So here we are. After months of writing and private playtesting, we’re ready to unveil our new project to the world (in demo form): Ross Rifles! Ross Rifles is a tabletop RPG where players inhabit the lives of soldiers from the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) stationed on the Western Front during World War One. Sent overseas to fight for crown and country, characters will make personal sacrifices in the name of Canada, and experience the horrors of industrialized war. Using the Powered by the Apocalypse system, the game will not only teach players about Canada’s contribution to WWI but also highlight the horrors of a new era of warfare, form bonds with their fellow soldiers, and discover a developing Canadian national identity.
On November 28th, we’ll be running two public demos of the latest build of the game at 401 Games Toronto! Entry is free, but 401 Games recommends RSVPs as space is limited in the Board Games Lounge. The event starts at 6pm, and the last round of games will start at 9:00-9:30pm. We’ll be running two games simultaneously.
Hope to see you there!
