YOU are a member of a heist crew about to pull off ONE LAST JOB. You and your crew are under the impression that you only have 24 HOURS left with one another - 12 to finalize your preparation, and 12 to pull off the heist itself.

You and your crew are wrong.

You are about to find yourselves trapped in a loop of those same 24 hours, living and reliving them as many times as it takes to identify every complication, refine your plan, and get it right. No one besides your crew will remember the previous loops as clear as day, but make a strong enough impression on someone in one loop and it might carry to the next. What you do here matters. What you do here has to matter, if you ever want to say your final goodbyes and get out of the game for good.

Time to drop. Fuck shit up.

Time To Drop is a GM-less tabletop game where you and your friends take on the roles of a heist crew trapped in a time loop, trying to get their final job right and ride off into the sunset with the goods. You'll use dice and a tarot/oracle deck to determine and overcome Complications such as your Mark, and the Guard of the goods you're after, ally with NPCs, and spend downtime phases working through your feelings about the crew splitting up.

Time To Drop was written for the Record Collection 2k22 Jam, and is designed to be played while listening to Nonagon Infinity by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. It also includes seven optional challenge modes to play.

Played this for the first time today and it absolutely slaps. We had a pretty smooth first loop but failed to clear anything and ran out of time just as we picked up the goods, and one misstep in our second loop led to a cascade of complications that took us in some wild directions. (We just wanted the radioactive relic, but hey, if getting it involves throwing a wrench in the rise of an intergalactic autocrat, who are we to complain?) Finally clearing our first few complications felt like the moment a heist movie flashes back to show you how a ruinous plot twist was really part of the plan all along--by the time we made it out on the third loop we all wished we could watch a trailer for our crew.

We loved the balance of the rules being very open-ended, but giving us just enough structure to keep us moving. I'm slated to play with another group of people in a few weeks and it's rad to know that rendition will be a totally different game! (Also, shoutout to simothys for the idea of using a big sheet of paper and a bunch of colored pens, which made notetaking a delight.) What a blast, this was cinematic and joyous and I'm already hyped for the next time.

ahhhhh that's awesome!! i'm so glad you had a good time!


Thank you so much for this game! I’ve been meaning to play it for months, and finally got a group together to do so. The energy change in the room as Robot Stop started playing was REAL. We were having the worst luck and got up to 5 simultaneous complications, then we rolled to clear The Mark, and the way everyone yelled seeing an 11 was WILD. All in all, this was a fantastic game, and I will be playing it again. So many thanks!!

We got a huge sheet of paper on the table and gave everyone a different colored pen, which really added to it. Everyone was writing their relationships to everyone on the paper, and there’s so many doodles. I’m definitely keeping the paper. (And we even used a cyberpunk themed tarot deck!)

this is so sweet!! thank you for the lovely comment, i'm so glad you had a great time!

Amazing idea for a ttrpg, I got a community copy and had a blast playing it. The only "issue" we've run into is that we've done everything for each loop before the timer ran out, but that's really not a problem. It gives me a reason to play it again but with a shorter album :)


Hell yeah, would def recommend it! loads of fun with my dnd group!!! :D


played it with my dnd group and it was great fun. Good album also.


thank you for the community copy!! this game sounds amazing


this idea sounds groundbreaking and i'll be sure to share it with everyone i know. so excited to play it with my partner. thank you so much for the community copy!

of course!! i hope you have fun!


Amazing idea for a ttrpg and I can't wait to play it! thank you for the community copy! 

no problem!


This game WHIPS - hearing the music cut out in the middle of a scene is totally heartstopping. 10/10

thank you!!! i'm glad you had a good time with it :D


Thanks for community copy! I've been searching on some fun thing to do with my friends, but I'm currently (due to actions of some madman that took control in our country and made everyone else hate us) unable to purchase anything online whatsoever. Once I'm out of there I hope I'll be able to purchase a copy normally, with a tip

Now my job is to convince my friends to give it a try, because it looks so damn cool :)

no prob!! i've been trying to stay on top of refreshing the community copies so that anyone who needs one can grab it :)


This looks so good omg.  :)

Do you happen to know whether anyone's hacked together some roll20 integration for playing it online?


not that i know of, but another commenter made a google sheets template for playing it online!



We haven't gotten a chance to play this, yet, but we wanted to thank you for including community copies for folks like us who are on super hard times right now. It means a lot to see that in every day life. (:

That being said, it looks really fun and we can't wait to try it out (if we find people to play with lol)

Will spread the word!

of course!! i've been trying to stay on top of restocking the community copies but they've been going VERY fast, haha

I like this game but I cannot pay for it, could you please make some community  copies?I really want to try this!!!!!!!!


hey!! i hadn't noticed that the community copies had run out, i just re-upped them!


I played through in a group of 5 friends and it was so fun! We almost cleared the first loop, then failed three times in the second... 

Also, I made a Google Sheet template for running Time To Drop online, if you want to take a look. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jB0dKWl7q0GJ5OzvkdJI2ulUDKzOVuIDvsdSuzW2..

We playtested the 1.2 rules during the Moon Landing charity stream and it was an incredible game! Here's part 1 of that actual play.


Played this with my mom and sister yesterday. We cleared it in two loops, our dice LOVED US! It was such a blast, coming up with what all the cards meant and roleplaying the team and all the NPCs. It went in a completely wild direction from what we'd planned, which only got us laughing nearly uncontrollably. Thank you for such a fun game!

yoooo this rules!! i’m glad you had a blast!
