Urban Manhunt: the Miniatures Game
Publisher: Spectrum Games
by Michael S. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/23/2019 10:11:21

GREAT competative miniatures game that also works very well for solo gaming. Rulebook is lavishly illustrated with art that extrudes the feel of "The Running Game" and similar movies. Editorials and Setting Articles give a solid understanding of the game's premise and the rationale for game rules implementation. Really like the straight-forward rules for creating your own Hunters and the wide range of options for making them yours. Card-based Crims activtion is very straight-forward and rules are fully explained and examples are provided for all critical game activities. Have already dugout my old Necromunda terrain and miniatures and have started design of a modular 3ftx3ft playing board.

Please keep this line moving forward. Really looking forward to expansions.

Only one question: When can we see printed versions for rules, and more importantly, card sets. Eagerly awaiting with $$ in hand to purchace both.

I'm extremely happy you like the game... and rest assured, Urban Manhunt will be fully supported, complete with an advancing timeline. The Event Deck is already available in print format (https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/248231/Urban-Manhunt--Event-Deck), but I had to revise something on the pack that contains the Control Cards and Crim Cards. They'll be available shortly as well. The hardcover version is already at the printers and I await my proof copy, so it won't be long before it's available. The softcover version is being sent to the printers tonight. Lastly, please show off your 3x3 zone on our official Facebook group.
Fistful of Lead: Galactic Heroes

GREAT Addition to the Fistful of Lead system!! As always, clearly wrotten rules with just the right amount of new rules to fully immerse the players in the pulpy retro-Scifi genre. The "Crew Traits" are are very nice addition and "Powers" make it very easy to give your scenaios the Star Wars feel. The Codex Glactica and Vehicle Instruction Manual are the icing on the cake, giving players all the options they need to generate exciting campaigns in a univere of their choosing. Keep up the great work.

BTW: When will we see a Post-apocalyptic setting complete with mutations and creatures in the vein of Gamma World?

Finishing touches on Fistful of Lead Core rulebook (stripped down GH) then Tales of Horror. Final edits of both in progress along with ToH cards. Then Wastelands Warriors should be around the corner. -J

I really like what you have here. This is a great foundation for an outstanding skirmish game - very flexible with a truly "HEROIC" feel. Don't get me wrong, the base game presented here is extremely playable, BUT we need more. Really hope you do publish the additional content to discussed in your Design Notes.

Thanks for the kind words. I am already tinkering (fine tuning?) some mechanics around fighting styles, I want people to be able to reflect what their miniatures look like with a bit more accuracy. Currently I am working on two handed style, sword and shield, and dual weapon. Then there will be more abilities of course and a more detailed experience system. Plus anything else that creeps into my head! Please do feel free to create an account on The Wargames Website and join in the conversations there about the rules and see what other people are doing.
The Frontier Starter Edition
Publisher: One Dwarf Army
by Michael s. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/09/2017 09:46:41

Great game!!! Unique, but familiar, approach to a d20- variant system. Impressed with the wide variety of gear; particularly armor/weapons and the ability to specialize their functionality. Character generation takes less that two minutes and before you know it you are in the thick of battle. The combat system uses a straightforward attribute comparision approach with a fun die rolling mechanizm (multiple dice roll taking highest die instead of total and in certain situations exploding dice) Eagerly looking forward to the final product. Definitely on my BUY list.

Absolutely sectacular game. Great translation of basic Black Hack rules to a fun and gritty Sci-Fi setting in the vein of Aliens and other bug-hunting genres. Hope we see more for this system: more creatures, equipment, scenarios, and campaign setting ideas. System is ripe for expansion.

Very interesting game system and setting. Surprised to see D8 use rather than the more comom D6 or D10, but it works. Short skill list (16 skills sread equally across the character's four base attritbutes) but they cover all the basic essentials needed to function in a post-apocalyptic setting. The dot-dirven character creation (similar to White Wolf games) was a breeze and gives a lot of flexibility. Really like the approach taken with character advancement, it provides players with the ability to advance their character based on its actions during play rather than simply gathering XP to reach the next level. The provided setting gives just enough detail to get your mind going and allows both the GM and his players to coopratively shape their game as they see fit. For $7 you cannot not download this game! Truely hope that this author will continue development of this setting.

GREAT EFFORT. Love the Noir feel and the weidness aspect. Unique addaptation of the FATE Accelerated Approaches rules that ACTUALLY WORKS!! This setting is wide open for expansion. Personally already looking at b ringing in some concepts from Venture City to expand the super feel of the game. Hope you continue to expand this setting.

Tribal - skirmish combat game

Great game wide open to future additions. Love the card based encounter system. Gives the players a wide range of options regarding execution of encounters with your enemies. Thought about only giving a 4-star rating due to the heavy ink cost of printing out the rules. Will award you 5 Hounor if you add a print-friendly version of the rules to this download. Eargerly looking at where you take this system. Particularly interested in potential application to urban gang war scenarions.

Battleblade
Publisher: Echidna Games
by Mike S. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/31/2016 14:42:01

The author's evolution of this skirmish system from Alien Worlds to LaserBlade to BattleBlade has brought a unique sophistication to the game system without sacrificing quick play and more importantly fun. System is fast from party creation to scenario play and lends itself to single-session, linked-secenario campaign play. The structure of all three games in this system allows players or run wild with house rules that tweak game play to their vision with little to no playability sacrifice.

Date Added: 11/19/2015 12:42:34

A D10 spinoff of this company's D6 Alien Worlds game, this game caters to children and adults alike who are looking for a simple, straightforward rule set that lets you quickly enter into exciting tabletop battles with virtually any miniature figures you may own. More importantly the system is open to addition of fan-generated rules and special character abilities allowing players to easily adapt this system to other genres.

Alien Worlds

Great game for introducing young children to the mechanics of skirmish gaming. Gives children leeway to let their imaginations go wild and create the types of characters they want will no need for complex rules. Game plays smoothly and games can be completed in an hour from character/unit creation to scenario end. For those with slightly older kids (or adults looking for simple, straightforward skirmish fun with any figures they may own) I would recommend that you also look at this company's other offering "Laserblade".

Dimensions, the RPG

Wonderful game. Harkens back to RISUS: The Anything Game, but (in the opinion of this player) much more playable. Have been dying to dig out my Fudge Dice and play a system without all the complexity of the deluge of FATE systems on the market. The DIMENSIONS rule-base is extremely easy to expand and the system is quickly adaptable to virtually any genre of combination of genres.

GREAT ADDITION to the Shootin Iron system. Not only do you get a host of new Townsfolk to add to your game, but the Big Damn Heroes Special Abilities table opens up the possibility of easily creating more experienced posses with unique features.

Based on a first read (have not yet played) this game is a definite 5. Structuring and presentation of rules is excellent and illustrations are amazing. The ARENA system is a refreshing take on narrative RPGs (dare I say, even rivaling FATE). The rules are complete with examples detailing both character creation and actions during play. The narrative nature of these rules will make it very simple to adapt adventures from other PULP-style games. Current edition of the rules has a few minor errors, but I'm sure these will see correction as time goes by. Can not wait to see where the author takes this system. REALLY want more, especially "Witches" as referenced at the end of these rules.

Great little game. You can throw together two opposing gangs in under 5 minutes and be shootin' up the landscape. The straightforward system is ripe for fan additions from other Wild West RPGs/skirmish games including the author's Shotguns & Saddles RPG.
