Surrounding Strangeness is a Spindlewheel game for one or more players. Explore the origin, the mystery, and the story of a cryptid. Where is it seen, what does it want, why is it known? Is there evidence of its existence? What is the truth?

Finding out takes around 10 - 30 minutes and a Spindlewheel deck, which you can print-and-play for free here.

This game was made for the Cryptid Jam.

Thanks to Sasha Reneau for creating Spindlewheel.

firstly, i'd like to thank you for introducing me to spindlewheel! it seems like a super super cool system that i'd like to try out sometime. secondly- the idea of a group of people building a cryptid, their own story, seems soooo cool i love it so so much! especially as maybe even a world-building resource!

 thank you for this- i'll definitely try it for myself sometime very soon.
