Haha yes we may have to change the title alone to make it accommodating for your students, but this should be an easy game to hack! I'll send this along with the other game!

Hi thanks for reaching out! I'll email you in a short bit, I'm always happy to send over copies of my games for whatever reason, but classroom activities is an especially good reason!

Thank you so much for your kind words!! And yes, please feel free to translate the game into German, I'd be happy if more folks got to play it! I really appreciate you checking in with me <3 If you could just credit me and link back to the game page that'd be great :D

Wow ten sessions that's amazing!! Thank you so much, I hope to get back to working on this game soon. I'm so glad you had a good time playing, and that you're sharing your sessions online <3

Hihi! I just added a few more copies, but in case you miss them let me know and I can send a download key! I'm happy to share any of my other games with new designers so let me know if you're interested in any others. You can email me at swordqueenggames at gmail and I'll send over the codes <3

Community copies are free so don't feel obliged to leave a review, but I do hope the game helps! I based this design on A Quiet Year by Avery Alder, I also highly recommend checking out her games too.

Hello! I try to update community copies when I can but they do disappear quickly! I just put in a few more based on sales and ratings, in case you miss it let me know and I'll be happy to send over a download key!

Thanks for asking! I just added a bunch! In case you miss these copies let me know and I'd be happy to send you a download key <3

Hi! That should be true for the bottom of the page, if you scroll up to the top of the page the Download button should work (next to when you claimed the key).

(I've tried fixing this on itchio's side but I can't seem to change what shows up at the bottom of the page!)

In case that still doesn't work, I'm happy to send you a download link!

Sorry for the late reply! We just got a bunch of sales recently and I just refreshed the community copies pool! In case you miss it, let me know and I'm happy to send you a download key <3

I honestly struggle with modern technology so I feel you! I'll make it extra clear in the text above, thank you so much for taking the time to reach out and leave a comment! :)


Thank you for reaching out! I'm unfortunately a little late in uploading the PDF but I'm hoping to finish everything this month. Fingers crossed! I'll come back and comment here again in case you miss the file when it goes up!

Hello! I went ahead and added a free community copy for each 5 star rating we get here on itchio so!! More community copies!

(In case they run out before you can grab one, please let me know, I'll be happy to send you a personal download link!)

Hello! We've been stuck at the last section for layout, but I'm hoping to be able to finish the pages asap! I'm aiming to be done in Feb! 

Apologies, I underestimated my health issues.

Hi! It can be played with as few as 2 players and up to 4 (since that's the number of playbooks we have at the moment!)

Since it's still early playtesting days I can't yet say what the "recommended" number is, but most games like this one play nicely with 2-4 players.


As of this time it's roughly "at some point in 2023, hopefully", unfortunately! The last six months or so have been especially hard health wise and my productivity output isn't great! I can't afford to hire people to work on it, but I'll post an update when I can. Thanks for asking!

An absolute terror to read, subtle and intoxicating. The emergent narrative the tables provide is exquisite.

I'm very pleased to say Cozy Town has successfully gotten many new folks into ttrpgs, it's one of the things I'm most proud of!! Fingers crossed for you! Working on the print version ASAP :)

thank you so much!! ❤️❤️❤️ I'm so grateful for everyone helping out with creating more community copies ✨

ooooh I think the margins may be a little funny but fingers crossed that it comes out okay! I think all the text should be within printer bounds? 

So sorry for the late reply!

I just went ahead and refreshed our community copies!

I'm not 100% sure if Cozy Town accommodates special needs, though I have heard of folks playing this game at all sorts of schools! Once you've grabbed a community copy please let me know if there's anything I can do to help the game be more inclusive for your students.

Thank you so much! In *case* the community copies run out before you can grab one, let me know and I'll be happy to send over a free download key!

yes! I'll be updating community copies in a bit (it's a manual process unfortunately haha). in case you don't get to them in time let me know and I can set up a free download key for you!

Hello, yes! I'll fix this soon, thank you so much! As a backer you should have access to the latest version of the handouts too :) 

it is a separate purchase, yes! at the bottom of the game page you can grab the Expansion Pass, it's $10 for all three Expansions.

As far as I know, not yet! I am planning on putting together a Sword Queen Games discord server but it'll be quite some time before that's set up unfortunately.

