It was supposed to be the greatest day of your life, the pinnacle, you doubted it could ever be cooler than this; you were invited to a birthday party. But now you're here you're not so sure: someone's widdled in their shoe, the little kid next door is hyped on sugar, the birthday boy is crying, and now you all have to play Pass the Parcel. Just pray they don't get round to Charades or Pin the Tail on the Donkey.
Join the horror of a 5 year old's birthday party: the laughs, the tantrums, the food stains. But it's OK - nobody loses an eye!
But Nobody Loses An Eye! is a modern day live roleplaying game about the magic, chaos and terror of childhood, for 8-12 people. The characters are children in the 4-7 age bracket, at a fifth birthday party. While there are some competing goals and personality pressures in the game, But Nobody Loses An Eye! is mostly about giving people licence to let loose their inner five year old. The game will take about two and a half hours to run, including setup and debriefing. This game has a realist setting and is rules light. It also has a low entry threshold for people who have not attended a live roleplaying game before. While the overall tone is rather silly, there are some characters who have sad themes.
