Imaginary Problems


The world is a scary place, and sometimes the events in the world around kids changes how they see things - how they experience the world. Other times their parent makes them wear socks, and that's basically the end of the world.


Imaginary Problems is a game about being the imaginary friend of a kid.

The gameplay involves working with your group to find imaginative solutions to real problems!

The game supports 3-5 players, does not require a GM, and takes about 2 hours.

Only materials required are writing/drawing supplies (pen and paper or digital equivalents) and a 1d10 or digital die roller

The game was written for online play using voice/video chat, but could also be played in person.


Characters are created through a series of collaborative games that inspire players to tap into childlike wonder and silliness. The characters then calibrate the severity of world events that affect their Kids. Each week there is a new world event, but your Kid is also facing challenges a home, or school. Players calibrate their own experience by choosing how intense their Kid's problem is. One Kid might be dealing with the loss of a family pet while another ate a crayon. In the world of the imaginary, all things are equal.


By the end of the game players will have had a wide array of emotional experiences, and hopefully quite a bit of fun.
