Alexa Kirchner’s The Court of Ferns is a hilarious bureaucratic nightmare. It plays with frustration in a truly absurdist way and, as is fitting with the bureaucratic theme, uses signage as an in-game means to introduce additional players into the mix. We felt that this game was wonderfully silly and approachable for players who might be wandering by wondering what on earth they are witnessing.

In the Court of Ferns, you play participants in a dysfunctional court in which the judge is a fern. Your job might be to shout at other lawyers, give people paperwork, move furniture, or try to get your problem solved. The Court of Ferns rules, which are fairly brief (4 pages long,) are at http://www.goldencobra.org/pdf/2019/The%20Court%20of%20Ferns%20Rules.pdf. We encourage you to read them before deciding whether you want to sign up. Drop-in players are welcome.
