A downloadable game

Ancestors is a narrative tabletop game for 1-4 players that can be played over a few hours. It may be played as part of an RPG campaign (as a backstory generation tool), or just for the sake of telling a good story. Players will trace the family history of a descendant through multiple generations. 

You'll need: 

  • A standard deck of playing cards
  • A large space, possibly on a table or floor. Even better if you can draw on it.
  • Two six-sided dice
  • A series of small tokens (50 per player at most)
  • Something to write with
  • Index Cards (if you like to write)
