CRABTASTROPHE is a print-and-play tabletop RPG for newcomers to our hobby that emphasizes getting to play the game ASAP. CRABTASTROPHE also dares to go where few other TTRPGs have gone before: into the recesses of the mind of crabs. It is not a challenge to be taken lightly, but in doing so you will find yourself in the midst of eldritch rituals and aberrant machinations as you and your partners in crabs scuttle out into the world to retrieve ancient items of unspeakable power.
What purpose do crustaceans have for such things?
Listen to clacking of their many claws: the answers are there for those who dare to seek it.
This is a game for 2-5 players, directly inspired by Grant Howitt's Honey Heist and Calappa Games' Fight Crab. It also derives indirect inspiration from the Cthulhu Mythos, the GMTK Game Jam, and the general umbrella of pulp fantasy fiction.
In terms of expertise, it also helps that Nerdhogg wrote his Master's thesis on crabs.
