A downloadable Role playing game

WHAT THE HECK IS THIS?
HOSER is a two player narrative-heavy tabletop role playing game about amateur hockey. One player is THE GOON, a thug whose only talent is fighting. The other player acts as THE REFEREE, and helps move the story forward by assuming the role of everyone else in the goon’s life. 

WHAT DO I NEED TO PLAY?
You’ll need some dice (2D6 and a D20), a copy of the character scorecard, something to write with, and an imagination for role playing. 

HELP! I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HOCKEY.
It’s cool, neither do I, and I designed this game! HOSER is heavily influenced by my favorite hockey films–Slapshot, Goon, and The Mighty Ducks. If you’re looking for inspiration for telling a story these are a great place to start.

Are you familiar with Hockeypocalypse comic book by Jeff Martin? Highly  recommended.

Right in time for the hockey season! Amazing art and great set-up. 

Thank you! If you play it please let me know how it goes!

Great and unique theme. Ambitious design. Top notch graphics and layout. Pretty cool entry for the Goon Jam. At first I thought the game looked pretty abstract, but once I walked through a scene in my head (using the cool scene generator), I realized how charged and specific each of the 9 scenes prescribed by the game could be. VERY cool ideas here. 

Yeah! Glad you liked the scene generator I think it could be super versatile for story-games of any kind. Thank you for the nice comments!

This. This is the Goon Jam we have all been waiting for.

Thanks!
