Single Unique Power


In Single Unique Power, roll dice and pull words from a pot to create an exciting world and its superpowered inhabitants!

Single Unique Power is a cast-building, setting-creation game inspired by the “one person, one power” trope popular in superhero media, manga, and anime. Examples include mutations in X-Men, quirks in My Hero Academia, devil fruit powers in One Piece, and nen abilities in Hunter × Hunter. In each of these examples, select characters all have unique, personalized powers.

At the end of this game, you’ll have a colorful cast of characters as well as bits and pieces of their backstories. These characters can be enjoyed on their own as you collectively imagine their lives and powers, or you can carry them into future RPGs and stories.

To play Single Unique Power, you’ll need
  • Two or more players
  • Three six-sided dice
  • Writing utensils
  • A stack of notecards (3x5” recommended)
  • A pot for collecting and mixing cards, such as a hat or a bowl

Single Unique Power is printed as a 30-page, 4.5x5.5", pocket-sized paperback, and modifications are included for online play. A PDF-only copy of the game can be bought at a discount on itch.io.

For a complimentary PDF, forward proof of physical purchase.
