I loved this game to pieces. From the layout to the writing and the flavor. Check out my extensive review here: https://cassimothwin.com/2022/03/10/ttrpg-review-sanguine-masquerade/
A downloadable heist
SANGUINE MASQUERADE is a tabletop game with optional journaling elements for one player. You attempt to make your fortune by robbing strange and terrifying artifacts from the City's yearly Masquerade, a party for the wealthy and powerful done in the name of one of their many strange and unknowable gods.
One night to make your fortune or succumb to the strangeness of the Masquerade. Dare to take what isn't yours. Prepare to see what you shouldn't.
Play requires a deck of playing cards and a coin. Please note this game includes gore, body horror, violence, paranoia, and ritualistic self-harm.
Made for the First Three Words Jam, inspired by the words: masquerade, feed, god.

I thought this was great. Played it twice in a row- great experience both ways. (Lost twice!)
Both of my sessions took about 30-45 minutes of writing and thinking, including setting up and cleaning the cards/markers afterwards. Lots of the prompts left me tantalized, and a lot reminded me of some of my favorite scenes in fiction.
Thanks for the experience(s).
Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it, and that's about what I hoped the length would be for other people (I know I'm a bad estimator of time because I have a very fast reading speed for my fairly long prompts).
Two losses, oof! Hopefully you find better luck next time you attend the Masquerade!
