Judge Dredd has been the inspiration for four role-playing game systems. These games are based on the fictional world of the Judge Dredd series from the British comic 2000AD. The role-playing games are unrelated to each other except for the setting.

Games Workshop[edit]

The first, Judge Dredd: The Role-Playing Game, was published under license by Games Workshop in the 1980s and used a rules system created specifically for the game, which resembled GW's Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay.

Mongoose Publishing[edit]

In 2002, Mongoose Publishing acquired the rights to publish games set in the worlds created by 2000AD, and they quickly released Sláine and Judge Dredd role-playing games, which used the d20 rules system. A total of 14 supplements were released for the Judge Dredd d20 RPG, in addition to support in their in-house magazine, Signs & Portents. In 2009, Mongoose Publishing released a new version of Judge Dredd, using their Traveller rules set, followed by a Strontium Dog game, also using Traveller rules. Mongoose announced that their license was ending in late 2016.

EN Publishing[edit]

In February 2017, EN Publishing announced the new Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD Tabletop Adventure Game[1] using the What's OLD is NEW (WOIN) roleplaying game system. The first releases were the Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD core rulebook, and The Robot Wars adventure/sourcebook in early 2019.
