There's A Tales From The Loop Boxed Starter Set Coming

Free League has announced a boxed starter set for its Tales from the Loop RPG. This is the awesome Swedish game based on the artwork of Simon Stålenhag (the art book which has also inspired an upcoming TV show on Amazon!)

You can already pre-order the boxed set. It includes a rulebook, an adventure called The Recycled Boy, five regenerated characters, plus a map and dice. It's coming out in April, and costs the equivalent of $27.

What I found intriguing is that FL has started an individual website for both the TV show and the game.

They are not playing around at all to grab new customers when the show goes live.

That would be like a D&D movie being made and Hasbro puts up a standalone D&D website to promote both the movie and the starter set together.

It's pretty much a no-brainer, but you rarely see it done at this level.

That's definitely a little unusual -- Free League and the TV show aren't connected; they're just both inspired by the same art book. But it makes sense to capitalize on the show.

That's what I thought, but given the subject matter regeneration is a possibility. I think it's a cool possibility.
 
Can you play this game with children?
When asked that by a parent at a convention last year, my reply was: better not, because they might pick up tricks that you don't want them to know about. As often with games where you play kids, it's often not a good idea to play them with kids. Except for a couple of games directly adressed at kids.

My Tales from the Loop games often involve stuff like lying to your character's parents, leaving the house after curfew, and doing dangerous stuff. Not something that kids should learn from a game :)
 
Tales from the Loop is a solid game. A lot of fun and very evocative. The show looks promising, and I hope it translates to more people finding the game.

If you haven't tried it yet, you should definitely give it a shot.

I believe all the same stuff on the loop-rpg site is on the free league site

Seems pretty exciting, nice to have a box set for this game.

"...five regenerated characters ..."
Normally I'd think that was a typo of "pregenerated", but considering the source, I'm not going to bet on it.
