Countdown to The Deal’s Kickstarter

The button has been clicked and The Deal‘s Kickstarter page is currently under review. It won’t be long now until our third Kickstarter campaign is under way. Oh yeah, in case we never mentioned it before… we’re doing a Kickstarter for a larp!

The Deal is a “poker larp” from Broken Ruler Games. Here, you can see a preview of the cover and some of the cards.

The Deal is a live-action roleplaying game of poker where you play one of four characters caught up in a web of blackmail, deception, and confrontation during a high-stakes game of poker. Playtested at BreakoutCon in Toronto this past year, this Kickstarter will have a small goal of $600 CDN within 21 days and you can back this game for as little as $1 with the biggest stretch goal just a mere $20 to unlock The Loaded Deck, a complete deck of standard playing cards in the same design as the game’s cards that creates a more advanced level of play. (The Loaded Deck will be exclusive to the Kickstarter, btw!) When published, it will be sold through DriveThruCards and all cards are designed to work with existing poker decks to create a seamless and immersive experience. In other words… it’s really fucking fun. (Oh yes, there’s lots of content warnings and this game is intended for mature players.)

You can check out a preview of The Deal on Kickstarter before it officially launches or learn more about the game in our Fragments line. And remember to talk about this game with #PokerLarpIsAThing

UPDATE: The date has been set! The Deal will launch on Tuesday, May 28th and run for 21 days.

The Crappiest Sale is on DriveThruRPG Riiiiiight… NOW!!

Go, go go! From today (Thomas Crapper Day) until February 3rd, all Broken Ruler Games’ products listed on DriveThruRPG and their affiliate sites are 50% off for all PDFs and 25% off for a print copies. It’s the most comprehensive and heavily discounted sale we’ve ever done and just like so many other big sales based on holidays, it has absolute nothing to do with its namesake date.

Click here (not on Thomas Crapper’s face) to head on over to DriveThruRPG.

Well, maybe there is a connection to…. nah, that’s a stretch. What are the odds BRG’s owner & publisher is related? There’s gotta be a lot of Crappers in the UK. That’s like their version of Smith, right?

We’d also love it if everyone reading this shared it on their own preferred social media channels and feel free to get creative with it. Play up on the family name with tweets like, “Don’t flush your money away!” Or “Broken Ruler Games has wiped their prices down to 50%.”

Just click here to visit our DriveThruRPG page before February 3rd.

(Please note DriveThruRPG’s sites will be down on Monday, January 28th for site wide maintenance so we’re making what’s called a “soft launch” for this sale today. Once the site is back up and running again on Tuesday, we’ll be making a bigger push.)

Coming Soon: The Crappiest Sale of the Year

Hello, Broken Ones, and welcome to 2019. It’s been quiet here on the website. A little too quiet. After dealing with some family matters in the last couple months of 2018, BRG is back in the swing of things with our first big event of the new year.

We’re calling it the Crappiest Sale of the Year.

UPDATE: Check out this post from Accessible Games on the Sale… plus these very kind words on our work creating games for everyone to enjoy.

http://www.accessiblegames.biz/friends-sale/

It just so happens that Sunday, January 27th is Thomas Crapper Day and we’re just drawn to doing something to mark this day. Not sure why. There’s just something about this infamous and yet-unknown engineering hero that speaks to us. From January 27th to February 3rd, we’re going to have some huge discounts on all PDFs and PODs (print-on-demand) products on DriveThruRPG, RPGNow, and all other OneBookShelf affiliate sites.

But we also need to get the word out and that’s where we could use your help. We’ll be doing what we can to get the word out and any shares, retweets, likes and more will help get the message out there. Plus we have this swanky graphic to go with it, so feel free to download and share to your hearts content.

What a handsome, familiar looking fellow.

You can find all of our games listed here on DriveThruRPG.

The Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Bundle on DriveThruRPG

Screen Shot 2017-10-04 at 7.06.14 AMIn times of dire crisis, everyone needs to do their part to help out in whatever way they can. That’s why we answered the call when Hydra Cooperative activated the bat-signal for fellow publishers to fill their Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Bundle (available now on DriveThruRPG and RPGNow). For $25 USD, you’ll receive over $500 worth of PDFs from publishers such as Kobold Press (Deep Magic), Arc Dream Publishing (Delta Green), Fat Goblin Games (The Gamemaster’s Worldbuilding Journal), and so many more. Plus we’ve included ScreenPlay in the mix. Even if you’ve purchased ScreenPlay or a sampling of these products, there’s a lot to gain from this bundle with the added bonus of doing a little something to help out the people of Puerto Rico.
