Roman Mythology Tabletop Tournament

So this is going to be a thread where we re-imagination the Roman Gods and other creatures playing tabletop games.
Who do you think will win which games?

Of course, you’re welcome to discuss it here all you want.
Just in between that, I’m going to post polls on the various games and randomly select the pairings that versus each other. Then you (anyone) gets to decide who wins each pairing!



The Tournaments:

  1. TBA

how does this happen? Like we choose a God /Goddess and play as them?

Nah, this is just a voting thing, just a bit of silly fun. We’ll start with a game that anyone can choose, unless lots are suggested and then a poll will decide. I’ll then randomise competitors from the list a above and set up polls for everyone to decide the winner of each game.

Tournament One is…
Snakes & Ladders



Snakes and ladders, known originally as Moksha Patam, is a board game for two or more players regarded today as a worldwide classic. It is played on a game board with numbered,
gridded squares. A number of “ladders” and “snakes” are pictured
on the board, each connecting two specific board squares.
The idea is that each player takes turns rolling a D6 in order to move spaces and
try to reach the hundredth square first to win. Basically, it’s a game of luck of the die roll.



How the tournament works?
I’ve made up the tournament bracket by randomising the names in the list above. There will be four heats, where in each one everybody will be able to vote for the winners of all the pairings. You can each base your decisions on your favourites or who you think would actually win against their opponent.



The heats are below, please vote!
