Building a world from scratch can be hard. Whether writing a story or running a tabletop roleplaying game for a group of friends, it takes a lot to build an intricate setting complete with warring factions, a timeline, and non-player characters who compliment the story. 

World Maker is a single player tabletop game about creating a fictional world by concentrating on the characters. You will create characters with random attributes and build a setting around them that fulfills and compliments who they are and the stories they can create.

  • Players: 1
  • Playtime: 1-2 hours
  • Requires: A deck of playing cards with the jokers removed,  a journal or 4-5 sheets of paper and something to write with (printable play sheets are provided with the game)

I've played this a couple times over the past week and really enjoyed it. Enough so that I sat down with a label maker and created a deck with all the prompts on the cards to speed up play.

That's amazing! Maybe one day I'll have enough resources to release some custom cards.

Neat idea! Having the cards makes it a lot easier to rearrange them till the story makes sense.
