This is a small volume of game poems that were written in the first half of 2010, edited and compiled into handy booklet format for your carrying around and playing enjoyment. The games don't require anything that you wouldn't normally have at hand - pens and paper, coins or tokens, a regular deck of playing cards, or normal six-sided dice. The topics run from goofy ("Buster") to thoughtful ("The Leaves Will Bury") to horrible ("The Sign of the Great Old Elder God From Beyond") to heartbreaking ("Goofball").
A "game poem", or "role-playing poem" is a little game that you can pick up and play in fifteen minutes or so. There's no preparation time, nothing to get between you and immediate fun. Game poems usually address some specific mood or emotion, or focus on one particular theme. First and foremost, a game poem is just there to be taken in and experienced with a friend or group of friends for a few moments, and hopefully, something small and wonderful will happen in the process.
