Up to five adults and babies. Space is big: hundreds of colonised worlds. Technology, culture and law vary. FTL travel uses 'jump pods’, traveling between gates. Journeys take 1-5 hours, connecting with many worlds and gates at each end. **Play** The game is one jump journey. Agree how long the journey will be, set a timer; when it goes off, the journey ends. The room you are in, plus bathroom and kitchen, is your jump pod. Children play themselves; actions relating to them are in character. Play begins when you enter the pod as strangers, stuck in this space with children; your only entertainment is talking. Start with small talk, but progress to learning about each other. **Character generation** * Where are you travelling from/to? * Why? * Did anyone see you off? * Is anyone meeting you? * One-way or return trip? * Have you been there before? **Tips** * Look for similarities and differences between you. * Make things up about your journey, destination, family as you go along * Talk about the children: ages, activities, preferences, abilities. * Think about how children learn social rules, and have leeway in breaking them; what are they doing which will be trained out of them later?
