I’m Sorry Did You Say Street Magic¬†is a GMless city-building story game. Discover and imagine a city filled with life and vivid detail, packed with a myriad of neighborhoods, landmarks, and residents. Discover their true names, and the ways that they intersect‚ÄĒthen set events in motion that will change or alter their relationships.

Players collaboratively explore the city they create together. Each turn, a player adds either a Neighborhood, a Landmark, or a Resident, nesting cards inside of each other to¬†showcase and spotlight the relationship between the city’s inhabitants, and the places where they live. These cards are then complicated by Events that take place in the city: festivals, elections, ceremonies, natural disasters, mysteries, or discoveries that change the flow and focus of play. As you play cards, you unearth the city’s true names ‚ÄĒ quirks and qualities that make this place wholly, intrinsically unique.

I’m Sorry Did You Say Street Magic¬†was originally conceived as a hack of Microscope, by Ben Robbins.
