Three New Releases for April 2018

At AdeptiCon we debuted three new releases and they are available on the Breaker Press webstore now!

Broken Contract The Day-to-Day Starter Box
This Starter Box is a revised and reimagined version of last year's starter box. The box we brought out to the world through Kickstarter last year contained a lot of stuff, but in retrospect may have been a touch overwhelming to new players. The focus then was on creating a sandbox for players who wanted to create their own characters and crews, but it was too much stuff to make a smooth introduction.

The Day-to-Day Starter Box seeks to resolve that by adding our Introductory Episode Book, The Day-to-Day and keeping the cards and models strictly to those on the sample crew rosters included in the book. The three scenarios are meant to guide the players through progressively more involved Acts, composing a mini-campaign called an Episode. 


The Day-to-Day Starter Box is the perfect introduction to the miniature game, Broken Contract. Contained within are the Broken Contract Rule Book, The Day-to Day Introductory Episode Book, 8 metal miniatures, a game map, 64 cards, 30 chits, 8 character dashboards, 4 dice, and 2 rulers - everything you need to get up and playing Broken Contract.

Note: If you already own last year's Starter Box, you don't need this one. Instead, you want...


Broken Contract The Day-to-Day Introductory Episode Book
Knowing that our existing fan-base already own the previous Starter Box, we chose to make The Day-to-Day Episode Book a product available separately as well. 

The Day-to-Day is the first in a series of Episode books for Broken Contract, and requires the Broken Contract Rulebook to be played. Contained within these pages are three Introductory scenarios, called Acts, that build into a mini campaign that will give the players hours of gaming entertainment as a single Episode, or can be inserted into your own campaigns to be played again and again.

Included in this Episode are three scenarios, background information, four double sided game map tiles, and a sample crew roster.


Tooth Chipper: Wild in the Streets Fanzine Issue #1
Last fall I pitched the idea to Chris at Slow Death Games that I wanted to do fanzine-style gaming supplement for his game, Wild in the Streets. He loved the idea, so we set about collecting a fun batch of scenarios and staging some cool photos to set the scene. Real life suggested music playlists help set the tone for your games as things get ugly at the fur protest or you try to sneak into a 21+ show of your favorite washed-up punk band!

This issue contains five new scenarios: 
-Record Store Day by Chris Kohler 
-Fur Free Friday by Nick Baran 
-Not-So-Secret Sipper by Ash Barker 
-21+ = 0 by Nick Baran 
- Rival Shows by Nick Baran

This fanzine is also packed with references for anyone who wants to start a deep dive into the music subcultures that are the basis for the game, in lieu of the "background" that is found in most game publications.

Stay tuned as we repackage some of our existing range of models, cards, and dice and keep your eyes peeled for our next Kickstarter for some brand new models!

Thanks for reading.
-Nick

Building a Punk Venue for WitS Pt. 1

Chris from Slow Death Games/Wild in the Streets isn't going to be able to make it to AdeptiCon this year so the Breaker Press Games booth is going to be running Wild in the Streets demos in addition to our yearly introduction to Broken Contract. This means that I'm going to need suitable scenery to use for demo purposes, as well as for photos used in Tooth Chipper Fanzine. With that in mind, I looked around the internet in search of buildings that fit my vision of the hip neighborhoods I've frequented around the country as my old bands toured. Everywhere I looked, the modern buildings I was most drawn to were all from the TT Combat City Scenics line.

I looked at their entire range, and even though their old theatre, comic book store, and music shop all seemed like automatic selections, I needed to get the most bang and flexibility for my buck, so I ordered their Take Away set online, which is meant to be a stripmall with 3 restaurants in it. Eagerly, I waited for it to ar…

Rust Pointe Dumpster Review

I came back from AdeptiCon with a bunch of stuff. I acquired the vehicles for Wreck-Age that my partner and I backed on Kickstarter. I picked up a few Aetherium miniature sets to use for my own Broken Contract games set in the FerrumSky Mines, as well as for playtesting a future BC expansion. Finally, I came back with a bunch of scenery kits from Death Ray Designs.


The first project I chose to dive into when I got home was the Rust Pointe Dumpster from Death Ray Designs. I bought three of them and I have them all in various stages of completion. I don't generally do reviews, but I was so impressed with this little kit, that I wanted to talk about it.

As you can see in the photo above, it's just a rectangular dumpster, and a tiny kit at that. The immediate thing I want to note is that it comes with assembly instructions. A bunch of other MDF kits I own have no instructions, which was fine for the simpler ones. The last building I built though, had a bunch of successive layers …
