Sign: A Game About Being Understood
Jim Likes Sign: A Game About Being Understood because it tells a story you've probably never heard, by the designers of the brilliant Dialect RPG!
Nicaragua in the 1970s had no form of sign language. In 1977, something happened. Fifty deaf children from across the country were brought together to an experimental school in Managua. Without a shared language to express themselves, the children did the only thing they could -- they created one. In Sign, we follow a small piece of their journey.
Sign includes rules and a deck of cards to drive the LARP-style play. Players will embody students on their first day of school. Along the way, they'll make friends, learn about themselves, and build their own language together, piece by piece.
