Pasión de las Pasiones is a telenovela tabletop roleplaying game designed by Brandon Leon Gambetta. The game was first published by Magpie Games in ashcan form in November of 2017, and he’s been working on it ever since, refining mechanics and polishing ideas until it was ready for the spotlight! ¿Estás listo?
Whether you’re a lifelong fan or a novato to the dramas of telenovelas, Pasión is your entry to a world filled with adoración, alegría, placer, traición, or rivalidad. In Pasión de las Pasiones, you and your friends will play out the stories of the greatest telenovela ever to air—a telenovela called, of course, Pasión de las Pasiones. You won’t be playing the actors, directors, or camera crew; instead, you’ll be playing a dangerous character like El Gemelo, or you’ll be playing an innocent character, striving for love, like La Empleada. You’ll play through stories with dramatic reveals, explosive confrontations, evil twins, and more!
A note from Brandon: “I’ve never been more proud of something I’ve created and the Magpie Games team has made this game more beautiful and refined than I could have hoped for. That we are here – after all the nights and playtests and days – seems like a dream. It has felt constantly like I am filled with butterflies, each tweet of recognition and each call to know more has been another set of fluttering wings in my stomach. Thank you for coming on this journey with me over the years, all of you. Now we see the fruits of that work and I am so excited for you to see and play this game in it’s realized form.”
