Each is painted a garish colour and prepped to "slip" into a crazy new plane of existence."
The Devil's RPG Dictionary was the second in my "Too Far?" series at story-games.com.

The current edition of the DRPGD can be downloaded here.

Inspired by a post by Ben Lehman, "TELL ME THAT'S A LIE" is a one-page storygame for two people, which uses the flip of a coin to tell a story in three acts. Available in PDF format on RPGnow.com, it's my shortest game yet!
