About the Book

In Beat the Boss you and 3 to 6 friends will take turns organizing a group of workers or community members to take part in the fight of their lives. You will identify the issues and make the banners then plan and take the actions that will change the balance of power at work.

Beat the Boss is a tabletop roleplaying game that is Powered by the Apocalypse to create a place for activists to learn how to organize on the job and in the community. With a handful of six-sided dice, a pencil, a character sheet, and a group of friends, you can learn how to move people to action and take back their power.

The game has been play tested with organizers, role players, and complete noobs to make sure the rules and language work for as many people as possible.

In February 2019, Beat the Boss ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to cover the production costs of the finished book. Nearly 300 backers bought paperback and ebooks in advance of the publication date, for a total of more than $7,500. All orders in all formats were fulfilled for readers around the world within four weeks.

In addition to the book, the following materials are available for download at DriveThruRPG:

  • Character Sheets
  • NPC Sheets
  • Universal Moves
  • Boss Moves
  • Organizing Chart

All the extras are as well-designed and easy to use as the book.