Thank you so much!! I just added a few more based on sales and ratings! in case they run out before you can grab one please email me at and I'll send over a download key!

I'm so glad!! I'll try my best to work on the final digital version soon! In the mean time I hope you enjoy the game!

Hello hello! thank you so much for the reminder, I'll go ahead and refresh the community copies! but in case they empty out before you get to it, please email me at and I'll get you a copy! ❤️

I appreciate you asking for a community copy!! ❤️❤️❤️

We haven't had new purchases recently but I'm happy to send you a download key! You can email me at :)

the long term goal is to definitely go to print, but I can't guarantee it'll look like this 😬 I've been told my layout design tends to look great digital but be bad for actual print haha! 

Thank you so much!! You absolutely hit the nail on the head, The Twilight Throne focuses on collaborative political intrigue and moves away from PVP. There are a lot of mechanical incentives to work together, though a few mechanics do encourage healthy competition...

Yeah I think when I started looking at culture with a colonial and post-colonial lens it was absolutely devastating! Working on The Twilight Throne has been very cathartic, while still producing a lot of rich concepts to inspire play!

I'm planning on soon addressing how each House embodies my Strong Post-Colonial Feelings, maybe through a Twitter thread or a blog post? When I do, I'll definitely reply again here and leave a link! Thank you for watching the Actual Play video!

And re: Evil Hat, it's my hope that I'll be able to work with a publisher like them! (Or even Evil Hat themselves!) Please cross your fingers and toes for this game, haha. Everyone's early interest and support definitely helps indie games find the right publishers, so thank you so much <3

Hello! I absolutely understand, I was a D&D GM and player that had a difficult time playing anything that wasn't D&D.

I'm thinking about your concerns and off the top of my head I feel like the best way to really convince a group is to see how into the setting/idea they are, since that's usually what's required to really break a habit like D&D.

I do think that if a GM only introduces the mechanics the players need in the moment (Blades even suggests not using all the mechanics, like position and effect, in the first session) then Forged in the Dark is much easier to pick up. FitD isn't crunchy but it has a lot of optional systems and strategies that lock into place as you like, right?

That being said, why I might end up doing is creating a different game that's set in The Twilight Throne that uses a different set of rules (like Trophy Dark for example), to act as a prequel or sequel (whathaveyou!) and pull the players in that way? But I'll definitely think about what you said and take into consideration as the game further develops!

I definitely want to include advice for beginners though, for both players and GMs!

I do think that you can definitely take a lot from Twilight Throne and use it in any game. Like you can follow the Throne story arc and pick up different cool plot elements (like the House Secrets to empower the human rebellion, or the Houses themselves could feature in your game).

Apologies for the long reply, but it was a good question that I really wanted to answer as best as I could! I really appreciate your interest!

Thank you so much!! ❤️❤️❤️

Thank you for asking!

Technically The Twilight Throne will cover just the absolute basics of Forged in the Dark, so some of the more in-depth things (like why Flashbacks are cool and such) won't be present.

That being said I'm thinking of adding a little more, so that folks won't have to reference two books in order to play this game! It's just a little tricky when things are still relatively in flux for the mechanics...but I'll definitely do my best!

Hi! This is a complete game, but it's not the final version of the game! Completely playable though and I've heard of a lot of folks having fun with the game.

Sword Queen Games is a "brand" in that all the games I create are Sword Queen Games :) Just a fun thing to say!

Hi! Yes they're both exactly the same! Thanks so much for asking :) 

Hello hello!

I'm planning to start up work again on Cozy Town and updating it around Feb next year!

I would have done it sooner but some intense mental health stuff happened around July that took months to recover from, and that slowed down the stretch goals fulfillment. But we should be back on track again soon!

hi! this is the version of the game that came out before the Kickstarter. It has two Incursions (the story of two of the Masks) and is incomplete.

I'm working on the final version (which will include an Incursion for each Mask), and Kickstarter backers will get it first. The Kickstarter is also the only way to get a physical copy of the game :) I hope that answers your question! 

Thank you so much!! I absolutely relate, writing this game was difficult for my grimdark brain too, haha.

Hi Mario!!! Thank you so much, I had way too much fun with the layout, haha.

To answer your questions (and sorry it took so long!):

1. Yes absolutely! As soon as I have the final version done.
2. I've tried quite a few and my favorite so far is the google jamboard!
