So what’s it about?

The Adventures of Kids on Bikes take place in small towns at any point in history before: 

  • everyone had a camera phone that could catch video of a ghost

  • use GPS to track a homicidal maniac roaming around town

  • research an old creaky house in seconds using the internet

Kids on Bikes takes place in a more mysterious time, where anything and everything could happen.

Kids on Bikes is a 138-page, rules-light, fast-paced storytelling game in the spirit of games like Dread, Perseverant, Monsterhearts, and other great indie titles. Kids on Bikes is perfect for game nights in which you want to get a game in RIGHT NOW. 

Using stats like GRIT, CHARM, FIGHT, FLIGHT, BRAINS and BRAWN, you’ll jump into the action. Each skill is represented by a polyhedral die based on your character’s competence. More sides = better chance of success.

That being said, even low stats always have a chance of success, as any max result EXPLODES leading to an additional re-roll contributing to the results. Lower sided dice mean bigger chances of explosions!

Character Creation

Character creation has always taken a full day to get you ready to start your first session. Kids On Bikes wants you to get started now - without losing connection or attachment to the characters you make.

Featuring an immersive town-creation process, you and the other players will create the setting for your game as you create your characters. Though you’ll start with Tropes you know and love (like the Brilliant Mathlete, the Popular Kid, or the Loner Weirdo), you’ll flesh your characters out by developing their relationships to each other and the town!

Did we mention powered characters?  

Kids on Bikes also features a character co-controlled by all of the players at the table. Using aspects of the character from the GM, players will share narrative control over what the character does - and when they use their mysterious, dangerous powers! 

Players will more than likely need their powers to get you out of a pinch, and as you play more, the powered character will get stronger and stronger!

But be careful… using powers comes with a cost…

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
