The Game King (5e Subclass)
From D&D Wiki
Game King Patron
Warlock Subclass A pact formed with an ancient spirit of a lost civilization based on the playing of games. Through the use of the so-called dark games it was possible to inflict tremendous punishments upon those that lose. The spirits have since been placed in objects of that civilization and exert power through holders in the modern world often bringing out darker sides of their users, sometimes splitting their personality in two.

Your opponent must make a wisdom save against your spell save DC, if it passes it can set the terms of the game or choose to refuse, otherwise you may set the terms. A game can involve either contested checks in a gaming set or athletics, acrobatics or history performed as best of 3 or anything else your DM deems reasonable. The winner of the game can then choose a penalty game for the opponent from among these or something else of a similar level:
•Take 2d8 times the level of the spellslot expended psychic, poison or fire damage.
•Cause them to see or hear a persistent hallucination of whatever you wish. This can cause something to be seen as something else or feel the presence of something that doesn’t exist. This lasts for 8 hours times the level of the spellslot expended.
•Cause them to be under the effect applied by being in a zone of truth for a number of minutes equal to the spellslot expended.
