Verhext Nochmal!

Players play cat familiars to different witches within a coven. The thing about witches is things can get pretty messy pretty quickly. Luckily you’re no ordinary cats and now it’s up to you and your fellow felines to save the day! A GM-lite game of whacky magic misadventures and the zany witches you live with. 

This game was born out of the love I hold for the stories I grew up with as a child that provided my wild imagination with immeasurable comfort that I still draw on. This game is meant to be a fun, pretty wholesome experience with friends/family and to inspire some warm, funny stories about these cats, their witches and their adventures- but as a producer and streamer myself I am endlessly supportive of you making these stories your own. The game is designed to be able to be easily adapted to your individual tables.

PLEASE NOTE The examples of witchcraft listed are open practices. They aren’t mutually exclusive or culturally specific, but they represent what your witch specializes in. You can use your own cultural practices of course, but please be respectful of closed practices. For ex. if it’s not in your culture to practice hoodoo and you play it, it’s on you what you get for it and you will get Something and it won’t be Good. 

I do hope to be able to have the game doc illustrated so that might be updated in the future but that's likely more at the end of 2022! Enjoy!


You Need:

  • 2-3 players (this is my personal sweetspot amount, you can legit play with as many people as you can handle. Go ham. Make two covens if you want!) 
  • 1 GM who is more facilitator than GM
  • 1d6

Make sure you do a pre-game check in with your players to establish boundaries and comfort levels. It’s a very open-world game so you need to make sure everyone is always comfortable and having fun before exploring it! Here is a handy dandy toolkit to use to keep everyone safe and happy! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/114jRmhzBpdqkAlhmveis0nmW73qkAZCj

UPDATE: Mobile Layout now available! Thank you, Jess Meier!

This game adheres to the Olivia Hill Rule: If you're a fascist, you're not welcome to play this game. It's against the rules.

2nd UPDATE; the digital layout is now a PDF so everyone should be able to open it!

3rd UPDATE: As a TTRPG Streamer and Producer it only made sense to create some streaming kits for this game! So now for 3-5 players plus 1 GM there's twitch stream overlays for a Basic theme, Forest theme and Cozy/home theme!

ALSO there is now a Comic Sans Dyslexia friends plain text pdf!


4th Update! REDESIGNED PDF Game book! The PDF is now an adorably redesigned book of 36 pages with some updates to mechanics in character creation.


There is now an ACTUAL PLAY of the game, out now! https://open.spotify.com/episode/6Ly5r9pP4ZHYwrLKrmiDox?si=d701e72f5f9b43f2

I love this game! It's so easy to play and the pre-gens are a definite highlight. There is just the right amount of flavour for the cats and witch subtypes to help make your character unique. If you like cute games with high improv and low prep, this one is purrfect!
