The Hands That Lead

A hands on kind of leader…


In Bimbo or Billionaire, what’s your decision process for which changes get implemented? Also,what are some fun ideas for changes that you’ve had but haven’t used (yet)?

I usually start with a character I want to play the game, sometimes it’s the character at the start if the game, sometimes it’s the character at the end of the game.

Once I have that one end of the character arch, I figure out other end so I have the story bookended.

After that, it’s pretty straight forward, the ending tells me how many rounds they have to win/lose for the story and what changes I need to make during the rounds.

For the rounds themselves I start with the change I’m making, grab a change from a previous story and then fill in the missing ones with some new ideas. And by ideas I mean something that sounds interesting as I usually don’t know the details of the unused changes myself 🙂

If I use one of those changes in a future story, I have to make up the details then.

Once I have that all written down in a quick chart of the rounds, I start writing the actual story, using the chart as I move through the rounds, because it’s super easy to get out of sequence mess up how many cases have been opened and which ones are cash and bimbo cases 😉

I don’t keep any ideas for changes per say, but I do keep a list of ideas for characters and stories. 

I’m taking some vacation in a few weeks and I’m hoping to do some writing, including at least one BoB story idea I’ve had around for quite a while.

Hope that answers your question.
