3 Day Weekend

Watermarked PDF

No Bullies. No Grown Ups. No Game Master.

3 Day Weekend (3DW) is a tabletop roleplaying game where you play as kids in a clubhouse over a long weekend. You hang out, tell jokes and stories, trade cards, go on fetch quests, and eventually face off against your rivals in your chosen game. It is rules-lite and gm-less: everyone works together to have the best time and best the bullies. 3DW is designed & illustrated by Adam Vass and published by World Champ Game Co.

This game emulates a lot of Nickelodeon shows from the 90's like Hey Arnold! and Rocket Power and movies like The Mighty Ducks, Little Rascals, Peanuts, Brink, and Space Jam.


The game requires just the rules, a standard deck of playing cards, and some notecards for your characters. 3DW uses different mechanical systems for each of the three days:

  • Friday is for Hanging Out using a collection of mini-games with varied player counts similar to RPGs like Mobile Frame Zero: Firebrands from Lumpley games. Your kids will do what we did when we were 10: ride bikes, tell secrets, eat snacks, and daydream, each using various systems that allow you to explore your characters relationships and gain cards you'll use the rest of the weekend. At some point Friday, you'll come face to face with your Rivals (bullies, rich kids, etc.) and challenge them to a showdown on Sunday in the sport or game of your choice!
  • Saturday is for Making Plans. Kids can go it alone or form small teams with each other to gain intel, find tools, and otherwise try to gain advantages for the coming face-off with your Rivals. You'll do this using the cards you acquired Friday to play the kid's classic: Go Fish! Players portray their character kid when going on their own quest and describe setting or offer challenges during other kid's quests, responsibilities left to a game master in more traditional games but shared by all players here.
  • Sunday is for The Showdown, the confrontation between your group of friends and your rivals. You'll use the cards you acquired on other days to collaboratively tell the story, using sets of matching cards to make big impact on the outcome. Your group's ability to work cleverly together on the third day will determine whether you come out victorious or if you'll have to mend your wounds at the clubhouse in defeat.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
