Basically Maze Rats with a dusting of Tunnel Goons and a large spoonful of Basic Dungeons, but stripped back to fit on a double-sided A5 sheet, and sped up for one-shots, picnics, and parties. These rules work great with both kids and adults.

Little Bones is played with 2d6. If you would like to play this game with, say, a single giant foam d12 instead then try Big Bone.  

Includes pre-rolled characters, a spell generator, stat suggestions for creatures and NPCs, and an adventure builder.

There's also a PDF of four A6 character sheets.

HTML version is available here.

Thanks to Suikyun Studio there is now a Brazilian Portuguese translation of Little Bones! Amazing!

NEW: Thanks to grk, we also have a German translation! Wonderful!

Also new: Wanna buy a shirt?

Really nice presentation. Super clean. You pack a lot of flavor into it too! My only complaint - while I like the little doo-dad filler graphics I want them to be bones. :)

Little ones.

Oh, and included the markdown file ... chef's kiss.

Thanks Ray! The index card format looks great too.
