Damn the Man, Save the Music
Click here for printouts and bonus characters
Play a crew of '90s indie record store employees trying to save your store from impending doom.
Can you appease a has-been rockstar, sell enough CDs, and find true love? You've got from 10am to midnight to try. It's very likely that everything will go wrong, but at Revolution Records, that's business as usual.
Damn the Man is inspired by movies like Empire Records and Dazed and Confused. It’s silly and heartfelt and no familiarity with the source material is necessary to enjoy the game.
3-4 players and 1 facilitator (GM), about 3 hours.
Winner of the 2018 IGDN award for Best Rules.

“Shaffer not only nails the tone of 90’s slacker comedies with the character archetypes but also provides a book full of excellent advice for anyone running their first game.” -Geek & Sundry
