Description Edit | History

Breaking the Ice is a Romantic Comedy role playing game for two players. Players help one another tell the tale of romance arising between two characters, and the set-backs and wacky twists the lovers' tale may take. Quick and easy, the game can be played in one sitting with no prior preparation required.

Play out the ups and downs of a couple's first three dates. From first bumbling attempts to get to know one another, to the stirrings of trust and desire. Watch the attraction flare, and see if the flame will light a fire that will last for a lifetime, or just burn brightly for a moment, and then flicker out.

- Unique word-web character generation.
- Simple and intuitive mechanics.
- Collaborative, synergistic play.
- Great introductory game for non-gamers.
- Rules for more than two players.
