This is a slightly expanded review which I featured on Reddit, which you can view here. It won the monthly review contest there for April 2019. I’m trying out a slightly new format for this sort of content, so feedback is appreciated.
What is Golden Sky Stories?
“Golden Sky Stories is a heartwarming, non-violent role-playing game from Japan, by Ryo Kamiya. In this game, players take on the role of henge, animals that have just a little bit of magical power, including the ability to temporarily take on human form. You can be a fox, raccoon dog, cat, dog, rabbit, or bird, and each kind has their own special magical powers. Players will then attempt to solve problems around a small enchanted town with ingenuity, co-operation and friendship.
Golden Sky Stories requires one Narrator, 2-4 players, pencils and paper, and tokens to keep track of Dreams.”
