I have a weakness for heist games: they are scenarios that work very well in role-playing, with well identified characters and objective and a thousand ways to make variations around simple schemes. Busted! doesn't reinvent the genre, but it's packed with little mechanics that emulate the risk-taking aspect of such an operation quite well, with the threat of getting caught before escaping always hanging overhead. A very stimulating read for a very promising game!
We are here to steal stuff and maybe break things. We are here to disrupt systems who despise us and who we despise, and perhaps to make lots of money. And maybe, along the way, we’ll get to unravel great mysteries about our own lives.
We may not know each other well, but we must trust each other enough to work together on this. We will press our luck and get away with the impossible. We won’t be able to do it alone.
Busted! is a roleplaying game that is also a press-your-luck card game. Tension will build as we take calculated risks to get what we want; we will flirt with disaster at every step of the way.
This game is an antifascist work of queer lit. If you’re not down with that, go away.
