Games from the Tonerlands is a collection of 13 small board games that can be printed out and played. Each one consists of one sheet of paper containing the rules and board, and each can be played with simple items lying around the house, and a couple six-sided die.

They are easy to learn, fast to play, easily adaptable into drinking games, and fold up into dandy little game nuggets as seen below.

This came about one afternoon a few years ago when I was musing about a childhood game I used to play with a couple friends: we’d make “video games” by drawing mazes and monsters on sheets of paper, folding them up into little “cartridges”, drawing a label on them, and then trading them around. It was the next best thing to learning how to play the game our Pokemon cards were for. I try not to be a curmudgeon, but this is what we had to put up with before Roblox, kids.
