You find yourself seated at a table among a group of people you have never met before, in a place that feels…familiar. You have never been here, and yet the atmosphere is comforting, disarming. It feels a bit like home.

A Diner at the End is a collaborative, improvisational storytelling game that invites at least two players to share the experiences, dreams, and regrets of characters whose time has been spent. Players take on the personas of people across space and time, using a standard deck of playing cards as a means to guide their characters' conversations and reflections.

This game celebrates the lives we lead—in all of their joys and sorrows—and challenges players to find contentment in the limited time afforded to us all.

The A Diner at the End PDF features...

  • Concise rules for playing the game
  • Easy-to-use tables to inspire character stories

Paying $5 or more unlocks the Menu Print edition, a 12"x18" spread which adds...

  • Tables to help inspire your character's origin

Many thanks for making this! Love systems where I can use some playing cards rather than dice

I’m so glad you like it! I’m a big fan of alternative systems too, and this was my first experience writing for playing cards.

If you’re looking for more card-based TTRPGs and you like dungeon crawly games, check out Deck Delvers by Cantina Thirteen!

Thanks so much for playing, have a lovely day!


I'm furiously attempting to figure out how to inject this game into my veins because it's the exact style I like


I’m so glad!! Enjoy the game :D
