Back of the box trivia

#1

Post by I am nobody » Thu Jul 19, 2018 6:55 pm

I'll post one sentence from the back of a mystery game box, with any obvious giveaways removed. If someone guesses right, they win a point and host the next round. If someone guesses wrong or a day passes, the host posts the next sentence.

I'm calling it back of the box trivia because I've shamelessly stolen this game and didn't bother to think of a new name. Using store page text from digital-only games or even text from somewhere else on a box is fine, too. Just try not to pick some twenty paragraph description that could drag on for months if no one gets it.

Let's start with an easy one to get the ball rolling:
{redacted] is super in a whole new way!
EDIT: Oh, and no guessing twice. If you're wrong, you're out for that round.

No rush, but just making sure you know you're posting the next round.

well i don't even need to tell you that's wrong
Los Angeles, present day. Armed thugs kidnap your fiancee and murder her father, a feared Yakuza overlord. You follow her to Tokyo, where you're plunged into the midst of a brutal gang war.

Only by mastering a lethal variety of weapons -- from ancient blades to modern firearms -- can you defend your honor and rescue your loved one from certain death.
