The Gathering Storm

Group Game Playtest

A scratch game for many players, about governing in the face of a gathering storm.

You’re islanders, in the face of a gathering storm, competing for power – and chocolate. Join one of three houses in the government of a small island, threatened by a gathering storm. You’ll compete for land, power and chocolate. This is a work-in-progress playtest of a game about democracy, with a twist in its tail.

Join a series of live playtests of The Gathering Storm in The Village area of the festival at Somerset House.
