Odd Jobs

Our first collection of 11 system-neutral micro-settings, this book gives you all the tools you need to harpoon ghosts in space, run a sleazy casino in sunken Atlantis, get in on the ground floor of a hot new god or even explore an alien world as a robot gradually discovering personhood, all in a short 3-4 adventure campaign!

Odd Jobs won the judges award for ‘Best Roleplaying Game Adventure’ at the 2022 UK Games Expo awards, and was nominated for ‘Product of the Year’ at the 2022 Ennies.

Check it out here.


Get ready to laugh, shout and possibly even get blown up by dynamite (depending on your group’s attitude to LARP) in Ker-Splat!, a high-nonsense homage to kinetic toon shorts, where you play your own assortment of animated maniacs and loony cartoons!

Check it out here.


In addition to our major releases, we periodically put out smaller stuff, more experimental minigames on the MacGuffin & Co. Patreon, as well as micro-settings as they are being written, before they are compiled into a collection!

Check it out here.


We stream every Sunday at 8pm British time. We play an array of new and weird boardgames, as well as RPGs and our own games, sometimes with an array of guests!
