Episode description
Buy or Die is based on S05E14 of the TV Series Parks and Recreation.
In this episode Ben and Leslie have the spontaneous idea to get married at a black tie gala. They still need to finish their shopping trip though. As they both believe in the superstition, that their marriage will fail, if they see each other before the wedding.
So they need to avoid seeing each other at all cost.

Anything you want to say to players before they play?
This is a unique 2 player coop game, where you rely on each others honesty, if you don't want to lose.

You both start in the same mall with a unique list of items on your shopping list. The first one having bought all of their items, wins!
Additionally you are not allowed to see each other. If you do, you both loose! This means you'll have to verbally communicate, to avoid this.
(This mechanic can be turned of though)



IMPORTANT:

You might need to confirm a Firewall PopUp, when hosting a game.
CONNECTING OVER THE INTERNET MIGHT NOT WORK ON EVERY MACHINE/EVERY ROUTER YET
Local/LAN connections should work reliably though

Is internet connection required to play?

Is there no SP in this game?

No, sorry to dissapoint you. Buy or Die can only be played with 2 players, either locally (via LAN) or over the internet.
