Armored Reckoning Online Playtest (Respond by 5/31)

World War II hasn't worked out the way the Allies planned. In a deadly and inexplicable Second Blitz, German tanks have overrun Allied lines. Nazis now threaten Paris, Rome, and Warsaw with renewed occupation. Your company of soldiers and freedom fighters, trapped behind enemy lines with barely-operational light tanks, may be the last hope for the war effort.

Work with your teammates in this GM-less roleplaying game to wreak havoc behind German lines. Uncover the source of their renewed military might, and put a stop to it. Alternate between tense engagements using a card-based tactical system and narrative downtime scenes, where characters and conflicts take center stage.

2 to 5 players, 4 to 6 online sessions (each 2 to 4 hours)


Preferred nights are Wednesday or Thursday, starting after 7pm Eastern, online
