Little Woman

Front page for Little Woman

(AKA: Lille De)

Participants: 1-4 players


DesignerMalik Hyltoft


You take on the roles of young women setting out on their adult lives as the recession hits Denmark in the 30s. You cooperate and try to take as much charge of your lives as society allows through play and manipulation of cards on your personal character boards.

This is a game based on the life stories of my grandmothers and of contemporary women. The cards of the game will make you face the challenges and possibilities of young Danish women of the 30s.

Little Woman is a resource management game with card play. But it is first and foremost a story-telling game. Little Woman will appeal to the player, who likes to create stories through their game and maybe even draw from their own family history to expand the story.

Little Woman draws inspiration from This War of Mine and Fog of Love. It sets off in Fog of Love’s positive outlook on life and the belief that you cocreate your own life story and destiny, and it aims for the close personal story and intensity of This War of Mine.

I spiller unge kvinder, der går løs på livet netop som 30’ernes krise rammer Danmark. I samarbejder og styrer så meget af jeres liv som omgivelserne tillader gennem spil og manipulation af kort på jeres personlige character board.

Spillet er lavet ud fra mine bedstemødre og samtidige kvinders livshistorier. Kortene i spillet konfronterer dig med de muligheder og bestemt også begrænsninger, der kendetegnede unge kvinders liv i 30’erne.

Lille De er et resource management spil, drevet af kort. Men det er især et fortællingsskabende spil. Lille De vil appellere til spillere, der holder af at skabe historier gennem deres spil og måske endda dyppe ned i deres egen families erfaring for at udvide fortællingen.

Lille De er inspireret af This War of Mine og Fog of Love – det tager udgangspunkt i Fog of Loves positive livssyn og troen på, at man er medskaber af sin historie og tilstræber This War of Mine’s nære personlige historie og intensitet.
