After The Party


After the Party is a gm-less roleplaying game for 2-6 players unofficially based on the album of the same name by The Menzingers presented here as a 16 page zine.

Players use paper and 6-sided dice to make a map on which they will draw Memories and routes of Travel, creating a physical relic at the end to remember the game. They'll also use a deck of standard playing cards to generate scenes and prompts along the way.

This is an exploration of nostalgia and memory, how present day can diminish or magnify the effects of rose-tinted glasses. You will wax poetic about times you once had together and trudge through times you’re making now.

This is a map-making game, exploring space and time together and seeing how changes in one can beget the other. You will create a physical relic together representing your journey that you can look back upon fondly once your game is over.

This is a test of relationships, examining how the line between best friend/partner/sister and annoyance/enemy/antagonist can blur in dire circumstance, especially in close quarters.  You will bond and bicker with other characters and see how changing relationships affect memory.

Heavily inspired by The Deep Forest by Mark Diaz Truman & Avery Alder Mcdaldno.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
