The Girl is the hero of our tale. This is her story, and everyone playing the game contributes to it. In fact, the Girl is unique in the game because she’s the only character that everyone takes turns portraying.

Join us for two weeks of Girl Underground, a game inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Labyrinth, The Wizard of Oz, Spirited Away and similar tales about a curious girl and her strange companions as they travel through a wondrous world, complete a quest, and find the way back home.

New players are always welcome! Each week, we’ll review the game’s mechanics.

More about Girl Underground
The world the Girl finds herself in is equal parts fantastic and perplexing, full of characters who operate using strange logic and speak in riddles. Thankfully, she has found friends who she can rely on, and who rely on her in turn. These friends represent the archetypes found in these kinds of stories: talking animals, living dolls, friendly giants and other quirky companions.

Girl Underground uses a simple, easy to understand system built on the Apocalypse Engine, the same system used in popular games Apocalypse World, Monsterhearts and Night Witches.

Girl Underground is designed to tell a satisfying story in just one session.
