OverviewOverview

This is a game for people who like to organise things. You are in charge of a warehouse and must manage 100s of items of stock. These identical square boxes are labelled with rudimentary icons. On your own or with another player, you must decipher what each icon depicts and invent ways to categorise them. Customers then appear wanting specific combinations of products and you have limited time to find and deliver them.

You can play on your own or with another person. Either way, what starts as a game about organising things soon turns into a challenge of categorisation. You need to decide, for example, whether the gloves go with the winter things like snowflakes and sledges, or with the clothing items.

The simplicity slowly gives way to more and more items to organise and you are forced to make compromises in your groupings. With another person you have to talk to each other to decide which items go where, and agree on your joint approach so you can find things when you need them.

Duration: This game will take between 9 hours and 11 hours to complete. It's not a game you fail at and are forced to start again in this game, so some players will take longer to complete it depending on their efficiency of storing and finding stock.
 
Players: You can play with 2 players in the same room, but you can’t play it online. On PC and Console, you can play together to organise your stock co-operatively. This leads to some great conversations between players about how to categorise each item. However, on iOS Wilmot's Warehouse is a single player game.

Although there is an element of pressure in delivering the items to customers. There is no penalty for failure and the stock take levels give you time to get organised.
