A downloadable game


Loopy Lore is a co-op storytelling card RPG with zero math where friends build worlds and tell tales. Players create a group goal, known as the ending of the story, at the beginning of the game, using just their cards and imagination. Their goal is to tell a story and realize said ending. If they are able to do that before all cards on the table have been used, the group wins the game.

Flip a card, read its content and spin your tale. However, all cards are randomly placed, so players have to figure out how to make them fit the story, no matter how crazy it may get. How would you, a blood-thirsty viking warrior, sneak into a wedding while being mobbed by lemurs? Choose a card and find out!

In Loopy Lore, everything is created on the spot.  And we mean everything. World, plot, characters, goals, it's all made fresh in a matter of minutes using hands of cards and random flips. The story is constructed using template "Structures" that indicate how long and how many cards the story will have. All cards are placed face down on the table, so players don't know their content until they are flipped.

Here's an example of a Structure:

There are over 2500 plot combinations, 324 cards and 13 structures. Every adventure is guaranteed to be a unique story no matter how many times you play.


During the Storytelling phase, each player gets to flip one card and talk about it for 30 seconds. They can guide the tale into whatever direction they feel fits their card best, no matter how crazy or out of place it may get (ever seen a warlock beatbox? We have). However, other players may interject with a Plot Twist during another player's turn. These cards contain strange cues, and could be the perfect solution to a particular plot problem or the provide a record-scratching reaction out of the other players. Whether your group is digging for buried treasure, has to clean up radioactive jam or just cannot stop dancing, Plot Twists are the way to shake the story loose.
