ZIMO’s Getting Up
ZIMO's getting up brings the world of graffiti and street art to your tabletop in a condensed but fully flavoursome way.
The can rattles.
The outline of the letters Z I M O take shape, covering the whole car of what used to be a white and malachite green 377 Electrostar carriage.
Purple and red blend to fill in the letters
Next up is the character planned for the next carriage, but you cannot find where you put the sketch
You curse out loud
Did you hear a noise?
Your sweat turns cold
What is ZIMO’s Getting Up?
ZIMO’s Getting Up is a 20 page, tabletop role playing game A5 zine by Fraud for 1 player.
All you need to play is the zine, a pair of ten-sided dice (or an app that provides the same), and some writing and sketching supplies of your choosing.
This game uses a standalone system designed to get out of the way, the core mechanic of the game fits on 1/2 page.
It is intended to be played solo, but could easily be played one-on-one with a single player and a game host.
Every surface is a potential location to get up, some more dangerous and inaccessible than others. The player's goal is to find fulfilment by getting a reputation and a place they belong.
Each time a player is doing graffiti, they potentially risk wasting their supplies, time, or money, or more likely risk their physical health and mental health, or worse by becoming a target of the law.
The consequences for failure can be very high: beginner writers might be going home with no reputation to speak of, or even get nicked in the process of getting one.
Getting supplies and hitting the right spot in ZIMO’s Getting Up is critical to a writer’s success. Alternatively, players can improve their odds by checking on their past work and sketching their in game plans in their real world blackbook.
It’s Fraud’s first zine and RPG.
