‘One of the lyric games in here, "This Barn Is an RPG" is my favorite game of the year.
Even the nonsense in this book makes sense.’ - Josh T. Jordan, game designer

‘There are strings of words in here I'd straight up tattoo on my body that is a quote from Viditya Voleti that is an honest endorsement’ -Viditya Voleti, game designer

‘actually Taylor i've changed my mind about my review..... it's not "a good game imo", it's a VERY good game imo. please remove this libel or my lawyers will be in contact’ - Caro Asercion, game designer 

This is the only Truly Universal Gaming System, or TUGS for short.

Games: Unruly Rending, Piping Sense is not a collection of game design anti-advice, hot takes, lyric games, and other nonsense. It represents my personal growth as a designer in 2019 and acts as a manifesto for my design goals in 2020.

This book is not for feint of hearts. It has really nice bent billiard bird eyed briar pipe with bent saddle stem on it. You must prepare yourself for a heart attack. Solid art. Solid page layout that no page goes wasted. You will rarely see a margin between a line. Very captivating. You will be bewildered by the text and what the words implies. I've bought it. For a dollar. A steal.


I downloaded this game for free because I don't have a lot of money but having read the game I regret my choice and would like to pay some money for it! How do you recommend I do that? Should I download it again? It's great btw
