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