Shooting the Moon

Win the heart of the one you love!

Shooting the Moon is a story game in which players are in the midst of a love triangle. The game is built for one-off sessions that can be set in a wide variety of settings, from Bloody Romance on the High Seas to Lawyers in Love.


Here’s how publisher Black and Green Games describes Shooting the Moon:

In Shooting the Moon, you take the roles of three characters brought together, and put through the wringer, by love. Two Suitors compete for the affection of a shared Beloved, who has overwhelming odds of their own to face.

What Fans Love About Shooting the Moon

  • Love is a Battlefield – This is a competitive game in which one player succeeds and the other fails.
  • No Gamemaster – The game can be played with two or three players, none of whom is the gamemaster.
  • It’s All Story – The straightforward mechanics use six-sided dice and focus squarely on the love triangle conflict of the story.


  • “It surprises you, is my point. Despite the fact that we were making it up, I was hanging on every word. That’s insane!”Quentin Smith, Shut Up & Sit Down
  • “Even with a sad ending for your character, you will tell a more compelling love story with Shoot the Moon than you will by making a Charisma check against that elf in the tavern.”Charles Simon, Do Not Taunt Cthulhu
