Good Little Games is a showcase of free print-and-play microgames, created and run by game designer Brett J. Gilbert.
All the games use a maximum of only 18 single-sided cards, which all fit on just a couple of sheets. Some games require a few other ordinary components, such as counters, player tokens or regular six-sided dice, plus perhaps a way to keep score.
What’s a microgame?
There is no official definition, but the term ‘microgame’ is usually applied to small card games which typically have under 20 cards and require only a small number of other components.
We have adopted the definition, suggested by designers Alan Paull and Tony Boydell, of just 18 cards, with the further limitation that they must be single-sided. This keeps the printing requirements to a minimum, since all the cards for each game fit neatly on just a couple of sheets of paper or card.
Are the games really free?
Because games are meant to played, and we want our games to be played by as many people as possible.
Who are the designers?
Our designers are an eclectic collective of (currently) UK- and US-based professional and hobbyist game designers who have all had the same thought: “A microgame? I could make one of those!”
