Behold the telegraph, the fastest way for news to reach your remote little town! As the local telegraph operator, it's up to you to receive and deliver the townsfolk's telegrams. Each day you will make dice rolls to determine the nature of the telegrams received, and how the townsfolk react.

Telegraphical fits on a standard postcard, and was created as part of the Wish You Were Here Postcard Jam.

I liked this one because:

  • simplicity
  • one-playerness
  • cosy storytelling (storywriting rather: drafting a 15-words message is more difficult than it seems)

2p gaming (and creating a small word telegram after telegram) seems doable — and fun — too.


Thanks! Glad you like it. When I thought of putting dice roll results on a postcard, I was thinking it could be part of a 2p game. Then I walked to the post office, and the entire setting for this game came to me practically fully-formed.
