What is BaRPiG?
BaRPiG is a pocket-sized adventure party game for anyone and everyone, anywhere and everywhere. It’s a culmination of fun imaginative bar games, with the added bonus of item cards to defend yourself and attack your friends. This, combined with a level system, keeps the game competitive, whilst a damage system makes it vindictive.
It started life as a collection of silly puns we wrote down on a bar napkin a year and a half ago. It quickly became a hobby project with friends, who’s encouragement led us to bring the game to the market in it’s initial beta version, BaRPG.
The initial beta release was for only 200 copies, and it sold out in just 6 months using indie marketing strategies and working closely with local retailers in our hometown of Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
During those 6 months we focused on further developing the game using player feedback from hundreds of hours of play testing. Thanks to this feedback we knew how to make our great game even more amazing by the time we sold out.
In November 2016 we released the first prototype of BaRPiG at the Spellenspektakel convention in the Netherlands. It was an immediate hit, and we knew our next step was to launch our pocket-sized party game worldwide on Kickstarter.
We’ll be launching our campaign in March 2017, where you can also get your hands on the first copies of BaRPiG to hit the market!

Jonathan “Johno” Franklin:
Is the product designer/computer overlord and the other co-founder of BaRPG. According to Facebook he is currently in a domestic partnership with Phillip Melchers which is legally true. Born half Dutch, and half Australian, it is by our powers combined that we become CAPTAIN NETHERLANDS, saviour of the lowlands. He also presently lives in Amsterdam, and refers to Phillip as his “roommate” sometimes as to not offend Ole Miss Granger who hasn’t been the same since her son enlisted for the war. Scratch that, Ole Miss Granger died 50 years ago under mysterious circumstances, and thus is no longer capable of practicing her prejudiced opinions.
