A work-from-home web-conferencing LARP

 

Take the role of a game developer with no time, no plan, and a giant ego. This party game allows the players to compete and cooperate to make some of the worst game ideas of all time.

 

This satirical game has a 40 minute time limit, and requires only some extremely complicated technology to set up a web-conferencing group (like a phone).

10 Paces brings Wannabe Games flair to the western world. This game uses Wannabe Games' Pace Die system.

 

10 Paces is a simple and flexible game that allows players to pick up and start playing in just a few minutes.

A game of unfolding personalities. You are stranded on a deserted island in the middle of the ocean. The crash landing has left you with mild amnesia, and you are slowly unfolding bits and pieces of who you are.

 

The only things you need to play are players, pencils, and paper.

In Some Assembly Required, you play as action figures pitted against household dangers like pets, people, and other playthings.

 

Are you a superhero, a soldier, an alien, or something else? And just how durable is your plastic?

Roll to Yeet brings Wannabe Games flair to a universe where slang is magick. Use and misuse slang in creative ways to personify the Gen Z and Millennial rebellion against the Boomer menace. Then Yeet them.
 

We finished this game in a McDonald's on the way to Origins Game Fair (or Gen Con? I can't remember.)

Jess asked her students what the cool Gen Z slang words were, and she's pretty sure they lied about some of them.

Quest For The Belt: Fantasy Fighting Federation is a 1-page RPG that brings the biggest Fantasy Fighting Federation event of all time to your town.

No, I'm the chosen one! is Wannabe Games newest GM-less, competitive, story-driven game that only requires D6 to play.

A social deduction game for 5-15 people. The cult of the magic 8-ball is about passing new tenets and making heretics drink the deadly blue liquid. Quick to learn and adjustable to just about any group size or style.

 

Comes with a free drink recipe for the blue liquid!

Random by Day, Super by Night is as much about creating a superhero as it is playing as one. (Seriously: even if you don't play the game, just roll up a character. It's fun.)

 

Like all of the greatest superheroes, you get your powers by accident and roll for them accordingly. There are over 3 million possible combinations!

 

Sometimes fate makes you into Superman, and sometimes you have to fake it as Aquaman.

Oops! All GMs is a big change of pace, turning the normal game on its head by having many GMs play with a singular player.

 

Using Wannabe Games' Pace Die system the game takes narrative role play and mixes it with a push you luck mechanic. All of the GMs play as a musical supergroup that refuses to play their next gig before the player solves all of their little problems. These can range from the wrong colored M&M's to being in jail.

Let's Be Grandma is Wannabe Games' first ever game! Play grandmas on grandma adventures, like getting people to eat your potato salad during the church potluck or saving the queen from an assassination plot.

 

This game is similar to Lasers and Feelings and All Outta Bubblegum. It's fun, quirky, and has pockets full of hard candy. Just be careful--once you lose the respect of all your grandchildren, YOU ARE NO LONGER A GRANDMA.

666: The Devil's in the Dice Rolls allows you to sell your soul to Wannabe Games for a chance at playing a new game... just joking.

 

Players take a pact with the devil to try to right a wrong in their life. Yet every roll gives the devil a chance to claim your soul. Any time a player rolls 6 6 6, the devil's grip on your immortal soul tightens.

 

(We are particularly proud of the pun, thanks for wondering.)

Rush home from school to make sure you don’t miss this Very Special Episode where you play as a character in an after-school special. Act out scenes of peer pressure and scandal with your friends, as threats such as “Marijuana,” “Dungeons & Dragons,” and “Satanic rock and roll” invade your social circle. You can just say No, or you can get hysterical and tell everyone your Uncle cut off someone's head after smoking pot just one time.

 

This game is GM-less!
