    All-in-One 20 Years Create-a-Family

    I haven’t seen a game like this for a while, so I thought I’d try making one! There will be a lot of dice rolling, and this is definitely not a quick game, so get ready!

    You will use a 20-sided dice for every roll.

    DICE: http://www.roll-dice-online.com/

    First, the basics:
    Choose first and last names from the lists below:

    LAST NAMES: http://nameberry.com/list/358/Surname-Baby-Names?all=1
    You: http://nameberry.com/list/383/Early-...an-Names?all=1 http://nameberry.com/list/369/Disney...by-Names?all=1
    Your Partner: http://nameberry.com/list/232/Musician-Baby-Names?all=1 http://nameberry.com/list/351/Names-...n-Babies?all=1

    Roll the dice for Ages:
    1-5: 22
    6-10: 23
    11-15: 24
    16-20: 25

    Roll for Career Fields; you may choose any career within the field:
    1/2: Law/Politics (ex. Lawyer, Politician, Political Advisor, Judge)
    3/4: Military/Law Enforcement (ex. Air Force, Marines, FBI Agent, Police Officer)
    5/6: Academia (ex. Researcher, Teacher, College Professor, Principal)
    7/8: Science/Math/Technology (ex. Doctor, Nurse, Scientist, Accountant, Software Designer, Engineer)

    11/12: Business (ex. Business Owner, Salesperson, Executive)
    13/14: Physical Labor/Trade School (Construction, Athlete, Mechanic, Electrician, Hairstylist, Real Estate)
    15/16: Travel Services/Communications (ex. Pilot, Truck Driver, Travel Agent, Journalist, Advertising)
    17-20: Stay at Home or Roll Again

    Roll for Pets you have at time of marriage/commitment. First roll for number of pets and then roll once for each type. Choose your own names and breeds:
    1-5: 1 pet
    6-10: 2 pets
    11-15: 3 pets
    16-20: 5 pets

    1-2: Bird
    3-4: Reptile/Amphibian (Turtle, Tortoise, Lizard, Snake, etc.)
    5-6: Rodent (Hamster, Gerbil, Guinea Pig, Rat, Mouse, etc.)
    7-13: Cat
    14: Other
    15-20: Dog

    You choose what city you live in, but for your starter home:
    1-4: 2-Bedroom Apartment
    5-8: 4-Bedroom House
    9-12: 3-Bedroom Townhouse
    13-16: 3-Bedroom House
    17-20: 2-Bedroom Condo

    Congratulations! You and your partner have either just gotten married or decided that marriage isn’t necessary, but you are committed to one another enough to want a child! If you decide that you are not married, you may marry at any point during the game. Tell us about yourselves. Where did you meet? If you did get married, feel free to talk about the proposal, the wedding, and where you honeymooned! Give as much or as little detail as you like.

    The game lasts over the course of 20 years. For each year, you will roll twice, once for a life event and once for the chance to have a child.

    Life Events: Follow the instructions for each life event.

    Children: Roll once to see if you have a child/how many, roll a second time for each gender. Even numbers are girls; odd numbers are boys. Roll for each child; for example, if you get twins, roll once for the gender of each twin. Name guides for children may be found at the end; the first link is the first name and the second link is for the middle name. Every list provided should have both boy and girl names, but if one doesn’t, feel free to choose any name you like. While there are three name lists for every year, this is to account for the possibility of triplets in each year. If only one child is born, use the links for Baby 1. You may choose to have a biological child or adopt for every birth; it is completely up to you how your children become part of your family. For adopted children, you may decide if they are from a foreign country, their age, ethnicity, etc., but you must still use the naming guide.

    A note about pets: Not everyone is an animal person. I understand that. Well, not really, but I understand that you may not want any critters in your life. If this is the case, feel free to skip the pet section above and reroll for all pet life events.

    Children:

    1. Single Birth
    2. Single Birth
    3. No Birth
    4. No Birth

    Life Events:

    1. You have inherited the child/ren of a family member or close friend. How did this happen? Did they pass away, did your mother send your little sister to live with you, were they simply unable to care for their children? Roll to see how many children they had, and again to determine gender (Even=Girl, Odd=Boy). You may decide names and ages.
    1-8: 1 child
    9-15: 2 children
    16-20: 3 children

    2. Get a new degree! You may receive a medical, law, bachelors, trade school, or any other degree you can think of, and may take this opportunity to change careers, but you must re-roll for your new career field if you choose to change careers. The degree/career change can be either for you or your partner.

    3. Move! You may choose to move to a new city of your choice, or simply move houses. Tell us about your new home, though!

    4. Promotion! You or your partner receives a promotion at work!

    5. New Pet! Roll to see what you’ve added to your family! Choose name and specific breed/animal type!
    1-2: Bird
    3-4: Reptile/Amphibian (Turtle, Tortoise, Lizard, Snake, etc.)
    5-6: Rodent (Hamster, Gerbil, Guinea Pig, Rat, Mouse, etc.)
    7-13: Cat
    14: Other
    15-20: Dog

    6. Move! You may choose to move to a new city of your choice, or simply move houses. Tell us about your new home, though!

