Inspired by Arnie the Doughnut by Laurie Keller, You are a Muffin is a cozy solo journaling game from Exeunt Press, creator of the ENNIE-nominated Exclusion Zone Botanist.

Unlike most games where you are playing the role of another person, in You are a Muffin you are a pastry in a cozy café or coffee shop. Each customer will place an order, and perhaps take a seat to stay a while. There’s a chance that they might choose you as their snack, but that’s fine. After all, that’s why you were made.

This 22-page solo journaling game includes:

  • Recommended music while playing
  • Character creation rules
  • Six different pastry types to choose (not just muffins)
  • Mechanism for slowly becoming stale
  • Questions and prompts for describing customers
  • Character sheet

Make a cup of coffee or tea, put on some music, grab a pen and enjoy.

"Beautifully creative and strangely evocative. I never knew how peaceful it could be to be a cheesy scone in a cozy cafe. Wonderful layout and easy to pick up rules. Excellent game!" -- brandontlee
