I’m working on a zine (or maybe a small book) of people’s stories of games they made up as children. This can be a simple story or paragraph or two — or you can go into more detail.
Examples — in one vignette, I describe the rules of a game my sister and I would play that we called “Animal Wrestling”. In another, we get a true confession of what 4 year old me was pretending while in a bubble bath (alien planet; dome cities).
Email me your stories of home-brewed games – whether played solely in your imagination or with siblings/friends!

JoEllen told me about your project. It reminded me of a poem by my mom, Jane Shore, called “Washing the Streets of Holland. You can find it here if you’d like to read it.
Miss seeing you at Pinhole and hope you are well,
How much will contributors be compensated for these stories?
Nothing if it’s a zine and something if I make it an e-book
I mean, unless you really want something in which case I can pay 😀
