Tell me that's a lie - A game in the form of a Villanelle

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, it's my shortest game yet!

The rules are written in the form of a villanelle - a 19-line fixed poetic form originating in renaissance France, popularized in modern times by Dylan Thomas' classic poem "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night". The cover photo is by the wonderful Lainey Koch.
