This zine features the game KILLER RATINGS on one side and the KILLER RATINGS hack, TARGMARGS on the reverse side.
KILLER RATINGS is a one-shot, zero-prep, rules-light tabletop roleplaying game for 3 to 5 players and a Director. The players are the cast and crew of a terrible paranormal investigation show on the verge of cancellation.
As loud, campy reality TV stars, your gift for melodrama will be all you need to wake the dead – and may well be your key to survival once the haunting goes sideways. If it doesn’t get you killed first.
In short, you play some of the worst people on earth as they blithely walk into one of the worst places on earth, and most of you won't survive. But however it shakes out, it should make for great TV.

TARGMARGS is the official hack for KILLER RATINGS. Rather than playing reality TV ghost hunters investigating a Haunt for signs of a Ghost, you are tipsy friends wandering a superstore late at night. Instead of Provoking the Ghost into hunting you, you're causing Shenanigans until Security is alerted.
In the meantime you might engage in shopping cart destruction derbies, take to the PA for some light yodeling, or build a fort out of merchandise. But when the time comes to flee, you'd better boot and rally -- or Security might confiscate all your cool stuff.

Orders typically ship within 24-48 hours after being placed, business days only Monday - Friday. If you place an order on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday then it will not ship until the following business week.
We use USPS, UPS and DHL. Rates are based on current service rates and are subject to change. For the majority of items we ship in deluxe padded bubble mailers with bags and boards for added protection or with cardboard book mailers. Larger orders will be finely packed as well. We care about the product getting to you safe and secure.
US DOMESTIC ORDERS:
USPS Priority, UPS, and DHL
Please note that ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Shipments are sent via DHL. Shipping does not include customs fees, which are subject to each countries' tax requirement. We want you to buy with confidence but please understand that once the items leave the USA we will not be responsible for lost or damaged items unless you contact us to get additional insurance if available.
If your shipment is returned to us due to insufficient address or marked as undeliverable for any reason, we will need to collect another shipping fee in order to resend your item.
If you request an item to be returned (excluding damaged or incorrect items) then you will be responsible for the return shipping fee.
Only orders that contain items that are in stock at the time of ordering will be combined, when possible.
Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now.
Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible.
All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order.
We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders.
Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
