First They Came

A blindfold roleplaying game

An one-of-a-kind RPG set in Berlin in 1942.

First They Came is an innovative role-playing game, designed for one-shot sessions and lasting 2-3 hours for 3 to 5 players, created by The Chaos League. It’s an immersive roleplaying game, designed to be played blindfolded or in the dark, to imitate the conditions in which the characters in the story find themselves.

First They Came needs no game master or preparation. It not just a manual, but a richly illustrated, full-color artbook. The entire game is supported and complemented by audio tracks designed to take immersion and identification to a higher level, downloadable from a dedicated link or using a QR code included in the book. The music and ambient sounds are organically incorporated into the different scenes and provide atmospheres, clues, and threats. Guided by audio tracks, players step into the role of those persecuted by the regime for ethnic, political, gender, or religious reasons.

Players find themselves inside an apartment in a suburban building during a grey Berlin morning in 1942. They heard "them" coming with sirens blaring and ran to the only place they could hide: the attic. It’s dark there, they hold their breath, then comes a whisper. They are not alone.

First They Came is produced by Chaos League, and its English edition is distributed by Ares Games.
