in order to fold the game into a zine, print the pages double-sided, and fold each in half sharply down the middle. remove the sheet with the cover. stack each of the folded pages in their clear order (not stacking them into each other, but on top of). staple-bind these pages together once or twice. wrap the cover around the stapled pages and secure it with staples in two more spots. boom. zine.
cover image and internal illustrations for the zine format are created with public domain art. fonts used are Quattrocento (body text) and Supermercado (title & headings).
