Way outside my normal game bounds, what about a party "sex" game, you'll see

So essentially the idea I got was that the game would be a card game. You would bid and play cards like "cock block" or "mad swag" or "awesome pickup line" to try and win the bedmateship of one of the randomly drawn bar patrons. Each character you play as also has a quirk you have to work around, and a sexual orientation. "pickups" the people who are drawn at each game have certain "appearance" "personality" and "money", each rewards experience for "getting with" that person. Haven't determined a system for how exactly...

Anywho, most games I design are fantasy heavy, and this came up after a great game of Bang! with 6 people. A "dating sim" game with a light-hearted comical approach/theme.

The game plays over 7 rounds, where each round is 1 weeknight. You get points for the person(s) (if any) you get to come home with you. Additional points for completing/satisfying your character's fetish. (all character remain hidden)

I'm not 100% on how it plays yet, but it sounds like it could be fun. Any ideas?

If you have cards like 'cock

If you have cards like 'cock block', then the game becomes something that people wil play while drinking, and you will need to keep the rules streamlined and simple.

If you lowered the tawdriness a little and made it a game about speed dating, you could make it quirkily cute and something that people will play while sober. I believe that somebody on the BGG design forum had a concept for a harem anime game - perhaps you might like to bounce ideas off each other?

What KAndrw Said

Along the lines of what KAndrw said, if you want this to be a party game, you'll need to streamline it. As much as I love Bang!, I wouldn't say it's a party game -- or even a game for non-gamers.

That said, I'm sure your idea could work. In fact, I think there are already a couple of games out there with similar themes. The big questions are, "how does it work," and "what's the gameplay hook, as opposed to the subject matter hook?"

You know, I actually know the guy that started that thread. That would be.... me, of course. Yeah, so if anyone is thinking of design a dating sim game and needs ideas, opinions and/or resources, just let me know. One of these days, I'm going to have to put fingers to keyboard and start up a thread or design journal for my game.

Speaking of BBG, OddCrow, you might want to have a look at the design and info on these games, which are in the same vein as what you are looking for. They don't really work for me, but you might get some good ideas from them.
