Viva la QueerBar is a slice-of-life story game about a queer bar (or queer café) and the team who runs it. It’s a game about the pleasures and struggles of being part of a queer community.
Whether as a fantasy medieval tavern, a cyberpunk underground club, a real-world gay bar in a historical setting, an intergalactic queer bar on a spaceship, or anything else you can think of – the QueerBar lives wherever you want it to.
Built on the Descended from the Queen system, this GM-less storytelling RPG explores the lives of a group of coworkers who run a queer business. You don’t need to be queer, just down to play a queer character. And it doesn’t need to be a bar – it doesn’t even need to exist in our modern world! Zero-prep with safety tools included, Viva la Queer Bar launches easily with a deck of playing cards and your imaginations. Game includes 52 prompts as well as info on the history of queer bars and 23 portraits of famous real-world bars and cafes. Illustrations are all inspired by historical flyers for queer spaces.
Designed for 2-4 hour one-shots. Love the bar you created? Let it live on! Use it as a setting in the game of your choice.
