a meta solo journaling game of marginalia

You found a journal and you have opinions. Make your mark. 

In the Margins is a solo journaling game in which you play someone who found a mysterious journal and is leaving their comments in the margins of the journal.

What you need to play:

  • a written journal, preferably one produced by a solo journaling game (non fiction or autobiographical fiction might work as well)
  • pen, pencil, markers or anything else to deface annotate the journal
  • a d6

The pdf contains the front and back for a bookmark the size of an A5 paper cut in half length wise. For accessibility I've also added a Markdown version of the game.

In the Margins was made for the Scissors and Glue Jam #2 using dry transfer letters, cutting and pasting the typed rules & annotating it with a red marker. Join the jam!
