200 words – Happiness Warrior

This little self-generating game was developed as a response to a challenge to create a game which can be explained in 200 words or less.

The download contains the full 200 word entry including a short description, and the game materials – an example of a card which could be created to start playing the game.

I like the idea that a game can be ‘created’ from nothing, by giving players simple instructions of how to create the playing materials as they go.  Each play of the game is unique, because each person will have their own values and ways that they want to make the world a better place.

This is a game played with strangers – who will never meet but whose cards will bring happiness to each other by sharing ‘quests’ that make the world a nicer place to be, one card at a time.
