Eat the Reich

ADD TO WISHLIST >

The year is 1943. You are a team of crack vampire commandos with one mission: drink all of Hitler’s blood.

Eat the Reich is a tabletop roleplaying game in which you, a vampire commando, are coffin-dropped into occupied Paris and must cut a bloody swathe through nazi forces en route to your ultimate goal: drinking all of Adolf Hitler’s blood.

It’s written by Grant Howitt (Honey Heist, Spire, Heart) and illustrated by Will Kirkby (Critical Role, Image, Darkhorse, Boom).

This over-the-top, ultraviolent game is designed to be played from beginning to end in one to three sessions of carnage, blood magic, meaningful flashbacks and hundreds upon hundreds of extremely dead fascists. It tells one story, it tells it loud, and it tells it brilliantly. Think Wolfenstein crossed with Danger 5 and you’re not far off the mark.

Eat the Reich is a lavishly illustrated, beautifully written 72-page rulebook and it has everything you need to get started:

  • A quick-to-learn D6 dice pool system – the Havoc Engine – that encourages creative violence
  • Enemy reinforcement rules that keep the vampire invaders on their toes
  • Pregenerated iconic characters (with room to level up)
  • Gruesome augmented Übermenschen (drink their blood to level up)
  • Non-accurate maps of Paris with lots of location details and ideas for fun things to destro

Coming with a review based on my Kickstarter copy. First: the physical books are extraordinarily nice. The art contributed so much to the feel of the game and how we felt at the table. Much more than any other RPG I've ever played, except maybe Wildsea or Vaesen. I would have liked a quick reference for the players, maybe a map, but we did pretty well without.

The game itself is very narrative forward. It's pretty clear after playing that the mechanical aspects of the game are just there to throw some extra chaos into the game, though my players brought plenty with them.

I've only played as a 4 hour oneshot, and that feels about right to me (in spite of the suggestion of "2-3 locations per sector"). The material in the book is very focused on over the top opportunities for comical bloody mayhem. That was great fun for a short game. For a longer game, or multiple games, I think it would start to feel a bit one note. Even towards the end of my oneshot I was starting to feel a...See more

I partecipated in the Kickstarter so I down want to buy again the product in order to write a review: here is my 5 stars review.

Very clever game, interesting setting and extremely fun. I played three runs with different players and they all enjoyed the game. Suitable for a two-session shot, in which the player will improvise a lot. It has a very narrative approach to conflict resolution: players and master roll the dice, then the players describe their success. The master is there only to ensure a coherent world and roleplay some notable NPC.

Very fun, it's worth it.

Reich is a weird word. It actually parallels the English word "realm". To the point that in multiple Germanic languages, France is named "Frankreich" or "Frankrijk", which means "Realm of the Franks". Clearly, this game is talking about the Third Reich, however, a game titled "Eat the Reich" where you wake up in Frankreich as a vampire... I mean, that probably implies you were indeed eating the Reich. Interesting, if I might say so.

I don't know what the point was with this comment, but you do realize the parallel between "Eat the Rich" and "Eat the Reich"? It is a play on words and in my opinion quite a clever one when looking at the theme of the game.

You and I have different opinions when it comes to cleverness, it seems.
And yes, I did realise the pun.

This hobby is made by and for nerds, typically brainy people, and specifically those who spend their time using their intellects to create and imagine shared worlds. This idea that there should be a correct level of braininess and that is something that a person can undesirably exceed is not an idea that should be held by this community. If your position is to get upset that someone is appearing "too smart", let me take this opportunity to remind you that this is a hobby about inventing and solving mind puzzles. This sort of short poppy nonsense shouldn't be anywhere on our lips. Ever. And especially not in the roleplaying game space. You, I and all the rest assembled here play make-believe warriors and wizards in our spare time for fun. It's okay to "be very smart", even when you didn't actually mean that at all.

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.
