This jam is now over. It ran from 2022-07-17 23:00:00 to 2022-08-21 22:59:59. View 368 entries

The biggest tabletop game jam is back again for another year, with the 2022 One Page RPG Jam! This jam is about making new, one-page table-top role-playing games. Entire systems and settings on single sheets of paper. Rules-lite by necessity, one-page RPGs are easy to pick up and learn, but that doesn't mean there can't be emergent complexity or that they can't result in excellent games. Restriction breeds creativity, the only limit is the imagination of the designers and the players.

Join the jam Discord server and come together to discuss your games, ask questions about the jam, and find out more about one-page RPGs. The server is open to everyone interested in TTRPGs in general and one-page RPGs specifically, even if you're not sure you'll be submitting to the jam.

Join us on Discord

You can also follow the jam on TwitterInstagram, and Facebook. Be sure to share your submissions with the social media accounts. Also remember to use the hashtag #1pRPGjam

There is also the One Page RPG subreddit with lots more information on, and examples of, one-page RPGs, so check out /r/onepagerpgs. Be sure to post your submissions there too.

Visit the Community tab for a list of some resources for making TTRPGs (and feel free to comment and share your own) as well as some popular one-page RPGs to hack. For more examples of one-page RPGs, check out the submissions to last year's One-Page RPG Jam and get inspired.

  1. Submissions must be a fully playable RPG system on a single page. (Back pages and separate character sheets are allowed.)
  2. Submissions must be made during the jam period specifically for the jam. No old games reposted. 
  3. Hacks of other systems are fine (Laser and Feelings, and Honey Heist are popular examples). Make sure to credit where necessary.
  4. Multiple submissions are encouraged!
  5. Games can be released as free, PWYW, or with a price tag. If you're charging for the game, please send me a copy so I can review for content which breaks the rules. Consider adding community copies.
  6. Label explicit or graphic content. Consider using or referencing safety tools, such as the X card.
  7. No hate speech or bigotry. Nothing that breaks ToS or local law. Be cool.

There will be an entirely optional theme for the jam, revealed at the start of the jam. This year’s optional theme is…

What does ‘Exploration’ mean to you and your game? Is it the players that will be the explorers, or will you as the designer be the one exploring new frontiers? Is the exploration external, investigating a shared space? Or is it an introspective, and opportunity to explore internally? 

The aim of the theme is to provide direction or inspiration to anyone staring at a blank page (quite literally possible in this jam), not to shackle people to a single idea. If the theme does nothing for you, or you have a totally different idea, feel free to ignore it.
