The Way You Make Me Feel is a short multiplayer rpg about picking people up at a club.

It's 2 pages, with solid layout and even a sort of vague map, which helps a lot with placing everyone in the narrative.

WYMMF doesn't have hard mechanics---anyone can step into a soft-GM role, and success/failure is decided by group consensus. Tarot cards are used, but they're more prompts than a resolution mechanism. They simply shape your initial perceptions of the game's two eligible NPC bachelors.

Overall, WYMMF is a very open-ended and (possibly) casual romance ttrpg. I think it benefits from doing a bit of world-building up front (a high-fantasy-modern-world-mashup setting would be really delightful), but as long as your group is comfortable with a game about clubbing, this seems like a solid oneshot.


Minor Issues:

-This was impossible to find via the itch search function. Neither the title nor madpierrot produced any results. Not sure why. I wanted to mention this in hopes that it helps the game stop being buried.

what's the recommended player count?

(+1)

Three players. A GM is optional.

is there a guide as to what the cards players draw mean or anything?

or do we have to know how tarot works

I'm not sure if I mention it in the pdf text itself but there's a few different resources you can use.

  • Here's an overview of general Rider-Waite decks: https://www.tarot.com/tarot/decks/rider
  • Most apps will let you do three card draws and also have meanings with them. I suggest the Golden Thread app, as it also has a lookup. https://goldenthreadtarot.com/
  • Your deck probably came with a booklet (or maybe a pdf) that has meanings more specific to its designs and inspirations. That one is probably your best bet.

I don't have a specific guide or a deck specifically for this game though. Hope that helps!

It does, thank you
