I've run this game over a dozen times, as a pack of wolves trying to join a pack; refugees from an asteroid impact; bikers joining a ballet school; kids seeking to enter a magic school; magical familiars. Even aliens applying to join the postal service just prior to playing Space Post (by Jason Morningstar).

The game allows for a variety of tones from gonzo silly to super serious. It has a variety of modes so the group can work competitively (with only one, or maybe everyone BUT one person getting into the community) or collaboratively, where it's all or none. It features a very simple voting mechanic at games end, followed by epilogues to complete the game play with a satisfying end narrative. I've played in all these fashions, and have thoroughly enjoyed every single games, with a few of them being some of my favorite games of the last year.

I highly recommend this game for players of all experience levels, from hardcore story gamer, to complete newbie. 

I have had the opportunity to play several times, and now I'm so excited to be able to share it with more folks.  Let's see how many crazy groups of aliens, bikers, ballerinas and more we can have fun playing!

Yassss, do it!

I love “The Newly Arrived”! The innovation of the dual roles and open-ended questioning lead organically to some truly surprising (and even moving) outcomes. Plus, it’s so easy to play that I can bring it to a table with the newest of newbies.”

Thanks, man! We look forward to playing again witcha.
