In the small town of Webberton, Illinois, students of Webberton Junior High School have been getting crafty. To get themselves through the boredom of study hall, the 6th graders have been stealing the school’s IDs, forms, and passes in order to put together a game all their own.
In The Coolest Kid in School, you are one of 7 kids playing in study hall, attempting to take over the school and become the coolest kid of all. The game is a reimplementation of the 1995 classic Condottiere, with an academic twist in theme. After cards are dealt randomly, players will take turns revealing their cards during fights in order to claim certain spaces of the school as their turf. But make sure to use your cards wisely! Players don’t receive new cards until the end of the school week, or until only one player has cards left. Through bluffing, hand management, negotiation, and overall trickery, players will recreate the silly hierarchies of middle school.
