Cut Up Solo - Through The Looking Glass
A downloadable game
CUT UP SOLO
Through The Looking Glass & Alice In Wonderland
This book takes the next from the classic Lewis Carrol novels and cuts it into snippets of 3-5 words. There are two d1000 tables included in the PDF and nearly 14,000 snippets in the included spreadsheets. The spreadsheets (xlsx and ods formats) can be downloaded using a link in the book. These are set up to randomly grab 20 snippets at a time, or you can use the built-in Find All function to use the spreadsheet as a concordance.
These cut ups suit a game set in a Victoriana genre or something more 'out there' such as Troika.
Cut Up Solo is a technique that uses random snippets of text that you pick and fit together, creating what the GM says to you. You can then respond to that, and then the cycle repeats. As all the snippets in this set all come from the book, it gives a sense of continuity.
Cut up play is very different from more traditional oracle-driven solo play. If you struggle with how to interpret word pairs or prompts, cut up could be for you.
The novel contains over 57,000 words of text, chopped into snippets of 4 or 5 words. You get over 13,919 snippets to mix and match in your solo games. The PDF contains two d1000 tables of snippets, and the spreadsheets contain the full set of snippets.
