Words as Game-Changers: Unveiling Thorny Games' Linguistic Marvels

For the last few years, Thorny Games has masterfully crafted tabletop RPGs and LARPs that explore the power and playfulness of language. But their creations go beyond mere gameplay; they are a testament to the boundless potential that lies within language itself. With each game, Thorny Games offers us a remarkable opportunity to perceive the world anew through the mesmerizing lens of communication. Thorny Games, based in Washington, is Kathryn Hymes and Hakan Seyalıoğlu, who, with mixed backgrounds in design, maths and linguistics, are Gen Con veterans and multiple Game of the Year award winners. We have 50% of the team with us today, so plug those headphones in and get ready to be transported by the magic of Kathryn Hymes and the captivating world of Thorny Games!
