A downloadable game

Brilliant Rooks Change Lives is a bookmark, a mindful reading exercise and a LARP about a rook who will be with you while you read and ease your burdens in exchange for words. The game is intended to be printed and used. I really hope that you enjoy it and that taking time to slow down helps you.

The game is inspired by my local community bookshop, The Bookery, and dedicated to the wonderful people who make it as brilliant as it is. 

Enormous thanks to my friends, family and the kind folks of the NSR Discord Community for their help.

Nice... I think rook is like a companion type of game. Allows us to be alone and get lost 'safely' and explore the world of different books.

:D lovely game design.

Thank you so much!


Good stuff! I like the idea of a mindful activity in a bookmark, I plan on printing it later this week when I have a printer available. 

I hope you enjoy it ☺️
