Somebody has made a Carly Rae Jepsen heist tabletop RPG

Posted March 6, 2019

There’s a headline I never expected to type out. Canadian pop artist Carly Rae Jepsen has become the focus of a new tabletop RPG being written and designed by Colin Cummings. The RPG is called Boy Problems and it will have players go on a heist to recover a set of 200 unreleased Carly Rae Jepsen songs.

Whilst the premise of the game sounds initially silly, it becomes more and more intriguing when you discover that the 200 unreleased songs actually exist in the real world. All of a sudden this heist has high stakes!

Carly Rae Jepsen - Boy Problems

Boy Problems sounds like a fascinating take on tabletop gaming. The game will be an adaption of a pre-existing RPG by the name of LASERS + FEELINGS by John Harper. You can read more about Boy Problems here.

“It is many years into the future. A wealthy and powerful person (or persons) has claimed a rare and much sought after prize: the “vault” of 200 unreleased songs from renowned Canadian pop artist, Carly Rae Jepsen.”
“Hired by an anonymous sponsor, your team of highly trained individuals will raid a well-defended location to retrieve said item. From planning to set-up to execution, you will see this heist through to its completion, whether that be a success or failure. There will many twists and turns along the way, and don’t always trust the specialists by your side.”
The Tabletop RPG will be a one shot campaign with PDFs already available for download and a rule set already available (as seen above). To keep updated on the game’s progress you can follow the developer’s Twitter or just head on over to the official website to get started and recover those priceless songs!
