From the Game's Introduction:
Hop Scotch is a game about human tragedy, misery, World War II drama, and spinning around until you're dizzy!
To play, you need:
- Some place you can safely spin around
- A soft patch of grass to fall on
- Some spheres to represent the Sefirot
- Someone to stay level headed (the GM)
The setting of Hop Scotch is the dark times of World War II. You, and the other players, play characters residing in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, on their last legs and at wits end. You are in ill spirits, and know that the end is near, but the bitter-sweet prison wine someone made up is getting you by for tonight.
You've seen the smoke stacks, you've heard horror stories about what awaits you from the guards, and you are living in abject filth. You know that they're coming for you tomorrow. You are too weak to fight. You can barely feel your heart beating in your chest.
