Murder! Be Thy Name
Murder! Be Thy Name is a tabletop role-playing game for 2-7 players inspired by the musical experience of American Murder Song. This game uses tales of murder to explore America’s history during the Westward Expansion era.
The players will portray characters who end up making horrible, immoral decisions by forces outside of their control. Those choices will, ultimately, lead them to murder.
However, this is not a game about glorifying murder. The characters are not the heroes or villains. They are simply human beings who are about to do some really bad shit.
In order to play you’ll need a couple friends, some paper, a pencil, a standard deck of poker cards, and a stomach for the macabre.
Reading the Play
Reading the Play is a card game themed around “The King in Yellow.”
Players race to assemble passages from the infamous play, while dealing with the madness contained within.
Players take turns either drawing from the deck or trading with each other. Each player is attempting to assemble as many sequential lines of the play as possible while avoiding Yellow Signs. The game ends when the final line of the play is revealed, at which point the player with the most lines in front of them wins. Players have to be careful though because if anyone ever has three Yellow Signs in hand the game ends and everyone loses.
Gif-Kwondo is the fast-paced game of animated hilarity.
A party game where the players race to see who can find the best gif for a Noun & Verb combination.
In order to play all participates need a device capable of searching the internet for gifs (cell phone, tablet, laptop, etc.)
The Lovecraft Social
Lovecraft Social is an online role-playing game for three friends. Each player creates a Character and rotates between three roles; the Investigator, the Witness, and the Scribe. The characters take turns telling a story about their investigations, questioning each other, and recording their findings in the Master Chronicle. Characters have only one stat; Sanity. Characters slowly lose Sanity while recounting their investigation but gain some back with the support of their peers.
