Red Markets: Papers, Please at Patrecon 2018

A group of Takers have been hired to secure printers and laminating machines from a DMV in an overrun mall. Along the way, they will have to fight casualties, a toll booth, and other Takers. I ran this game for a group of mostly new players at Patrecon 2018. Be sure to check out the following creators:

    I do not understand how you accomplished this in 1 hour 22 minutes!? Presumably, you cut out the rules/setting explanation. Still… I guess I’ll know in 2 and a half hours if cleaning the house/walking the dog/etc take that long.

    OK, so now I see how you managed to complete this in such a short time. Your players were very nice about talking and negotiating with people. Mine just wanted to shoot everyone. And we did negotiations.

    They were so nice! In a campaign I could see them getting completely chewed up by the loss. “Can’t we all get along?” “No.”

  4. one thing that always gets me about new players in a game, is that they always try to leverage more cash out of the client when they find out about the Complication.

    Taker : “Well, we’ll never take one of your jobs again!”
    Client: *cheerfully* “Oh yes you will, you need the money.”
