hold(ing) dear is a solo journaling game about a family’s past, present, and future as told through the stories of their personal belongings. All you need to play is a tarot deck and your analog or digital notetaking tools of choice.


Designed as a standalone game, it can also be played as a worldbuilding tool and easily be adapted for collaborative play online or off. This version is a work-in-progress created for the PIGSquad Tabletop Jam 2023 -- stay tuned for updates!


If you've played hold(ing) dear, I'd love to hear how it went! Drop me a line in the comments below, or on Twitter -- and thanks for playing!
