House Game – Talopeli
painted rug, 2008 Finland

Homes are safe places and shelters:
The best dreams I have had are dreams of large houses where there are lots of secret passages and escape routes. But right now my favourite structures are lean-to shelters.

This is a game for which the players can make up the rules. At the beginning of every decent game there is always a dispute about the rules of the game.
In this game there can be multiple players.
Everyone takes something that they can use to play with. You need a dice (possibly the big fuzzy kind that you hang from your rear-view mirror) or something of the sort.

The game also includes a fabric-pen, which you can use to add in shortcuts, escape routes and other missing or necessary information.
