FUTURESHOCK!
by Andrew C.
Publisher: Crushpop Productions
Date Added: 08/28/2020 13:16:38
FUTURESHOCK! These would make a great entry level gaming experience. While simple, I like the points value method of adding to your thrashers. I think that gives it just enough variation that there is some control over your character build, but in the end you still just end up with an attack modifier and a defense modifier. That makes opposed rolls pretty easy. Once everyone gets the hang of the basics, the system pretty quickly and easily allows for a more complex level of play, and makes house rules easy enough to add without breaking the delicate balance of the rules. ...

Heroic Maps - Storeys: Down The Well Good: Great set of maps. Really love the multi-level. Big enough for a complete adventure. One that that I would liked to have seen in the PDF was the image on the product page showing how the levels are connected.

Caves of the Kobold Slave-Masters

Publisher: Ganesha Games

Caves of the Kobold Slave-Masters I just finished playing all three chapters of Caves of the Kobold Slave-Masters, and here's what I thought of it... It's actually a really good sampler of applying the 4AD rules to different play styles. The first chapter uses a pregenerated map and introduces the idea of using the random charts with already created maps. After playing Chapter One, a player should have no problem dusting off old maps and using them with 4AD. The second chapter plays just like the default style presented in the Core Book. The third chapter goes a bit abstract, with almost no map at all and larger parties of characters. The third chapter was actually the most challenging of the three, as keeping track of the four PCs, the eight NPCs and the eighteen demons was made more complex by the demons all having a poison attack. I made a tracking sheet before tackling the third chapter that listed cleric abilities, spells, holy water, scrolls and bandages, as well as hit points. It helped immensely. I...

CounterFact Issue 8
by Heretica A.
Publisher: One Small Step
Date Added: 08/21/2020 15:09:51
CounterFact Issue 8 This was first time buying this magazine, and I was attracted by the game included and it's strange premise. In it, designer Ty Bomba takes the idea that Bulgaria allies itself with the USSR in 1941, setting off a 2nd Winter War, this time between the USSR and Nazi Germany. A bit of a stretch but the idea intrigued me. The game itself is an odd duck, it uses a chit pull mechanic which separates movement from combat for each nation, randomly drawn from a cup. For example you may draw the activation chit for Rumanian Combat which is great if those forces are already in contact with the enemy, because you dont get to move those troops on the same activation. Given the small combat power of most of the nations on the board...this makes most of them useless in anything other than defence or possibly making sneaky attacks against undefended objectives. Not all that useful in a game where the Nazis and Soviets are roaming the board. The Nazis have an enormous advantage in that they ...

Starport Precinct Map Kit

Starport Precinct Map Kit So I wasn't 100% clear what this was before I bought it, but I'm really glad I got it. I was thinking "precinct" as in the area around a starport. This is a literal police precinct (or, I suppose, security precinct) for what would probably be a ground-based starport. The scale is 2m x 2m squares, slightly larger than the Traveller standard of 1.5 m squares. Descriptions are flexible, and imagine the same installation/maps being used at various tech levels (i.e. the "combat simulator" is imagined from high-tech to basically no-tech). The flexibility give this thing some extra re-usability. That said, it would be a shame to use it only once, given all the thought has gone into it. I imagine using it as the central location for a kind of Hill Street Blues spun up in a sci-fi setting....

10,000 Random Rolls [BUNDLE]
by Conrad T.
Publisher: Games 4 Geeks
Date Added: 08/19/2020 05:47:38
10,000 Random Rolls [BUNDLE] It does exactly what it says in the description: provides a bunch of random rolls. This is great, I can use it while travelling on a coach without worrying about a bend meaning the dice go flying down the aisle. I can also see it being good for not tipping the players off you're making rolls if you use a GM screen.

Nightwatch: Terror and Treasure in the Dark Corners of the World

Publisher: P. Todoroff CCWC

Nightwatch: Terror and Treasure in the Dark Corners of the World Big fan of patricks previous titles, but was honestly a little dissapointed with Nightwatch. its just too abstract in some areas with a few limitations that dont really fit, a turn limit for example has no place in a coop game with a plot, by all means crank the difficulty up the longer it takes but failing a campaign because of something so forced is not good. The dice system used is actually pretty good, with player characters having a action pool of 3 with 3 dice (D6,D8 and D10) usable on whichever action they like against a target number of 4 with modifiers. If the action is one the character class is skilled in they roll 2 of the die and take the highest result. Equipment is sadly very basic, even more so than similar games (Rangers of Shadow Deep, 5 leagues from the Borderlands) and aside from ranged weapons granting a ranged attack, typically provide a once per turn ability that are a mixed bag. Polearms for example allow you to attack from further away, but only once pe...

Eindekker

Eindekker I played three days of action last night, and love this game. So much subtle stuff is in the random event charts...fly low, more chance of flak damage, for example. Repairs matter....a lot! Guns always jam at the worst time.....like when you are firing!....After three days, I have shot down two bombers and a fighter, while using Immelmann as my pilot. My plane has no damage, the guns are clean, and it is time to try to finish the week with a string of successes. Any WW1 air enthusiast needs this game. There is a lot of the feel of Von Richtoffen's War or Hostile Aircraft, with athe benefit of solo play, which is so difficult with those games. This game looks to have a load of replay value. I do not believe it would be difficult to rate a few later planes to use in the same system....

Panzerschreck #17

Publisher: Minden Games

Panzerschreck #17 I bought this issue with very deliberate intent. "Der Tag-1916" is a game that I HAD to have. As a solo gamer, one of the hardest things to play is the ability for fleets to hunt and surprise each other. This game held the promise of making that possible. quickly printed, assembled, read and set up, I played a full four turn game last night, and was happily rewarded by the ebb and flow of the action. Weather is a major variable, and hampered the British greatly on most turns. The distannces from Scapa Flow and Dover will keep those forces out of many actions, leaving the German fleet with far better chances of hitting and getting away. Ship design is nicely factored into the gunnery and damage charts, making the British shipd better gun platforms, but far less able to take damage. On the last turn, the action cards sent out the German fleet, which met a small portion of the Royal Navy, did some serious damage, and left before the main fleet could arrive. The Germans won ...

Wars of Marcus Aurelius

Wars of Marcus Aurelius OK I have the same gripes for lack of A4 sizes that I have with all games files However, I think Jean has a lousy printer shop too I do the map at my copy shop on a single sheet, cost about 5 euros. Counters fit onto A4 no problem The cards I did "to fit" and this was no problem as they come out about 90% size which is fine by me, I do fronts and backs separately as a life of pnp gaming it's the only way to go, gluing your own backs to fronts. Rulebook is not size dependent either, to be honest I go B/W to save cash here The game as Jean rightly says is fantastic. Shop around and get a quote before you do printing. I live in Sicily, hardly a metropolis in my little town, but my Copy shop does me good, and I suppose I paid about 20 euros, it was a block printing and prices get lower the more stuff you print in my experience. But common you guys WE WANT A4!! ...

12 Temples & Tombs Map Set
by Clay B.
Publisher: Stainless Steel Dragon
Date Added: 08/10/2020 17:19:59
12 Temples & Tombs Map Set These maps are dated. There are only GM versions of the maps (no monsterless or #less versions), and they don't have a scale or grids. You could copy a map from the pdf, paste it into paint, and then save it as a jpeg if you wanted to modify it. See Oone's map series for the correct way to do maps. However, the product is not all bad. The maps can inspire ideas and can be edited (although editing is a pain in this case).
