The "Riverside" deck is a game based on the city that I live in: Riverside, CA. While a lot of the cards are based on inside jokes, the game is still very relateable for anyone who understands how difficult it can be to escape their roots. The basic goal of the game is to beat your friends out for jobs.

Special Rules

The object of the game is to get the job in the center of the table. Each job requires a certain amount of Talent, Intellect, Ambition and Luck. If your character has AT LEAST the number required, they get the job. Short game: The first player to get 2 jobs wins. Long game: Select a certain number of jobs and play until they are all assigned.

Character Cards

The game is played with a set of characters, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Each player should choose 1 character card randomly at the beginning of the game (OR make your own character, allocating 14 points between the 4 categories. You must have at least 1 point in every category, and may have no more than 5 points in any one category.)

Job Cards

Job cards are all assigned 4 numbers: Talent, Intellect, Ambition and Luck. If a character meets all of the requirements using Items and Boosters on their turn, they can take the job and end the round.

Boosters

Boosters give you temporary stat boosts. Any number of boosters can be used on your turn, but as soon as you are done, your stats drop back to whatever they were without the boosters. Like in real life, once a job is obtained, you no longer have to meet the requirements you put forth in the interview.

Instants

Instants can be played any time, usually in response to an action being played against you.

Curses

You may play a curse on another player, and it is permanent until destroyed by another card.
