Skyjackers!Click to magnify



Three men struggle to cut through the hull of a cargo ship as a giant security robot joins the fray and ruins their plans!

Skyjackers! is a highly replayable, one hour long, semi-competitive role playing game for 2-3 players about daring high altitude heists and backstabbing. Originally created for Pocket Quest 2024, this game was designed for GM-less, one shot sessions that are very quick to set up, and although it can also be played SOLO, you'll only get the full experience if you bring a couple of 'friends' for the ride. ---

Humanity has spread across the solar system - powered by new technologies and corporate greed - ushering in a new golden age. Culinary delights grown in Aquaculture Farms on the Moon. Mass produced armaments made in Roaming Forges on Mars. Medicinal miracles from the Cloud Cities on Jupiter. The wealth of the stars funneled back to Old Earth in gleaming fleets of autonomous cargo ships. The rich got richer. The poor got ANGRIER.

Pushed out of your job by the encroaching robotic workforce and drowning in DEBT, you take to the skies in a desperate bid to make it right by might. Become a Skyjacker, assemble your Crew and pull off the most daring heist in recorded history!

Ride on the back of a cargo ship as it rapidly descends through the atmosphere. Cut your way through the hull, survive violent decompression, defeat security-bots, and make it out with the Loot! Perhaps this time, if you play your cards just right, you'll finally be able to buy yourself a ticket to a settlement beyond the belt. But watch your back, because in this environment the most volatile thing is ... TRUST.

All you'll need to embark on this space adventure is ...

  • This Rulebook
  • A deck of standard playing cards (54 cards including jokers)
  • 6-sided dice (4 should be enough)

  • Learn a simple rule-set to generate highly replayable dynamic challenges for your Crew to tackle. (No two runs will be the same!)
Are you ready? Come join this high-stakes adventure where you must extract as much as loot as you can, as the clock counts down, without being taken out of the game. Just remember, trust no one and play to win - because - if the murder-bots don't get you first, your so-called 'friends' surely will ...

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.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
