We were just a small town. Ordinary. Boring even. 

Then the Incident changed everything . . .

Talk of the Town is a card-based storytelling game for 2-5 players lasting for 1.5 to 3 hours. Play focuses on the tangled relationships of a small town and how one pivotal event changes everything.

You do not need a GM or prep time; the game's unique card system will generate story prompts as you go:

10 - Incident Cards
30 - Role Cards
11 - Scene Framing Cards
30 - Trait Cards
24 - Location Cards
40 - Question Cards

Together you create a story of interconnected lives and drama similar to ensemble-cast movies like Crash or Love Actually.  At the end of the game, your characters must face each other and decide if they draw closer together, or distance themselves:

This game includes multiple formats for play. You can print out the cards; load up the game in Tabletop Simulator; or use the original digital cards to play in your digital format of choice (e.g. a custom Roll20 deck).

This game is part of #ReCo2k19 and is inspired by Avril Lavigne's debut album Let Go.
