And that's a summary of how to play!
If I buy the game, what do I get?
You get a physical copy of The Party RPG book, which has 100 A4 pages of high quality content. You also get access to digital content, including extra character sheets, a digital version of the rule book, a Games Master Reference Sheet, and access to our digital dice. If you prefer playing with physical dice, you can use any 3 six-sided dice.
I've never played a role-playing game before and they sound complex. Is it hard to play?
No! You'll be surprised at how quickly players get into the adventure. Everyone will soon have all sorts of crazy ideas, often generating hilarious and unexpected events. Nothing can match the sense of adventure a tabletop role-playing game gives you.
Simplicity is at the core of our design philosophy. It's why we're rated 8/10 by the UK's biggest boardgame retailer, Zatu, and were recommended in Issue 52 of Tabletop Gaming Magazine. In a subsequent video, Charlie from Tabletop Gaming Magazine also described the game as 'the easiest EVER to Games Master.' Score!
Can it be played remotely?
Yes! It's super easy to play via Skype, Teams, or Zoom. In fact, it's so easy we've made a 'watch it played' video, which you can watch here.
What type of character do I have to be?
There's no limit on the type of character you can be. We've had everything from stereotypical elven archers to medieval accountants and everything inbetween.
Is it suitable for young children?
There are mature themes so parental discretion is advised. Due to the presence of subtle sexual references and violence, we recommend it is suitable for teenagers and above. If you decide to play with young children, we suggest an adult takes on the role of Games Master. Seb from Zatu did this and gave the game an 8/10 rating, so it's possible to make it child friendly and still have an awesome time!
How easy is it to swap Games Masters at each location?
Very easy. Swapping Games Masters adds some chaos and inconsistency that actually makes the game a little bit more fun, so if you're experienced at RPGs it may help freshen up your game night!
Can I reuse my characters in future quests?
Yes, you can. You can even play through the quest again!
How long does the game last?
The whole quest lasts about 12-15 hours, but don't worry, you don't have to play it all in one. The game is divided into 6 main quests, each taking about 2 hours to complete.
