I spent all last week creating a new game with the help of one of my favorite game designers Jason Morningstar (creator of Fiasco), with art from my brother Jeremy Canning, editing by Robert Bruce, and inspired by the work of Just Housing Olympia.

It's a game about helping the houseless with their trash and elder dragon-Gods of garbage. It's not a videogame, it's just a pdf rules document. It's not really a game I imagine many people will be playing during the pandemic. Some of you might not really consider it a game, in some ways a call to action, in others it's a story, a guided session of make believe, or a thought experiment. It's really whatever you want to make of it.

It's pay what you want, but also consider donating to JHO. And I could really use your help sharing the game! Most of all I just want people to play it and hear what people think about it.

I also did a big write up on the process of making of the game and the concepts behind it, which you can read here:
