@Randomex  i thought you'd like this http://nowiknow.com/help-me-test-a-new-card-game/
I've saved the ruleset and might look at it one of these days. I'd probably have a better
experience with Regicide, another standard-deck game which I'm in the same position with.

I tried it a while back. We didn't find it engaging. (Regicide was indeed better.)

As of this writing, the #6 game on BoardGameGeek's Hotness list is the recently-announced...



Quote
The aim of Ezra and Nehemiah is to be the player with the most Victory Points (VP) at the game’s end. Points are gained primarily by building the temple, rebuilding the city walls and gates, and by teaching the Torah to the returning exiles. Players may also seek to develop their land, travel to settlements outside the city walls, or stoke the altar’s fire to keep it burning day and night. The prophets Haggai and Zechariah will be doing their part to keep the people focused on what is most important.

Over 3 weeks (Rounds), players will be using their hand of cards, workers, and resources to do their part in rebuilding the great city of Jerusalem. After 6 days of work, there will be a Sabbath day of rest. Food will be needed, and the week’s work will be reflected upon. The game will end after the 3rd Sabbath has been completed.

—description from the designer



This actually will be the second game I'm aware of with this theme, this having been the first (in 2014):

(Update: Now #2. (I think Hotness is determined by the number of visits the game's page has recently had.) )

It was because he wanted there to be conspirators. It was much better to imagine men in some smoky room somewhere, made mad and cynical by privilege and power, plotting over the brandy. You had to cling to this sort of image, because if you didn’t then you might have to face the fact that bad things happened because ordinary people, the kind who brushed the dog and told their children bedtime stories, were capable of then going out and doing horrible things to other ordinary people. It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do the bad things.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elon_Musk_vs._Mark_Zuckerberg

The heading, the form of which will be familliar to Wikipedia readers, sets the tone nicely:
"This article is about the cage match. For the web series episode, see Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg (Epic Rap Battles of History)."

The bassoon and the bass are far more closely related than are the harpoon and the harp.

A harpoon seems like overkill for a bass
