Audience Participation Celebrity Charity Game! Deadlands the Weird West: Night of the Chupacabra!
Something’s feeding on the local livestock and the locals claim it’s an infestation of chupacabras! But there’s more to it than that. There always is in the Weird West.
Join us in a raucous and rowdy charity session of Deadlands as a posse of hapless gunslingers, hucksters, braves, mad scientists and more take on a passel of mysterious goat-suckers and other nasty surprises. Bring your good spirits, mean streaks, and a few pesos (Chango Bucks) for EXTRA LIFE to bribe Marshal Hensley, take on a quick guest role, help out your favorite heroes, or make the players spin the “Wheel o’ Doom!”
Come take part in the Celebrity Charity Audience Participation game! Help the players! Interfere with the players! Help the GameMaster! Interfere with the GameMaster! It’s all for charity! Watch the Savage Worlds authors play the game. We auction off one spot at the table before the game starts.
