As You ‘Which

A delicious (and sometimes disgusting) card game that has one goal, build the best sandwich you can and convince your opponents it’s the best they’ve ever seen. As You ‘Wich is an ecstatic celebration of mankind’s greatest invention: the sandwich. From hot pitas stuffed with falafel to fresh baguettes with ham and butter, every corner of the world has its sandwich, and its people have their sandwich opinions.

Each player starts with 5 cards. Players then draw cards or take from the three piles of cards in the middle (known as “The Sandwich Store”). Gameplay continues until each store is forcefully closed. Then players take turns to pitch their creation. Once all sandwiches have been pitched, on the count of three, players point and pick the best sandwich. The best sandwich wins the round. The chef who wins the most rounds wins the game!

 Pledges start at $20 for the game.





We have refined RULES. over the past couple of years, and now seems like the best time to make our fun 3-4 player game available. Perfect for quaran-teaming!

The rules of the game will change, and you must enforce them to get ahead. At the same time, why not break a few rules if you can get away with it? If others don’t hold you accountable, well, they should have been paying more attention. The changing rule cards create chaotic energy while you play. Some rules require physical action (like double tapping a piece), some trigger during particular moments (like after you move), and many are downright ridiculous (like curtsying or shooting finger guns). In combination, the rules make for a challenging and exciting game experience. Move down the track to claim a rule card, which then gets replaced. Claim three rule cards to win!

Pledges start at $5 for a print and play and $20 for a physical copy.


Epitaph: A Biography Creation Story Game

Epitaph is a game about life and the events that make us who we are. You play together to create a character whose life you’ll explore… starting with how they died. Then you jump around the story of their life, creating the key moments that shaped them.


When I started designing Epitaph, I wanted to make a game that let you really get to know the central character. This is what I love most about playing it: we begin with a blank page, and by the end we’ve made a fictional person who feels real. Their life is messy and full of highs and lows. Because we’ve spent a whole session watching the most important moments of this person’s life play out, we feel a sense of compassion and understanding for them. We get them. And to me that’s what makes playing Epitaph so special.

Epitaph has no prep before play, so you can start creating an engaging story from the moment you sit down together–in person or online. It’s a GMless story game for 2-5 players and is designed for one session of 2-3 hours.

Pledges start at $12 for a PDF and $24 for a physical copy.


Heckna: Carnival Horror Setting

Welcome to the carnival, where we are always smiling…

Heckna! is 5e adventure story designed to take characters through levels 1 to 10. This book is both a setting and a campaign guide with plenty of replayability. Game Masters and players alike will delight in this whimsical, dark carnival setting.

This is a book that combines dark fantasy and fun, campy escapades. It’s designed for players ages 14 and up. However, it’s very easy to adjust the tone and the atmosphere for your party. There’s plenty here that will satisfy horror fans, and just as much that will entice fans of humor and whimsy.
