I am about to go on a journey. If I ever come back home—I definitely won’t be the same.

But, that’s still a few days away. Today, I’ve got packing to do, family to wish good-bye, friends to have last drinks with, and lovers to give promises...
that I probably can’t keep.

Wanderlust is a storytelling game for 2-4 Players. You work together to tell the story of a single protagonist—The Wanderer—who is preparing to leave on an important journey.

The Players take turns framing a scene using a series of prompts and taking notes and sketching in The Wanderer's journal as the Wanderer says good-bye to the people and places that are important to them.

What's Included

  • Core Rules - A 32 page rule book explaining how to play the game.
  • Event Cards - A set of Event Cards to be printed onto card stock and cut along the crop marks.
  • The Wanderer's Journal - An 8-page booklet that serves as your character sheet. It is intended to be printed onto 2 double-sided sheets of letter-sized paper (flip on short edge) and folded into a booklet.
