Steal her 200 unreleased songs, my heart
I’m going to tell you a quick story of the biggest regret of my life. About three years ago now Carly Rae Jepsen rolled into town at a really cool local venue. Obviously, I was super excited because she’s the greatest being alive. I went online to buy the tickets, saw they were a steal at $25 apiece, and went through the website’s process.
To my horror, TicketMaster showed its ugly face. Two tickets for $50 is a no-brainer for CRJ, but TicketMaster tried charging me an additional $33 in service fees for the luxury of buying concert tickets. Distressed and heartbroken, I ultimately decided that while I wanted to see my girl more than anything on Earth, I couldn’t justify giving those thieving shits at TicketMaster damn near the cost of two tickets.
I didn’t go see Carly Rae that night, and it’s haunted me ever since.
Luckily, the hero we need, but not necessarily the one we deserve, took it upon himself to create a tabletop game based around Canada’s finest. Boy Problems is here from creator Colin Cummings to lead players on the most fabulous heist of all time: To steal Carly Rae Jepsen’s 200 unreleased tracks from some rich dick hoarding them all for himself.

Based on another popular tabletop RPG LASERS + FEELINGS, this futuristic espionage romp sees players take on the role of a member of a crew hired to infiltrate the vault of a rich collector to liberate the veritable goldmine of music within. Many of your expected TTRPG elements, including lucky rolls, sabotage, and all-around ingenuity are included, but this time with a far more important prize should you complete your task.
You can check out the official rules and artwork here. I don’t know you, Colin, but just know that I really, really, really, really, really, really like you.