    7. Get a new degree! You may receive a medical, law, bachelors, trade school, or any other degree you can think of, and may take this opportunity to change careers, but you must re-roll for your new career field if you choose to change careers. The degree/career change can be either for you or your partner.

    8. Write a book! If you or your partner is an Author by trade, then it is the other one who writes a bestselling book! What is it about? Fiction, nonfiction?

    9. Roll Again!

    10. New Pet! Roll to see what you’ve added to your family! Choose name and specific breed/animal type!
    1-2: Bird
    3-4: Reptile/Amphibian (Turtle, Tortoise, Lizard, Snake, etc.)
    5-6: Rodent (Hamster, Gerbil, Guinea Pig, Rat, Mouse, etc.)
    7-13: Cat
    14: Other
    15-20: Dog

    11. Move! You may choose to move to a new city of your choice, or simply move houses. Tell us about your new home, though!

    12. Get a new degree! You may receive a medical, law, bachelors, trade school, or any other degree you can think of, and may take this opportunity to change careers, but you must re-roll for your new career field if you choose to change careers. The degree/career change can be either for you or your partner.

    13. Promotion! You or your partner receives a promotion at work!

    14. Widowed. Tragically, your partner has passed away. What happened? While nobody will ever replace them, you know they would want you to move on—when you’re ready. (Note: If you are already single, re-roll for a new life event. Also, if you roll On the Rocks or Widowed in the last 5 rounds, you may choose to re-roll). Roll for the number of years before you marry/commit again:
    1-5: 2 years
    6-10: 3 years
    11-20: 4 years

    Now create your new partner. Go back to the beginning to roll for career and age (add the number of years it has been to the age.
    For instance, if it has been 6 years and you roll 22 as the age, then the future new partner will be 28).
    Last name: http://nameberry.com/list/358/Surname-Baby-Names?all=1
    If this is your second partner: http://nameberry.com/list/413/Number...by-Names?all=1
    http://nameberry.com/list/461/Classic-Baby-Names?all=1
    If this is your third partner: http://nameberry.com/list/327/Latin-Baby-Names?all=1
    http://nameberry.com/list/415/Names-...Meanings?all=1
    If this is your fourth or more partner, you deserve to choose all your own names!

    Even though you’re not partnered up, continue to roll for life events. You may choose to roll for children as well if you want. If you do
    have children, decide how you came to have them; did you simply want a baby, did you and your ex get together for a night, is your
    future new partner the parent?


    15. New Pet! Roll to see what you’ve added to your family! Choose name and specific breed/animal type!
    1-2: Bird
    3-4: Reptile/Amphibian (Turtle, Tortoise, Lizard, Snake, etc.)
    5-6: Rodent (Hamster, Gerbil, Guinea Pig, Rat, Mouse, etc.)
    7-13: Cat
    14: Other

    The Rest of the Instructions...

    Apparently, my instructions were too long. Here are the rest:

    17. On the Rocks! You and your partner are having some serious issues (Note: If you are already single, re-roll for a new life event. Also, if you roll On the Rocks or Widowed in the last 5 rounds, you may choose to re-roll). Roll to see if you stay together:
    1-5: Divorce/Break-Up. Things just aren’t working anymore between you and your partner! There will be no reconciliation, and sadly, it’s
    time for things to end. But you will find new love! Roll for the number of years before you marry/commit again:
    1-5: 1 year
    6-10: 2 years
    11-15: 3 years
    16-20: 4 years

    Now create your new partner. Go back to the beginning to roll for career and age (add the number of years it has been to the
    age. For instance, if it has been 6 years and you roll 22 as the age, then the future new partner will be 28).

    Last name: http://nameberry.com/list/358/Surname-Baby-Names?all=1
    If this is your second partner: http://nameberry.com/list/413/Number...by-Names?all=1
    http://nameberry.com/list/461/Classic-Baby-Names?all=1
    If this is your third partner: http://nameberry.com/list/327/Latin-Baby-Names?all=1
    http://nameberry.com/list/415/Names-...Meanings?all=1
    If this is your fourth or more partner, you deserve to choose all your own names!

    Even though you’re not partnered up, continue to roll for life events. You may choose to roll for children as well if you want.
    If do have children, decide how you came to have them; did you simply want a baby, did you and your ex get together for a
    night, your future new partner the parent?

    6-15: You both agree it’s best to separate. Roll again. Even number, you’re finished; go to Divorce/Break-Up instructions above. Odd
    number, the separation does the trick. See below.

    16-20: After some counseling, you work through your issues and are once again happy and committed to one another. You’re grateful to
    have gotten through this tough time!

    18. Promotion! You or your partner receives a promotion at work!

    19. Start a business! You and/or your partner have decided to open a business! What kind is it? A store, a service business, a hotel, what? Take the opportunity for either you or your partner to leave your current career to run said business, or integrate it into your already-chosen career!

    20. Move! You may choose to move to a new city of your choice, or simply move houses. Tell us about your new home, though!
