Pillbox Games showed off how scandals may harm or be a nothing burger if you play your cards right.
At PAX Unplugged 2023, Pillbox Games demonstrated multiple games at the exhibition hall, including MUD.
A political card-based board game, MUD has you competing against others to have voters within specific regions. In the setup we saw, you had to have four voters in all four regions to play. As you play the game, you can use RAT cards to advance your goal, but in return, you must take a scandal card and “bury” it. That scandal card can wreck your gameplay or can become nothing depending on if players can dig up the scandals.
