After lots of demand, the last print run of Dialect is sold-out! The next pre-order is expected to ship in late December. Pre-order now to reserve a copy. If ordering as a gift for the holidays, the digital PDF is available immediately. 

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. Includes hardcover book, deck of language generating cards, 4 core playsets, 11 contributed playsets by renowned game designers, linguists and activists, and a digital copy delivered immediately.

A story game for 3-5 players in 3-4 hours. 

Here's a preview of the game.

If you're extra ambitious, you can also see the game played online.

Available as:

  • The Digital Edition
  • The Standard Edition (includes the digital edition, hardcover book, and language deck)
  • The Glossopoet Edition (includes everything from the Standard Edition and a one-of-a-kind cloth bag to keep the game book and cards, illustrated by master letterer Jill DeHaan and printed in Olympia Washington)
