Rainbow World is a short collaborative world building game. With it, a few friends can generate a unique world, filled with wonder and conflict, in a half hour. It can handle original races and almost any setting or genre you can dream up!

It employs an economy of earning and eating Skittles candies as the history of your fictional world is unveiled. As the game progresses, the world shifts and changes, reflected by index cards piling up. The game ends when everyone agrees that a satisfying snapshot of an imaginary world has developed.

Rainbow World was first written for the 2016 200 Word RPG Challenge and can still be found on the challenge's website. This new version is mechanically identical to the challenge entry but features expanded text, play examples, and art to better explain the game.

Included is Rainbow World: The Peanut Butter Planet, a one page supplement for Rainbow World. Peanut Butter Planet replaces the typical  Skittles with Reese's Pieces or, with minor tweaking, cherry tomatoes or mini bell peppers.
