Language tells a story. Woven into the way we speak, we reveal what we care about, where we come from, and who we are.
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.
Some Isolations will be voluntary, others not. Some will choose to barricade themselves against an unforgiving world while others lie stranded and adrift from home. On their own, one thing is certain—these people will be left to simmer in what makes them special. They will change because of it. You will decide what they become.
Players take away both the story they’ve told and the dialect they’ve built together.
This version includes a full-color and text-hyperlinked copy of the 161 page rulebook along with a printable sheet containing all cards that can be cut for play. Everything needed for play is included.
