Corporate Onboarding - Solo journaling game


I’m going to need you to go ahead and play this solo journaling game about navigating corporate bureaucracy. So if you could get started that would be great.


We are delighted to welcome you into the Initech corporationfamily. You are now a valued member of the team and we expect you to act as such. Failure to do so will result in your immediate termination.

We expect teamwork, but we also expect you to be productive on your own. Once you have completed your onboarding tasks, please report to each of your six superiors to show them your TPS report. Once you have reported to each of them, we can discuss your future at Initech. Failure to report will result in your immediate termination.

To be successful at Initech, you will need to supply your own materials:

  • Something to write on - this is your TPS report
  • A flat surface on which to build your map of the office - your cubicle desk will suffice
  • A standard deck of cards without the jokers, shuffled - this is your Inbox
  • Two six-sided dice (2d6) - these are your Task Dice
  • Index cards or random slips of paper - sticky notes are available from the storeroom
  • A small token (like a paper clip, or a red stapler)

The downloads include two tri-fold pamphlets (one for the rules, the other for the info tables) and a printable staff profile that acts as your character sheet for the game.

The game includes unique events that pull you toward your goal of reporting to your six bosses. Failure to report to them before you get five warnings means you lose, so you better start using the correct covers on your TPS reports - you saw the memo about that, right?

File Size:
1 MB
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.
