A Role-Playing Game of Blood & Sweat, Pain & Hope
CONTENDERS is a role-playing game dealing with the shady and painful world of boxing.
Each player takes on the role of a contender, a pugilist desperate to fight his way out of the gutter.
Can your fighter build the hope and confidence necessary to become a true champion?
Or is he destined to be dragged down into a sea of pain and despair?
Contenders is a fast paced dramatic role-playing game incorporating a tense, tactical and downright brutal boxing system.
The game doesn't require a GM or any preparation time. Jump straight into the Desert City world of shady deals and broken bones.
Contenders was a winning entry in The Ronnies, a RPG design competition run by Ron Edwards, sorcerer supreme of RPG theory.
The original 24hr version is still available as a free download to give you a feel of the game.
