"All the worlds ended together: heavens and hells, kingdoms and wastelands, and everything in between. As they broke apart, the Heartless Princess saved the bits she could, shoving them together and crowning the resultant Patchwork World with her Icy City to hold it all together."

Patchwork World is:

  • a no-playbook, no-stat fantasy game; choose a couple moves and you're ready to start
  • powered by the apocalypse, meaning you'll need two 6-sided dice and not much else
  • 70 moves that you can easily port to almost any other game

Your purchase comes with:

  • an 84-page PDF rulebook
  • a 31-page Play Materials document, including a form-fillable character sheet, 70 unique moves (such as Magnificent Weapon, Stoned Investigator, Crystalline Garden, Become Cats, and more)
  • a plain-text version of the above

"Patchwork World is the most fun PbtA game I've played... pass it on. Just unbridled joy." - John Geary/@gayhalforc

Patchwork World is a banger and a half. This game is surprising, hilarious, constantly inspirational and tremendously accessible. I want to play every move and experience every encounter on the roll tables. It makes me--a wildly uncreative person--want to create things. It makes me want to climb inside its weirder, gentler worlds, and live there. It is a *delight*.  11/10 would play a goat-footed muppet necromancer again.

I can not say it enough, but this is one of my favorite games ever, and I'm so happy it's finally out.
