn per success..
Calcium: +1 to dispel rolls
Iron: -1 inch to enemy movement per success
Vitamin D: -1 to enemy defense die per success
Vitamin E: Heal 1 hp per success
Vitamin K : End an ongoing affect per success
Thiamin: Target enemy makes a single combat attack against an enemy within their range, with 1d6 per success.
Riboflavin: Ignore terrain for 1 inch per success
Niacin: Reroll one defense die in combat per success
Vitamin B6: +1 inch movement per success
Folate: +1 to defense rolls in combat per success
Vitamin B12: Reroll 1 die in combat per success
Biotin: +1 to defense die in combat per success
Pantothenic acid: -1 to enemy attack roll in combat per success
Phosphorus: 1d6 damage hit on enemy per success.
Iodine: If enemy is damaged, increase that damage by 1 per success.
Magnesium: 2d6 damage hit on adjacent enemy per success
Zinc: Can create a new gummy adjacent to this one, with a calorie value of up to twice the # of successes
Selenium: 1d6 damage on target enemy. If they take damage, repeat this against two enemies still within range of this caster. Repeat until no more damage has been done, all the enemies in range have been damaged once, or you've split a number of times equal to your successes.
Copper: Can create a new gummy within your spell range, with a calorie value of up to the # of successes.
Manganese: +1 to any allied spells within range per success.
Chromium: +1 to any allied combat attacks within range per success
Molybdenum: Enemy within range must reroll one combat die per success
Chloride: Enemy within range must reroll once defense die per success.

Huzzah, she lives!

Also, going off of those stats for the "spells," 1 cup's worth of solid milk chocolate is fucking crazy-powerful. It'd probably be a titan-type unit anyhow, but it's still ridiculous stats:

899 calories, 168 g total, 50g fat (31g saturated), 39 mg cholesterol, 133 mg sodium, 100g carbs (6 g fiber, 87 g sugar), 13 g protein. Don't forget 7% vitamin A, 32% calcium, and 22% iron.

Fuck, sodium = move is bad. Haribo gummy bears apparently have no sodium, while the chocolate titan would be zipping around like a bat out of hell. Maybe the base movement should be like 6", and 1/10 of the Sodium is a bonus to movement? I'm thinking that the Cholesterol bonus to spells should be 1/10 of the listed value as well (Rounding up)
