Nice game!

In the beginning, when it says "Write your name and pronouns", that means the character's name and pronouns, right? Related, how much do you expect real life and the real relationships between the players to bleed into the game?

Also, I wonder how easy it is to come up with struggles and problems off the top of your head while playing, and if having some prompts or similar could help (similar to the initial table, but a bit more concrete).

thanks for reading!

have you played Knowing You? one of the things I love about that game is the way it gently pushes you to draw from your own history for material without ever telling you exactly where the boundaries between that and the fiction should be. I was trying for something like that ambiguity.

using specific literal prompts for struggles felt very limiting of that to me, which is why I ended up going the more abstract route, but I still tried to use prompts I could think of multiple examples for from my life.

Ah, I didn't know that game, thanks for the link. Also seems potentially heavy, not sure I'd dare playing that other game 😅

Party of One did a really good actual play.
