It's been almost two years since rebel forces occupied the city and government forces surrounded and laid siege to your home. The city has been reduced to the prize in a tug-of-war between two equally vicious and uncaring factions. You don’t care about this war. It doesn’t matter who wins or loses anymore, if it ever did. All that matters to you is that your home, the place you grew up and built your life, is being torn apart, day by day, brick by brick. You just want this war to end before there’s nothing left to fight over.
The Forgotten is a live acting game that takes place in a city under siege during the last days of a civil war. Players confront hunger, injury, and demoralization through a simple system that uses a custom deck of cards and a customizable soundtrack. As a group, they will create a desperate story of courage and sacrifice. Will they scrape by and live to see another day?
The game uses a unique set of cards that reveal events that happen to your characters during the night. It includes a pdf of the cards to print and cut-out at home and an audio soundtrack to keep pace of the days and nights.
4-10 players; plays with or without a full-time facilitator; 2-4 hour game length plus 1 hour set-up; adult themes, not for children; medium-to-heavy intensity experience.
