A game of intrigue and working together

You are in a maze. You don't know why you are here, or how long you have been here. As you work your way out of here, you have come to realize that there is something following your group. You need to make sure you’re in a secure place each night before you can rest. Use a unique system that represents the cost of pushing yourself too far and work together to escape.

Design a winding path

Design encounters and challenges to make your characters confront uncomfortable truths about their life before the maze. Explore a world different but not entirely unlike your own while your characters learn and grow.

What each player needs

  • A set of polyhedral dice
  • A deck of playing cards

Touchstones & Inspiration

Over the Garden Wall; Labyrinth; the works of Tove Jansson; the myth of Theseus.
