Rally your amigos, let’s tell a story!
Enter the post-western galaxy of Jedi Ruben Carlos Ruiz , a mold-broken loner in over his head and wholly unafraid. Add a new action-packed, full-throttle planet-hopping adventure to Ruben’s legend as he mavericks his way out of tight situations with bare wits, bravado, and judicious application of violence; after all, he is Trouble For Hire .
Inspired by 70s road and sci-fi movies and contemporary post-westerns, Trouble For Hire is a tabletop game that casts players in the various roles involved in telling an exciting action story together. Someone plays Ruben Carlos Ruiz, the central protagonist, of course; but the other players take on roles like The Road Through The World that contains and threatens him, his trusty sidekick La Campañero , or the mystical strangeness of the inexplicable La Extraño . Play through the several included adventures, or create your own as you work together to spin fabulous, original tales of high-octane cinematic space adventure!
