I Ship It: a Game of Romance and the Occasional Explosion

Introduction: I Ship It: a Game of Romance and the Occasional Explosion

About: Why hello there, Web Traveler, I am Colin. This is my little section of the web, filled with unique and profound imaginations.I enjoy crafting board games, photography, and writing. Enjoy my page.

I don't know about you, but I love shipping. Shipping is the romantic pairing of different characters and celebrities. I spend my days reading about all the Destiel, Johnlock, Appledash, Crundee, and more. This game helps inspire stories of ships in a new way: a game. Read on to see how this works.

Step 1: Create Deck

I made some already, but also included some blank sheets to help you create a custom deck. The deck is color coded, as follows:

  • Light Pink: Characters
  • Dark Pink: Events
  • White: Things and Places

Step 2: Print and Cut

Print the cards out, and cut them out.

Step 3: Play!

Start by drawing two character cards. This will be the couple you will be writing or telling a story about. It is very possible that the two people will be in different works. If that's the case, create an explanation why they're together.

Then tell a story, drawing inspiration from the events or thing and events decks. The game ends when the story reached some sort of resolution, or when your run out of cards.

    I can easily imagine a CAH-style game centered around this idea. Come up with weird or great pairings with a rotating judge each round... I may have to do this for my next get together

    You are a genius! I might have to revisit the rules a bit.

    Ah- I was wondering why you had a picture from Hyperbole and a Half in your intro. Then I saw the "meme generator" thingy at the bottom.

    I.... really don't get this. But that's probably just because I'm too old. It would be good if you could maybe add some more pictures, to show how the game is played a bit more. I'm sure a lot of people would like it.

    Will do. My printer died halfway through printing the second sheet, so I'll add more pictures once I get it printed. Thanks for the feedback.

    Ah, I see. You're welcome. I do try to be helpful, though I don't always succeed. Good luck. :-)
