Cats come in a variety of colors, and black cats indeed bring terrible luck to their owners. Black cats happily adopt a new owner if their previous one is deceased.

Since the opposite of black is white and the opposite of a major curse is a major blessing, but major blessings do not exist in the game, white cats also do not exist in the game.

Sock fortress. You command 7 socks to settle in new land. They love to wear dwarves.

To help black cats with killing dwarves, there is now a 1/2000 chance that a dwarf or other creature will trip and fall with each step it takes, and an also small chance of injury. This chance is naturally greatly increased when cursed with bad luck.

Socks behave now like vermin and can move anywhere on the map.

This behavior has the unfortunate side effect of cats hunting and killing socks.
If a dwarf finds a dead sock they will go berserk and kill everything in the fortress.

If a sock doesn't get a proper burial, they rise up as ghostly socks who can suffocated sleeping dwarves by shoving their incorporeal form into a dwarf's throat.

Dwarves will still fight over socks even as they're being killed by them.

It's actually pretty terrifying to think about having all of your fat melt off into grease because you started sweating too much.

Dwarves and socks are mortal frenemies and constantly seek each other out to wear the other. Whichever gets worn gets turned into a piece of footwear.

This change is further increased if they passed a stepladder anytime during that day.

dwarf fortress should be released as a euro style board game, with hundredsthousands of tokens representing each item in the game, and little carboard placards denoting each dwarf's current mood and hunger state. there is a shared middle board with a cute lil adamantine spire / dice tower. which you can activate to release demon-dice.   the end goal is to achieve the highest score in dwarfbucks

the entire game is designed in such a way as to be both highly competitive, yet it also provides huge benefits to those who are behind, and its difficult to tell who is REALLY in 1st place until the final few turns. every game you play ends up being three hours of extremely complex logical operations conducted in complete silence and when you win it feels good only because its finally fucking over.

 and this is called a social activity

And, of course, the game isnít fucking over until the player has been thoroughly fucked over!

Bay12 should release a worker-placement game where you put dwarf meeples on certain parts of the board to perform tasks, but after every turn the entire board is shaken, flipped, and thrown across the room, knocking he dwarves off of the board to simulate them not doing those things

The dwarf fortress board game should take at least three to four hours to set up properly for play.

Plump helmet wine barrel men exist and can be summoned from nearby walls, providing plump helmet wine and destroying the wall.

Your dwarves will do this automatically if they're thirsty and don't feel like walking to the tavern. Besieging units may also do this.
