It is!


It's similar to Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity. Each player has a 
hand full of fictional characters. Each turn, it's one player's turn to be 
judge; they put down a character, and each other player secretly chooses a 
character they think should be shipped with the judge's character. The judge 
selects which one makes the best pairing. It's tons of fun!

I mean, how do you think they get to the grocery store?

...other than using their nigh-infinite power to transcend time and space, of 
course. And of course they don't actually need to *eat* as such...

Honestly, a lot of your stuff has a sort of slice-of-life-ish sense of the 
details of the everyday in whatever weird bit of the multiverse you're exploring.
