Ocean Tides is a GMless collaborative storytelling game of entanglements at sea and is a hack of the game Mobile Frame 0: Firebrands by Vincent Baker. In it, you assume the role of either a Mermaid, a Pirate, or a Naval Officer and you try to create messy entanglements with your fellow players. Fight with your friends, ally with your rivals, and fall in love with your enemies.

You will need

  • 3-6 players
  • 2+ hours
  • A handful of coins per player

The "pretty" version includes a more robust layout but is functionally the same as the non-pretty PDF.

This game is such a joy! Full of seafaring delight! 


Great game! The factions are all really cool, there's some exclusive mini games that really land well to pirate fiction, the cover art is gorgeous 10/10
