This is a game about spending the night in a spa.
Each player introduces their character by NAMING them, EXPLAINING why they're at the spa, and SETTING a goal for the night.
Explanations include, but are not limited to, loneliness, boredom, shelter, and lust.

The game lasts five rounds, each round representing two hours at the spa, starting at 8 p.m.
Each round, each player will select a location to visit. Each player rolls 1d6. Players pick locations based on the die roll, going lowest to highest.
If multiple players pick the same location, they share a scene. If a player is alone at a location, they share something they see, something they do, or something they dream.
At the end of round, each player rolls 1d6. On a 1, something special happened. On a 6, something weird happened. Player describes what happened.

The Showers. (Closed rounds three and four.)
The Beds. (Closed rounds one and two.)
The Saunas. (Always open.)
The Baths. (Closed rounds three and four.)

At the end of round five, players reflect on their character's night.
Did they meet their goal? Do they have any regrets?

The mind wanders when you’re sitting in a recliner in a dark room full of strangers trying to fall asleep. I know why I’m there, but I always wonder what is going through everyone else’s minds. I’ve seen all sorts at the spa in the middle of the night- from the very young to the very old, from the party crew to the lonely male. It takes all sorts, you know?
