Description

Our intrepid author Paige Turner is back! In Paperback Adventures, you get to play as the protagonist in one of Paige's wild brainstorming sessions. Conquer a menagerie of pulp novel characters in this solo deckbuilding word game.

Just like in the original game Paperback — and the follow-up game Hardback — you will build your own deck of cards throughout the game, and those cards will have letters to help you spell words every turn. But in Paperback Adventures, instead of testing your wordsmithing wit against other players, you will use your words to defeat a series of AI enemies in "roguelike" fashion.

Paperback Adventures is a solo-focused game. It was designed from the ground up as a strategic, highly-replayable solo word game. There are also additional gameplay variants for cooperative play between two players.

This package includes one CORE BOX which includes:

  • Rulebook
  • Enemy Tray with Tokens (designed by Game Trayz™)
  • 12 Enemy Cards
  • 12 Reward Cards
  • 7 Penalty Cards
  • 5 Enemy Vowel Cards
  • 4 Wild and Letter of Your Choice Cards
  • 23 Item Cards
  • 22 McGuffin Cards
  • 12 Boss McGuffin Cards (4 in envelope)
  • 5 Plot Twist Cards
  • 1 Shop Card
  • 1 Archive Card
  • 7 Penalty Card Sleeves

Plus, your choice on ONE of the following Character Boxes:

Damsel (Character Box)

The assassin princess dashes from the shadows! Damsel's sneak attacks surprise enemies, while toxic poisons can take down even the largest foes. With a unique set of items and letter cards, Damsel is the most aggressive protagonist in Paperback Adventures.

Ex Machina (Character Box)

The metal hero from the future is here! Ex Machina's Metal Shell can take the hits, and once powered up, he unleashes his Laser Eyes! With a unique set of items and letter cards, Ex Machina is the toughest protagonist in Paperback Adventures.

Plothook (Character Box)

The undead captain rises from the depths! Plothook's Briny Cutlass can cut through defenses, and his loyal Crew cards can return from the grave. With a unique set of items and letter cards, Plothook uses long words to sink enemies in Paperback Adventures.
