A two player storytelling game about the last hour of a long journey home.


The Cloister is a short, one-session storytelling game for two players.

One person plays The Pilot, who is finally in orbit around their home planet after a very long time away. 

The other person plays The Operator, a stranger on the ground who is trying to help the pilot get home.

The story takes place between the two of you in conversation as you navigate atmospheric reentry and fill the dead air of your radio with stories.


Playbook is 10 pages, printable. There are two options - as you'd expect, "TheCloister_double_pages.pdf" is made of two-page spreads, while "TheCloister_single_pages.pdf" is single pages. To play the game you will need one 6 sided die. Games should take between half an hour and an hour to complete (about the length of a real atmospheric reentry).

My pal and I just finished telling our story of Captain Juno Rogers and Operator Moss Speck and had a great time. Thank you for the lovely 2-player game :)
