What a great minis skirmish game! It is the perfect weight for my son and I. He is not much of a gamer so he will lose interest in any game with too many rules. He enjoys this game because it plays quick and there are not a lot of stuff for him to remember.
I enjoy playing it because even though it’s light on the rules it still has neat effects charts, special abilities for the teams and just enough tokens in the play area. I also find the Die Type mechanic quite ingenious. So simple to grasp and even if you are rolling d4s vs. d10s, you always feel like you have a chance against your opponent.
I can’t wait to get more of my gaming buddies playing this. I don’t think it will be a hard sell at all. Also, what a great cover! Hats off to you Casey.

I love this book. These are the rules my buddies and I have been looking for our journeys in the Earth’s post-apocalyptic landscape. The main mechanic of the game, the stat test is simple to understand and teach to others. My gaming group, one new guy and three experienced players, were up and playing in less than 15 minutes and that included rolling up characters. The selection of 8 different classes/races hits the sweet spot. Not so many to overwhelm your players but there is still enough variety, so every class/race is unique and has a place in the party.

The book is nicely illustrated and written with a great tongue in cheek attitude but as a GM what I appreciate the most are all the random generation tables. Twenty pages of stuff like Bring the Crazy, Punishments of the Ruined Earth and Weird Weather. All good stuff that helps when your players decide to do exactly what you didn’t prepare for and you need something interesting and whacky to keep the game going.

Mike’s love of Thundarr the Barbarian comes through in every page. Being a fan of the Sun Sword wielding barbarian myself, this was a no-brainer to pick up. I only wish I had learned of this book sooner. This is what I imagine an 80’s Saturday morning cartoon produced by Troma Studios would be like and I love it.
