Outliers is a single-player journaling game in which you play a research assistant trying to do their job in an absurd environment. Recruit participants, collect data, and perform miscellaneous tasks around the lab before  the study runs out of funds. Keeping your job shouldn’t be hard when your participants are clones, time travelers, and cryptids . . . right?

The following materials are needed to play Outliers: 

  • A notebook, or another way to journal 
  • A standard deck of playing cards 
  • A six-sided die (d6) 
  • 10 tokens 
  • A tumbling block tower (optional but recommended)
