A downloadable Micro Game Collection

Buy Now$5.00 USD or more

Sometimes you want to play a game and all you have on you is your phone, maybe a wallet. The Houserule Collection is a micro game trilogy designed for exactly that situation. It presents the unofficial Lone Archivist House Rules in three popular genres for tabletop role-playing games.

These rules-lite games are perfect for last minute games, on-the-fly games, or even impromptu sessions. Each fits on the front and back of a standard index card (or just a swipe away on a phone).

The Original Trilogy

Fight against monsters in the expansive wilderness and explore vast climes for gems and treasure.

Race against colorful spaceships or against a leaking oxygen tank in this blue-collar galaxy.

Slink through the seedy underbelly of a sprawling metropolis fighting AI Tech and Contra Gangs.

Your download includes:

  • A ZIP file including all three Micro Games v1.1 with...
    • PNG versions of each game
    • PDF versions of each game
    • 2 Bonus versions of Voidripper
      • Voidripper v1.0 - Gran Prix Edition (pictured below)
      • Voidripper v1.0 - Mercenary Edition

If you like the rounded corners in the example picture, grab a corner rounder like this one.

The Houserule Collection Expanded

Additional games that follow the form of the Original Trilogy but delve into new subgenres or mechanics. THC Expanded includes...

A hack of Legend takes your adventures to the swamps. Knock back some 'shine and fight against cryptids in abandoned schools and boggy ruins.

I got the original houserule collection a while back! Great work- these are quick to play and visually satisfying. Is there a way to get the expansions without having to buy it again?


This is really, really excellent. Evocative and straight to the point. Makes me want to launch into a game right now!
