An optimistic person might call this place a town. It has a name. It just doesn’t have many people. Which makes these other losers still hanging around important. “Friends” might be a stretch, but they know about all the stupid things you’ve done. Maybe it’s been weeks, maybe decades, but they won’t let you forget. Nobody gets a clean slate here.


Unincorporated is a collaborative story game for 3-5 players who take on the roles of ordinary people caught up in petty dramas, grudges, and hopeless love affairs while trying to shake off the weight of their past and reputation.

It’s designed to be played in 1-4 episodic sessions, with no prep and a quick, easy setup. Create character history and setting details by answering a few questions, pick a starting Problem, and try to solve it.

Gameplay uses PbtA-style 2d6 +stat dice rolls. Your stats are Jock, Nerd, Prep, and Goth.

You can change your dice results or your reputation -- or even add a new stat -- by spending tokens, which you earn by choosing to fail or add complications.

This game has mechanics inspired by several game systems, including PbtA, No Dice No Masters, Lasers & Feelings, and FATE. And those are just the ones I meant to steal from; there are probably others.
