It designed to have 30-40 players, all of whom have been invited to, or who are participating in, the society wedding of the decade between two families who have long been at odds with one another.

After generations of conflict, the wealthy Vallier family and the crafty Malone family have finally come together to unite their families by joining the heirs to their respective dynasties in marriage. To celebrate, they have invited their families, friends, important political leaders, and even representatives from the troublesome and unpredictable Carter Company to bear witness to this new era of peace and prosperity.

A mixture of high society, blue collar workers, crafty opportunists, and seedy characters will come together for a weekend of rehearsal dinners, social mingling, and eventually a wedding. During this time they will take the opportunity to drive their agendas forward, settle old debts, reconfirm alliances, and possibly forge new ones. Who knows what the shadows hold once the light of day sets?

The game will be heavily focused on collaborative storytelling, player agency, deep characters, drama, and a “play to lift” philosophy.

The cost will be 735 USD plus taxes (around 60 USD) per ticket

The minimum age to participate will be 21 years due to the nature of the game, and the access to alchohol on the premise.
