A one page GM-less roleplaying game of suspense for 1 or more players.

The Waiting is inspired by the anxiety caused by waiting for the unknown.

In The Waiting you play as a character in a setting where it hasn’t happened yet. It is definitely going to happen, but no one knows when it will happen. Until it happens, there is only The Waiting.

What are you waiting for?

Files included with this download:

  • The Waiting PDF (Printer Friendly)
  • The Waiting rich and plain text files (Screen Reader Ready)
  • TTRPG Safety Toolkit Guide PDF by Kienna Shaw and Lauren Bryant-Monk.

Some have shared that they think this game is not worth $3, even though I also offer community copies for free and the preview images contain the whole game. I agree it’s not worth $3 — it’s now worth $500. So give me a half-k or get it free. Either way, stop complaining about people charging for their work.
