Be sure to speak loudly; the louder you are, the more right you must be.

A (slightly sarcastic) micro game about rebelling and marching upon the kingdom in a futile effort to reason with absolute authority. Divine Authority is a short 3+ player game designed to be printed in a 1-page zine format onto a single letter-sized sheet of paper, cut, and folded.

Will you be cast out of the kingdom? Or, will you accept the "perfectly reasonable" logic of divine authority?

The mechanics are simple: all you need is a bag of two different-colored tokens and a group of friends. The more friends you have playing, the louder and more boisterous your game will be (and that's a good thing.)

What's Included?

There are different formats of the game available depending on your preferred method of reading it:

  • A screen-friendly version meant for viewing on your mobile, tablet, or desktop screen. Images have been tagged with metadata and should be screen-reader compatible.
  • An 8-page mini-zine version that prints out onto a single-sided letter-sized sheet of paper with instructions on how to fold and assemble (requires a pair of scissors) can be found here.
  • A plain text version of the game rules.
