Take 2 is the second season of the Nerd Q podcast with Corey Cliett and Lyle “Dozer” Jorgenson. In this episode, they share their excitement over Galactic Scoundrels, the latest game to get funded by the Little Rock Games.
About the game
Galactic Scoundrels is a game made by and for people who love science fiction stories from the morally questionable end of the galaxy. From Firefly to Cowboy Bebop to Star Wars to Rick and Morty, the game has a trope for just about every scoundrel story out there, but it tilts toward the space western genre more than most.
You have one goal in the game: to become the richest swindler in the galaxy, while telling some beautiful stories along the way. You’ll attempt this by agreeing to some not-very-nice jobs. Whether it’s an assassination, a kidnapping, or just an old-fashioned smuggling run, everyone playing tells the tale of each job one event at a time. Every action taken, every roll of the dice, every card played advances the story, complicating the adventure of the scoundrel who’s trying to make it to payday. Adventures can be serious or silly, tame or wild, absurd or plausible, whatever the players in your game decide. Along the way, the game will have you gambling, bluffing, negotiating, and occasionally tricking other players for a bit of extra profit.
It’s a wild, woolly mess of a galaxy out there, and it’s filled with stories. See if you have what it takes to survive them in Galactic Scoundrels.
