BEAN! Second Edition is out now

The Second edition of BEAN! The D2 RPG is now available for download. Jeff Freels, Tunnels and Trolls artist extraordinaire and all round nice guy, wrote and illustrated this simple and fun RPG.

This new edition has a streamlined layout along with new rules for archetypes, skills, mounted combat and new monsters and spells.

If you're introducing kids to the wonders of roleplaying, BEAN! is the perfect game to get them started with. Instead of fiddly polyhedrons, the game uses beans, or coins or whatever has two sides that you can chuck onto the table.

But grizzled veterans definitely won't be disappointed, as the rules-lite gameplay allows for focus on roleplaying rather than massive volumes of rules.

So what are you waiting for? Get BEAN! It's way cheap!


  1. That's really cool. I suspect you already know this, but just in case you (or other readers) don't, there is a solo adventure for BEAN written by Ken St. Andre, available for free over on

    Here's the blurb from the site:

    "DEATH PHROGG ATTACK is the new BEAN! The D2 RPG adventure written by Ken St. Andre. Ken has been creating great games for years, most notably Tunnels & Trolls, and I'm thrilled that he's written this fun little mini-solo. Oh, and did I mention it's FREE?!"

  2. Cheers for mentioning that, Bard. I've actually played through that solo. Lots of fun, but is over very quickly. Then again it does have replay value.
