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.
