Golden Mart is a single-player tabletop role-playing game set in a neighborhood convenience store. The Rats out back are a power, the dog out front is an oracle, and you just need to get through your shift. 

VERMINUM HONORATE

A magical catastrophe a few blocks away from the convenience store where you work threatens the city. Society is on edge. How will you uphold the Golden Standard of Excellent Customer Service during this time?

Appropriate for ages 10 and up.


We designed the game to be played with a penny and a bag of M&Ms, but we have included instructions for playing with a D6 or Chex Mix. Alternatively, you may use any other snack-type food that comes in variations of 6. Additionally, you might need a pen or pencil to take notes and fill out the incident report!

Designed by Michael DeAnda and Carly Kocurek.

RENOVATION

Our Kickstarter to renovate and expand Golden Mart was a huge success!

Renovation Contents

Sensitivity Reading

Importantly, we wanted to have our Employee Handbook reviewed by sensitivity readers to address any problematic content. We removed many references to police in the original, we rearranged the M&M colors on the tables, and we took the time to address language deployed throughout the manual.

Map

We hired Ryan Lynch at Outrider Designs to redo the store map!
