Broken Ruler Games is a tabletop game development studio and personal imprint of Todd Crapper (“The Warden”), an award-winning tabletop game/production designer and writer with over 20 years experience in the field. Should that matter to you? Sure, it would be nice, but I’d rather let my work stand for itself.
BRG is all about one thing: breaking all the rules. So much so that it’s our tagline. That means building new games and systems from the ground up, venturing into new territories and finding new methods of playing and running exciting games between friends and strangers alike. It started in 2011 when BRG was formed and work began on our first game, Killshot, which went on to win a Judges Spotlight Award from the ENnies in 2013… and that’s just our first foray into the field. Since then, BRG has gone on to publish over a dozen unique titles from high-action fantasy mash-ups to grim and realistic larps. If you haven’t heard of them, we’ve packed as much detail as possible into this site to tell you all about it.
Is there more to tell you about Broken Ruler Games? I could probably go on for a while, but that’s why we built this site – for you to poke around and see for yourself. If you have any questions, post them in the comments for each post and page and I’ll personally answer them as soon as I can. Until then, it’s time to build your next game.

(P.S. Every page you’ll find on this site is written by me and is unedited. Ok, maybe some of the pages have been edited, but those are the actual content pages for products such as Killshot. The majority of the posts made to this site should be viewed as blog posts – just read and enjoy, put the red pen away. See? We’re breaking the rules already.)
