The Flower Court is a game for 5-12 players, and takes around 2-3 hours. The full PDF is 26 pages long, and contains rules on adapting for online play, help with flirting, safety mechanics, sample setting questions, and a dozen character sheets, along with a gorgeous cover by Taz Meyers. The rules are intuitive and easy to grasp, and the game has been playtested extensively, both in real life and online.
The mechanics of the game are based on games the author would play when they were a teen, and naturally lead to engaging stories and exciting moments. The Flower Court is fundamentally queer, and heavily incorporates camp aesthetics and complex relationships to gender and identity.
While The Flower Court was designed to be about representations of romantic desire, it also contains multiple characters who are disconnected from romance, and every character has tools for being aromantic.
The Flower Court is the perfect game for when you want to take a break from the alienation of daily life and embrace a delightful mockery of how the 1% must surely have it.
