[Musical Chairs of Doom, Lobby]
Large steel plates riveted to metal beams make up the walls, sending a rattle through the large room from time to time. Exposed piping runs through the ceiling, much of it rusted and giving off a slightly musty odor. A large wooden desk sits on a square of red carpeting, looking a bit out of place. You also see a gently sloping stairway, the seating area, a sharp-eyed game clerk, a very large WARNING sign you should READ, a heavy steel door and a menacing steel arch. Obvious exits: none.


A very large WARNING sign you should READ reads:

                **********WARNING!!!************
         This is a game with a very high risk of death!

      If you want to play, GO DOOR.  Cost is 1000 dokoras.
To play, APPRAISE the various seats until you find one that's safe.
        After the music stops, SIT {seat} to become safe.
   You can also PUSH {seat} to dislodge someone from their seat.
            Anyone not in a safe seat will be killed!
                  Survivors will win a prize!

[Musical Chairs of Doom, Lovely Melodies]
A slightly raised platform stands in the center of the room, with several slots for the chairs to pop through. Large panels in the sides of the walls look able to open and close easily. Suspicious rust-colored stains mar the drains punctuating the grate-like floor away from the platform. Obvious exits: none.


[Musical Chairs of Doom, Below the Platform]
Chairs and other places to sit line this small room in a rather haphazard manner, each one a different shape and size. Bright metal platforms are positioned to rise and fall from the ceiling, taking some of the chairs with them. Although it all looks jumbled together rather haphazardly, a sort of chaotic organization pervades the atmosphere. You also see a narrow tunnel leading back to the lobby. Obvious exits: none.


[Musical Chairs of Doom, Triage]
Stark metallic walls enclose this semi-circular room, set out with some bamboo mats to be used for the sick or injured. Dried blood stains clot the floor, and an acrid smell lingers in the air, mixed with the scent of bandages. Someone has left a few rose-filled flowerpots in the corners, apparently in a desperate attempt to mask the fouller odors. You also see a bucket of viscous gloop, a small wooden bench and a gently sloping stairway. Obvious exits: none.

To Play

  • Once 3 or more people have gone through the door, after a minute or so the game will start. When you look at the room, you'll see various seating types, such as a chair, bench, ottoman, etc.
  • SEARCH each seat type. There are a number of possible messages you'll get on each search:
  • Appraising the <seat type> carefully, you think that you're going to die a horrible death if you sit there.
  • Appraising the <seat type> carefully, you have trouble telling if it's going to protect you or not.
  • Appraising the <seat type> carefully, you think it's definitely going to protect you from the looming deathtrap.
  • Once you get the "protection" message, you've found the safe seat type. When you see the next message, the person that is sitting on that seat type will be safe from death.

  • The other players not on the safe seat will die.
