Submissions Open in Three Days

Rules and details can be found on the main site: https://200wordrpg.github.io/

The Goal: Design a tabletop role-playing game using 200 words or less.

Impossible you say? Not so!

In fact it’s the perfect challenge to try out some new ideas. A 200 word limit will put your editing and writing skills to the test.

And one small piece of advice from me: Avoid “The” titles. “The Door”, “The Event”, “The Whatever”. Those games all get lumped together alphabnetically and kind of drag on.

What other advice have I missed? Join the conversation on the 200WordRPG subreddit.
