CHEW: The Roleplaying Game



The award-winning Image comic book series and New York Times Best Seller, CHEW, is cooking for a game table near you! Take a bite out of crime in a foodie crime drama about cops, crooks, cooks, cannibals, and clairvoyants in a clucked-up world.

We're building off the popular fiction-first game mechanics of Forged in the Dark to bring the action-packed comic series of food crimes, over-the-top characters, and out-of-this-world conspiracies to life.

--> Character Sheet Below <--



  • Play quirky characters in absurd situations.
  • Engage with tense over-the-top action scenes.
  • Creatively describe solutions to any obstacle.
  • Collaboratively create conspiracies with your friends.
  • Solve outlandish cases with an abusive amount of legal authority.
  • Balance your persistent personal trouble with the needs of the job.
  • Take breaks when you should be working—because dammit, you’re worth it!
--> Pages 182-183 Below <--
After a catastrophic outbreak of the bird flue kills millions, a poultry prohibition is instituted. CHICKEN is outlawed! Overnight, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration becomes the most powerful law enforcement agency on the planet. As a misfit member of the Special Crimes Division, with its nearly unrivaled authority, your job is to investigate food crimes such as chicken trafficking, egg dealing, and putting food-powered criminals behind bars. Oh, and the occasional out-of-this-world conspiracy! 
--> Investigate cases and collaboratively create conspiracies with visual storytelling aid, humorous note-taking space, and effective journal—the Conspiracy Board. <--

Can you balance the demands of your job and the needs of your family against the fate of the world? 

Sit down, dig in, and find out!


CHEW is the serialized TV show you wish you were bingeing every time you give up and throw on Parks and Rec reruns. The formula of a few parts gross cannibals-against-crime, a few parts absorbed memories, and a cast of zany lovable characters is pure CHEW." - Dave Buesing - Comic Book Herald

Any chance of this getting a physical/print on demand release?

Hi Nils! We're planning to ship physical copies in late summer or early fall for distribution in the US, Canada, UK, EU, AU, and NZ. So, you should be able to find or order a copy from your friendly local game store or the Imagining Games web store in the fall. I have a physical copy right over here, and it is AWESOME! Only $40, too, for 460 full color pages with huge sweeping art pieces.

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.
