Story Games

What's a story game? It's a game in which you make up a story with other players, in a structured yet partially-improvised way, usually with some random elements in the form of dice or cards.

 

A few of the story games around are listed here. Click on their titles to find out a bit more about them.


My Life with Master

 

The life of a minion is a hard one.

 

The horrific things you do make it difficult to feel good about yourself.

 

If only someone loved you....


Under the Bed

 

The stuffed animals, toy trucks and action figures of your childhood did more for you than you remember. They were your guardians, advocates and friends, putting their lives on the line for you.

 

Do you have what it takes to be a toy?


It Was a Mutual Decision

Whose fault was it? Anyone's? Who's the bad guy (or gal)? Either? Both?

 

Is my lover really an inhuman, pest-ridden, murderous, shape-changing monster?

 

Don't pretend you never asked those questions.

 

Breaking up isn't hard to do—but staying alive and sane might be a problem.


The Shab-al-Hiri Roach

No?

 

Even if it will get you tenure?


The Princes' Kingdom

And only you three can stop the war.

 

A game about children, adults, and ideals.


A Thousand and One Nights

 

Mysterious strangers. Beautiful women. Enchanted swords. Talking camels. You play members of the Sultan's Court, whiling away the sultry nights by telling pointed stories to advance your own ambitions. Navigate the social maze and you could win your heart's desire; offend the wrong person and you suffer the Sultan's wrath.


Contenders

 

A game of blood and sweat, pain and hope.

Caught up in the madness of wine, the citizens throw off their togas and mingle as equals with slaves and foreigners in a debased fervor. And your own plans for a hasty departure are lost to this decadence that separates you from the companion with whom you would travel.


Steal Away Jordan

Dead of Night
