THEY BECAME FLESH is a game about fallen angels, just after the fall. It is a game with two Game Masters, who control God and Humanity while players take on the roles of the Fallen— angels who loved humankind best and were punished by God for defending Adam and Eve. The Fallen are pushed and manipulated by God and Humanity, and every action leads them to one of three options: forsaking humanity and the Fallen to become Angels, forsaking God to become human, or forsaking both in the name of brotherhood.
This game plays best with 3-6 people, including God and Humanity. The prototype was a runner up in the 2010 Ronnies, and people had great things to say about it:
“The virtues of the design are pure and forceful, and so coherent in terms of Creative Agenda, with a deft touch.”
“My first thought when reading your design doc was: “This is the game that I wanted Demon: The Fallen to be.” Every bit of fantasy in this game underscores real personal and social concerns about religion and responsibility without ever offering easy escape routes.”

Blowback is a game where you play spies blacklisted after a job goes awry, and the people who care about them. You can play this game with 3-5 people, and while playing it as a single game session is fun, it’s designed for long term play. It’s heavily inspired by the American television show Burn Notice and movies like the Bourne trilogy. As much as Blowback is about pyrotechnics and car chases, it’s a fish-out-of-water premise: spies stranded without their agency, normal people swept up in intrigue. And, like all multiplayer games, it’s about relationships— how much can you ask of someone, how much can you disappoint them before they turn their back on you?

“The rules are like this, see: you kids have thirty minutes, that’s it. At the end of that time, two of you had better be left standing, and you’d better have found the cash. If more than two of you are alive, everybody dies. If just one person is alive, that person dies. If two people make it but haven’t found the bag, well, they die too. There should be some weapons around the house. Oh, don’t try to escape, or you’ll die. See you in twenty-nine minutes.”
7-page PDF, 8.5” x 11”, perfect for printing. Murderland is a fun game which uses the game board and materials from the classic board game CLUE, and plays in less than 45 minutes. Murder your friends and find the cash before the Syndicate slaughters you all.
