From the introduction:
BLOOD IN THE ARENA is directly inspired by a personal favorite, the classic The Final Girl...The tone for Blood in the Arena is intended to be dramatic and tragic, though some humorous things may occur as the gladiators bond with one another. Like The Final Girl, this game has a Killer; unlike The Final Girl, the Killer never gets their hands dirty. In Blood in the Arena, the Killer is the scream of the crowd. This game attempts to use some history to fuel player’s imaginations, though it does not claim to be historically accurate or occur at a particular point in history. All you will need to play are a set of these rules, some note cards, writing utensils, and a deck of standard playing cards.
Blood in the Arena is published in Codex: Screams and written by David LaFreniere.
