Big Eyes, Small Brains is the third book in our 4"x6" Pocket RPG line. We take the Parody Hammer to the anime world with this bitingly satirical take on the genre's countless tropes and icons. Its over-the-top take on everything, from mecha to those slice-of-life shows that seem to be everywhere nowadays, is sure to bring smiles to players new and old.
Big Eyes, Small Brains may end up with a higher retail price once we launch, as this extra-big edition is twice as thick as previous Pocket RPGs Laser Metal and DnDizzle. For the presale period, though, we're matching the price of our previous adventures until the final retail price is confirmed. Order today, to lock in your book, as well as all digital stretch goals that are earned during our Kickstarter, which launches on April 18, 2019!
Our Kickstarter goes live on April 18th at noon PST. There you will be able to get BESB, our other PRPGs, custom NPCs, Custom adventure and more. Following the Kickstarter, customers will be eligible to purchase all physical add-ons at Kickstarter prices. The final package is expected to ship out in Late Summer 2019.

Replicants! is a Scifi themed resource gathering game for most ages. Each round you deal out a new resource grid, then players take turns placing their drones on the grid to collect the corresponding resources and then use them to level up their Replicants in order to gain victory points, abilities and of course, more Replicants. It is a relatively fast paced game that is half turn based and half simultaneous play that accommodates 2-6 player and takes 45 minutes to an hour to play.
Time has passed, the Replicants have begun to rebuild a society of their own and the spine of this new society is a network of space stations being built by the United Sol Colonies mega hive. All are welcome on these new space stations so long as they help pitch in to keep them growing. In this expansion excess resources are no longer discarded. Instead you get to put them in your locker to be used on the space station to either help build it out or to activate the abilities of the various rooms. So join with the U.S.C. to make a better life for all Replicant kind.

DnDizzle: Dragons in the Hood: is the first game in the Pocket RPG Series. It is an affectionate parody of 80s & 90s hip-hop culture and classic adventure role-playing.
In DnDizzle you take on the role of a heroic OG battling against the menacing black dragon that has taken over the city dump and is summoning monsters to destroy the OGs and their hood.
This game is for mature players for language, drug use and violence. If you don't mind some fantasy adult content and would like a good laugh, come join the fight and become a legend of the hood.
Laser Metal: Welcome to Brutalia, a world that thrives on violence, the cheer of the crowd, and the mysterious force known only as... "The Metal". Join a band and fight for survival in Arena 66; the last bastion of civilization in a war torn world. Travel the wasteland in search of supplies, weaponry, and a whole lot of trouble. You know, because war... War never... Oh, never mind.
Laser Metal is the second game in Attention Span Games’ line of pocket sized RPGs, our mix and match line of stand-alone RPGs. Now we bring you the Heavy Metal Scifi addition to this comedic series. Will you mix up these two different genres or keep them separate? The choice is yours.
Carmine: A Role Playing Game of Alchemical Fantasy: takes place in a land of beauty and violence. Terrors claw their way out of the mists of the veil to bring suffering to all those unfortunate enough to get in their paths. Monstrous humanoids, known as the Taligar, roam the land bringing pain and war to the unprepared.
Not all of Carmine is untamed, bastions of humanity have sprung up all across the island. These places are protected by casted heroes, trained to be the defenders or conquers of the world.
"Mechanics covers skills, abilities, and combat. As stated before, the system uses a simple roll-over d20 system using your attribute and skill ranks as direct bonuses to your roll. The lists of skills is more than sufficient and divided into standard and weapon types. The weapon skills simply differentiate those used for weapon use versus those used for all other types of action. Abilities are those that further define what your character is capable of doing better than everyone else. The list is a bit small but ample. In addition, these abilities can easily be expanded upon to add new castes and factions for designing unique character types. Combat is very straight-forward"
~Aaron T. Huss - Roleplayer's Chronicle
Shrouded behind the Veil is an unbelievable darkness, waiting and ever present… Deep within the blackness is a reality too bleak to comprehend. A maddening truth in the darkness is about to be revealed, whether Carmine is ready or not.
Carmine: Truth in the Darkness is the first expansion to the Carmine universe. It takes the setting ten years into the future, adding new places, castes, factions, and technology to the experience. The book also adds extended knowledge about the existing world. We invite you to experience this epic, full-world expansion and see what's next for Carmine and its citizens.
Carmine: A Role Playing Game of Alchemical Fantasy required to play.
The Void has come and gone, mostly. It has been too many years to remember. The Void has receded some but still remains visible in the distance, like an albatross, while tales of the Void seeping back in certain parts of Carmine have been reported.
Rumors have spread that it isn’t just a shroud or a punishment for our sins, as previously believed. Rather, some theorize that the Void may be a living thing, creeping closer ever so slowly so as to remain unnoticed, and while it recedes in some parts, it is only to encroach upon others.
Wild rumors of new, more terrifying creatures have also been sparked. Undead beings from the Void, shambling out in random places. No one can really confirm these rumors, as those who've supposedly encountered these wretched beings haven't survived to account for what they saw. It can only be surmised by the anguish etched on the faces of supposed victims that a horrific death was encountered before meeting their maker.
This campaign is a compilation of the three Codex of Pandemonium adventures that lead your party across Carmine in search of a mysterious book rumored to be full of answers, knowledge and great power.
Requires Carmine Core Book to Play.
