Free League’s Tales from The Loop has a premise that may sound a bit familiar, with children in the 1980s encountering otherworldly creatures from open dimensions. But it’s not like Netflix has ever capitalized on a certain show’s D&D connections, so FL has the market to themselves. It’s one of their best-selling products and a new expansion for the game has just hit shelves.

Why, oh why, has Netflix never allowed an official Stranger Things tabletop RPG? Or if they do allow it, why has no one taken up that offer? It feels like the most no-brainer product tie-in in the world. The show is one giant advertisement for tabletop games. We imagine plenty of people have watched the show and then visited their local hobby shops for the first time. That’s a lot of money left on the table. It’s nearly as bad as….NOT releasing the sequel to Knives Out in theaters for longer than three days.
Free League released an overview today of its planned release schedule for the coming year. They have six games and five expansions planned for the next eleven months, making for 11 major releases — and those are just the ones we know of. Free League says a few unannounced projects will be revealed soon. In the meantime, here’s what to expect.
After some delays, Free League is finally ready to launch Tales From The Loop: The Board Game. If you think you’ve seen this before, you haven’t….well, you have, just not in THIS form.
Tales From The Loop was such a success for Free League, they’re doing it again, only this time slightly differently. The Tales From The Loop Board Game will be set in the same world as the roleplaying game, only with different rules and more physical props.
Free League sent us a note this evening stating two of its most popular tabletop games, Tales From The Loop and Mutant: Year Zero, are now playable on the Foundry VTT (Virtual Tabletop) platform.
You can instantly build a digital collection of Free League tabletop RPGs if you act quickly. The website Bundle of Holding has announced a PDF bundle of campaigns for Coriolis: The Third Horizon and Tales From the Loop.
Free League Publishing has a lot in store for tabletop enthusiasts in the year 2021, and they mailed us a list of upcoming releases just this morning. For starters, there’s The One Ring, the RPG devoted to all things Tolkien. We’ve been covering the revised game’s Kickstarter campaign these past few months, and now that it’s complete, over two million dollars have been raised. Look for it to arrive this fall.
We’ve spent a lot of digital acreage in 2020 talking about Free League’s RPGs and other books…and if one or more of them interests you, now might be the time to act. Free League has launched a Black Friday Sale that slashes the prices of most of their core rulebooks by 50%.
Tales From The Loop is one of Free League Publishing’s most successful tabletop games, taking place in an alternate 1980s where weird monsters roam the countryside. It’s inspired spinoffs, been re-adapted as a board game, been re-envisioned as a TV series, and more. But until now, there was no official way of playing it online.
Tales From The Loop has become one of Free League Publishing’s most successful tabletop games since it was released back in 2017. It’s had several expansions since, and even its own Amazon Prime TV series. Free League wants more people to join in, so they’re introducing a Starter Set for newbies. Like the original, this slimmed-down version is set in the 1980s and based around the retro sci-fi art of Simon Stålenhag.
Tales From The Loop has never been more visible. It started as a series of paintings, was adapted into a tabletop game by Free League, and then spun off into its own Amazon Prime TV series. Now it’s about to become a board game too.
