You Don't Belong Here
A downloadable game
You’re queer, and you live in a place where that’s not okay. Sometimes it’s physically dangerous; usually it’s more subtle than that. But the pressure to hide in the closet, or the bigotry you face if you don’t, grinds you down. This is a hard place to live, and you’re about ready to find somewhere easier.
But you do have friends here. People you care about. People who make the place bearable. People who have it harder than you do. People who can’t leave.
No place is perfect, but maybe you could make this one better for yourself and folks like you. Or you could abandon it and go somewhere better. Is there anything, or anyone, worth staying here for?
You Don’t Belong Here is a storytelling card game based on For the Queen. The rules are extremely simple: players take turns drawing cards and answering the questions on them. A full game can be played in an hour or two.
Version & Download Info
This is a game jam project. It’s a very, very rough draft. I haven’t even playtested it. If you try it, let me know how it goes!
Currently they're only available as PDFs, 8 cards to a letter-size sheet. If you print them on Avery 25395 nametag sheets, you can just peel them off and stick them on regular playing cards.
