My Life in Cardboard is a game about packing, losing and rediscovering the objects which mean something to us. It’s an introspective game, and the “rules” are just guidelines. It is a creative writing exercise with few mechanics on top. All you need to play is some paper and a pen.

Well done in making this little gem and thank you for making it! You have used a simple, creative mechanic and coupled it with the kinds of situations that evoke strong emotions in anyone who has broken or lost something that they care about. Even just reading through the rules has stirred up some memories that I have of things that I have lost or broken throughout my life.

I am very much looking forward to playing it to see what I end up writing down.


Thank you for the wonderful comment, I hope you enjoy playing it!
