Winner - "Overall Favorite" - of the 2011 RPG Solitaire Challenge:
"A solitaire role playing game is an elusive thing. A game that lets someone create a story on their own, while retaining the tug and pull of a game with a game master or other players. Storyleaves gives a player the tools to sit down and craft a tale that though it springs from their creativity is surprising and takes on a life of its own. World, character and story are built out of elements decided on by the player at the beginning, and then the tale takes form through turns for the Protagonist and Antagonist in turn. The story leaves, cards with custom story elements created at the start of play, giving unexpected form to the twist and turns, decisions and actions of the characters....Something that anyone can use to while away a few hours and discover new worlds....I heartily recommend this game as my favorite of the RPG Solitaire Challenge entries."
A way to make a little story, about the size of a story-poem, or a fairy tale, or the summary of a TV episode … in an hour or so. It might have a sad ending … it might have a happy ending … you won’t know until you play.
And it’s also a game - if you play it well you can maybe make things end well.
