(you can edit change or whatever just playing around ^^) i watched you type that in realtime and it's funny lol it's almost as if it's kinda an mmo lol YES (is gdocs a video game? [thinking emoji but it messed this up lol])

hi i don't know how to make tabletop games / RPGs / LARPs / etc. so i wanna try. i mean i've played monopoly and go fish but i never had friends who were into physical games?? seems like a lot of people did but i usually play games to avoid people lol

so i somehow stumbled upon this thread about tabletop/physical games and it piqued my interest. i haven't really started trying them, so i wanted to make some of my own before i knew too much!

being that gt is a mostly-digital space made me wanna do this even more!! think about how most of us aren't around each other physically and how we can use that framework to our advantage! or maybe it would be cool to make a game that requires meeting with a remote gt'er irl even if that's years from now (or never??)??? Wow

okay optional challenge?? different weeks are different types?
week 1 make a card game , week 2 will be LARPs, week 3 board games, week 4 RPGs
also it's cool if the more you make the better???? i(quasiotter) will try to make one everyday (but im going to bundle them, so day7 of week 1 ill have a bundle of the cardsgames)

the cool thing about physical games is that you can use literally anything in the universe as pieces. you don't even need pieces! you can make a physical game that just uses the human body. Ninja is a good example of this (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ninja_(playground_game)) but yeah go nuts. everything is a piece and a playing surface, including your cat and the space at your local park and that toy car you found lying half-buried in the gravel on your walk home one time and the front window at the 7/11 down the street (maybe ask first (or dont))

Please eat some beans

I miss emoji reaction things i would thumbs up a lot

thanks to &t and ??? for contributing!!

PS there were more gifs but i couldn't find them or know how to save them from the google doc if you made one please send the image url to me so i can put it here! also if you just wanna add mroe i can do that too lol also i don't know who to credit for contributing to this lmk lol

Yes A Thousand Times

I love, love, love tabletop game design! That thread from itch is fascinating, because I had no idea just how robust the world could be regarding zine-based games, one-offs, spin-offs, and such.

I'm excited for August to begin (tomorrow) so I can start posting stuff here. :)
