Dialect: A Game About Language and How It Dies (book & cards)
Jim likes Dialiect: A Game About Language and How it Dies because it's a deeply engaging one-shot game about communication that comes pre-loaded with half a dozen fascinating scenarios.
Dialect is a game about an isolated community, their language, and what it means for that language to be lost. In this game, you’ll tell the story of the Isolation by building their language. New words will come from the fundamental aspects of the community: who they are, what they believe in, and how they respond to a changing world.
Players take away both the story they’ve told and the dialect they’ve built together. Includes hardcover book and a deck of language generating cards used to play the game.
