Blackout involves creating blackout poetry, either individually or with a second player.

Players throw dice to guide their censorship and then create poems from the words left over.

Blackout is a casual game that involves suggestions rather than strict rules. Players may share their poems with each other or keep them to themselves.

You will need:

  1. Media to transform into poetry such as newspaper articles, book pages, junk mail, etc.
  2. A 6 sided die
  3. A pen/marker to censor.

The suggestions table was a great jumping-off point! Ironically, I've always had blank-page syndrome when it comes to blackout poetry but you've made it much more approachable.

I used the instructions themselves and ended up channeling Oscar Wild. With love:


This is fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing, glad you enjoyed!
