I don't understand what this sentence means in the manual: "And if you, the human player, don’t belong to a marginalized identity, don’t put it in your Personal Tags at all."

Patchwork World is unconcerned with convention, it does not care about white space or polish. It is a text that cares about its reader, future players, and trusts they will care more about its content than its cover. It’s a game that I want so badly to be the model for indie designers everywhere, because it’s first and foremost about its words. 


Yes, this is exactly it! Thank you.

Hey there! I made a set of play sheets in the Role App:

Let me know if you have any recommendations to improve them

Whoa, thank you so much! I have no idea how Role works, but I appreciate the work you put in. Okay if I share these?

Absolutely ok! Share away!

Hi, I am the Chinese translator of this book. I successfully resolved the network issue and registered this account. I just want to say that this rule is really great, It is a particularly easy, fun, and suitable game for beginners.I love it!

Thank you for the kind words and the translation!

I put this together for solo play and thought maybe other solo players might find it useful as well 🙂


This is very cool, thanks so much! Is it okay if I tweet this out? Do you want to be tagged?

Absolutely! You can tweet this out and share anywhere else you'd like. I do not have a Twitter account so I am not sure if I can be tagged there but if it is possible you have my full permission to do so. Thank you for creating such a fun game! 🙂

If anyone needs a character keeper, feel free to save a copy of this one I made for some friends:

Now that I got it: This is so cool! There's so much for me to learn in this design AND I can't wait to play this game.

Amazing - I’ve been getting fascinated with Alice in Wonderland-esque adventures and I definitely want to try this out. Like how narrative focused it is.


I am so looking forward to getting my hands on this! Are there no more community copies to be made available?


Patchwork World has got a grubby magical sense of place that's familiar and otherworldly and never too sweet.  It's a fantasy but it's got good bones & messy people and plenty of trouble to get into.


Troika! A la pbta 🤗


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. 


best game I’ve ever played. contains all the stuff I love about roleplaying. if I were to pick one game to play for the rest of my life, it would be this.


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