The Space Kings Book
Space Kings is a playing card based tabletop role-playing game designed for over-the-top interstellar adventures.
Players take on the role of tough mercenaries, plucky pop stars, and funky aliens to fight evil space governments, soulless megacorporations, and the all-consuming void.
Space Kings focuses on improvisation and character building, with small numbers and big personalities. The primary goal of each session is to tell a cool story together.
The outcomes of actions are determined by flipping playing cards off the top of your deck. Faces and Aces represent success, while Jokers cause dramatic twists of fate. Everyone flips from their own deck, so everyone has the same chance for glory and/or ruination.
