Wargame Vault announces the availability of:

Broken Contract is a game of worker insurrection in a dystopian future. Most of humanity are contracted laborers indentured to massive corporations. Those who try to throw off the shackles of oppression are termed, Breakers, for breaking their contracts. This book focuses primarily on the game's mechanics, but gives a little insight into the core struggle between the laborers trapped within the mines owned by the FerrumSky Corporation, and the contracted security force that maintains quotas and order, Black Squadron Security.

Broken Contract

The unique mechanics you want to know about:

  • Broken Contract is a micro-skirmish game where the usual engagement is 3 to 5 models per side.
  • An Initiative Deck is shuffled and the cards are dealt to each Character, making for a variable activation sequence that changes every turn.
  • Action Points are used for both Actions and Interruptions, creating hard choices. Do you blow through all of a character's Actions, or hold Action Points back to perform Interruptions later in the turn sequence?
  • Broken Contract takes emphasis away from simply moving and fighting with thematic action movie options like escaping restraints or yelling, "Stand Down!". An extensive list of possible Actions and Interruptions will ensure that there will always be multiple viable paths to victory.
  • Broken Contract uses D6s, D3s, DScatter, and two unique dice, DSuccess and DFailure (which can be recreated using a standard D6).

The 32-page, full-color Broken Contract rulebook contains all of the rules you need to get started, including:

  • The basics of playing a wargame.
  • An explanation of Stats and Checks.
  • The dynamic Action and Interruption system that is the core of the game.
  • Weapon Special Rules.
  • Creating Characters and Assembling a Crew.
  • The Hard Way: A three Act mini-campaign of replayable missions.
