A wildly outrageous game of rhapsodic improvisation, bawdry tales, and interactive falsehoods.

Stay in the loop. This is the hottest Fabulist gossip, straight from the dev team. Unsub anytime.

What is it?

a game of brigands, thieves, and liars

For thousands of years, people have gathered socially in caves, around campfires, around kitchen tables. Since humans could talk, the favorite form of entertainment has been storytelling–and most of it was made up nonsense. It’s not quite a lost art, but most people don’t feel comfortable or creative enough to tell a fish tale or spin a yarn without a little help.

Tales of the Fabulist is a quick and easy way to beguile your friends with gut-busting laughter while fanning the tiny creative spark that we’ve all neglected. A whole round plays in 6 minutes. It's a party game, an improvisation system, a drinking game, an interactive fiction device, an ice-breaker at retreats, the best family game night experience ever, and an excellent gift for that person you want to get something for, but don't know what. You don’t have to be William Shakespeare to have a great time making sh*t up regaling your loved ones with a fabricated fable.

Embrace the Chaos

Every story is a work in progress.

How Does It Play?

basically, like a hot knife through butter

Deal out a Quest card and two Character cards, then take one minute to tell some of their story.

Pass the story to the next player, and watch as it goes wildly, hysterically off course.

After a few turns, you won't know how you got where you are, but everyone is so busy laughing, it doesn't matter.

Every Fable ends with a moral. Everyone gets to chime in with their own Moral of the Story, and the funniest one wins!
