Let's play Dread/Grin

I would like to host a one-shot no-holds barred CAGE MATCH of a Horror RPG sometime soon. Ok, since it's text-based one-shot isn't exactly the right word but "Campaign comprised of a single event in which any or all of the player characters may die a horrible, excruciating death" is a bit much.

If you haven't seen or played Dread or Grin before, Dread is a Jenga-based RPG (which obviously doesn't work very well in chat) and Grin is a similar game, but played with a deck of cards. Essentially I propose to play the Dread rulebook with my deck of cards instead of a Jenga tower.

I will need 3-4 players before I start sketching the game.

PS: This is a game that doesn't work if the DM cheats, so I promise to play fair.

I'm confused, but intrigued, but confused.

But also intrigued.

Since it's supposed to be a fast-paced game I initially thought chat would do, but then I realized that a four hour game in person might take eight in chat.

What would you say to a daily play-by-post game? I would post daily and if a player doesn't respond in 24 hours, they simply have no effect on what happens next.

Title speaks for itself
