A downloadable game

Buy Now$4.00 USD or more

My Dearest Colleague is a game in which two friends write letters to each other. Each writer takes on the persona of a fictional character, describing the imaginary events that comprise and surround their life. Players receive writing prompts via playing cards sent with their letters, and track the status of their fictional endeavors until the game ends. A game of My Dearest Colleague may last anywhere from a month to a year—it is a slow paced, meditative pastime.

My Dearest Colleague is in editing and layout, but I wanted to get a readable version out in front of folks before going further. You'll also need to grab a playset to play the game—The Phenomenal Apparatus is included with the game and hopefully, there'll be more soon!

Where is the playset available? I think I need to see that to get a feel for how the game plays.
