Dialect is a game about an isolated community, their language, and what it means for that language to be lost. In this game, you’ll tell the story of the Isolation by building their language. New words will come from the fundamental aspects of the community: who they are, what they believe in, and how they respond to a changing world. Players take away both the story they’ve told and the dialect they’ve built together.
- Hard cover color book
- Deck of language generating cards
- Glossopoet Edition (includes hardcover book and cards) features a handmade cloth bag to keep the game book and cards, illustrated by master letterer Jill DeHaan and screen printed at Deernicorn’s workshop in Olympia WA.
