I backed the game on Kickstarter, and Universal Ball Anthology definitely delivered. I loved the wacky writing, gameplay, and illustrations. Looking forward to their next one!
Universe Ball Anthology #1: Lizards & Wizards!
A downloadable TTRPG
FUNDED ON KICKSTARTER
For fans of absurdist humor and atmospheric science fiction...
WELCOME TO THE WEIRD WORLD OF UNIVERSE BALL ANTHOLOGY
There are stories in the stars—huge, bizarre events, isolated by the vastness of the cosmos. By the time you finish this sentence alone, an infinite amount of worlds will evolve, discover, love, hate, die, be resurrected by goo-men, and die again, and yet, you will never even notice because you are too busy doing the same. There is so much history occurring in silence; the only shared constant amongst them is the absurdity of it all.
With this book, you will become an explorer of these absurd events. Each Universe Ball will provide you with the coordinates to one or more of these worlds where you will become key players in cosmic stories whether it be on a planet trillions of miles away, or right here on Earth. You will find wonder, horror, mystery, and more specifically, lizard people named Tobeep.
2 BIZARRE RULES-LIGHT GAMES
Universe Ball Anthology is a series of silly, scifi tabletop roleplaying games that focus on odd discoveries, creative problem solving, and being stupid with your friends. This first book comes paired with two adventures...
1. The S.S.O.S. (6-chapter adventure campaign):
In this wacky, story-heavy heist, you and your friends will play as a crew of lizard thieves and explore a strange space cruise ship in an attempt to rob its interdimensional fuel, all while dealing with an array of vacationing alien criminals and misfits.
As players search for the ship's fuel, they’ll discover many relaxing amenities onboard the ancient S.S.O.S. such as a pool filled with sky, an infinite buffet, and a procedurally generated theatre. The ship is chock-full of absurd encounters at every turn, like a horny floor that enjoys being stepped on, a clock that removes the linear experience of time when observed, and a baguette that makes your voice really loud.
Not only is this game full of silly absurdity, but as you play, you’ll uncover a mystery and learn the disturbing truth about the enigmatic captain of the ship.
The setting can be ported into any suitable system!
- 2-4 Players (Plus a GM)
- 6 Chapters
- Each Chapter is 1-3 Hours

2. Yep, That’s Me (mini sandbox one-shot):
Attend a medieval convention in the far future of Earth in this mini, chaotic sandbox adventure. The players will start this game in a randomized story climax and then flash back to the beginning where they will have to figure out how to get back to the end.
