This is a beautifully quirky little product that will work ideally with the more humorous sci-fi RPGs like Red Dwarf, Bulldogs, Floating Vagabond, TFOS, Star Riders, etc (the art style would seem to suit these better). Having been primed by the free ship a little while back I was waiting for this to appear and it doesn't disappoint- 12 small small spacecraft to act as shuttles, runabouts or small transports for the spacefarer on a budget, each full of their own individual "character". The "Introduction and Buyer's Guide"is every bit as useful as the deckplans and could lead to a roleplaying session or two by itself. I shall be looking for more products along the same lines, hopefully a larger ship or sci-fi geomorph tiles. Highly recommended....
I'm really having a lot of fun with this set of rules! It uses the Song of Blades and Heroes idea of Quality and Combat to great effect. It is a simple and fun alternative to most other rules dealing with naval warfare. It even has sea monsters!! The included campaign system feels a bit tacked on but the game itself is solid. Anyone who has played one or more of Ganesha Games rule sets will be able to play this game in no time. One thing I plan to change is a rule that if a successful attack is made but the die roll is odd, no damage is suffered. When we first played the game I missed that rule and we had a blast. When my mistake was pointed out to me by a fellow gamer, we then played with the rules as they were written. It was frustrating to line up a perfect raking full broadside on a ship and have it hit the target and have it bounce due to the die roll being an odd number. In most SoBaH rules the odd roll hits but has a different effect than an even rolled hit. I think I'll either ...
While the presentation is excellent, great art and graphic design throughout, the system is not the Apocalypse World Engine. I think the publisher should fix that. I mean, I'm not totally disappointed, but this isn't what I thought it was going to be. The book was listed as Deal of the Day and time was almost out so I bought it based on the cover and the system it is billed as using.

the Hero system, or champions as I knew it way back when is still the best stand alone super hero system around. providing you have the tenacity to pore through every tweak to maximize your damage output. you can make just about any kind of hero you want if you work at it.
This is a must have model for any rpg scenarios containing ships. If you already have WWG's Maiden or Fat dragon's Cog then you must get this as a smaller opponent to them. Dave has given you several different layers and I have built 4 different versions so far. I plan to allow my pc's to steal one of these in order to assault either of the larger ships I mentioned above and then use 3 more of these for npc's to assault the pc's once they capture either of the larger ships. These will fit in both my pirate and middle age fantasy campaigns. Hats off to Dave and 5 stars for his best ship to date....
This is a really nice little product. I already have the Rooms and Corridors sets and this is an excellent addition, a small grungy spaceship ideal for the Firefly, Bulldogs! or Red Dwarf RPGs. Just one thing, where's the fresher? I suppose I can just pee out of the airlock...
Okum is pulling out minis at an incredible speed! This set is very good, as the others before. I am particularly impressed by the details he always manage to include in every figure. Savage tales of survival popped out in my mind simply looking at them! Also the ruins are very handy for impromptu kitchen-table fights. In addition, remember that all the earnings from this set will be given to help Jim Ward (one of the "fathers" of D&D) to pay medical expenses.
Another great paper minis set by Okumarts. Even greater because it is unexpected, very useful for its setting and especially for its charitable purposes.
Twelve gorgeous paper minis ( as usual ), with a choice of colors and cardboard terrain and tiles as a bonus. What more could you want? ;-D
Other "Armageddon Outta Here" sets ( mutants, Mad Max style cops ... ) :-D
Another great product by Fat Dragon Games. How do they do it every time. This latest kickstarter product is great. They listen to feedback from people and add what people want . Who does that now a days. Even the big games out there rarely change anything because of feedback. This can be used as a stand alone as it includes the floor tiles so that you have a nice presentation for your gang of eager adventures to work on. Sometimes just the presentation when you first see the setup is enough to inspire you to greatness ....
As an old star fleet battles player ,I got this to try out before I dove back into the full rules. Does a great job of breaking down and leaving bits of the rules out to get started in each little learning scenario. They did an awesome job with the scenarios.

The Crypt is an awesome set of maps! They are well done and offer plenty of horror gaming opportunities! These are great maps at great prices with both PDF's for table top gaming and digital maps for VTT (Virtual Table Top) online gaming. If need be you can also print the poster maps out instead of the individual tiles, but you would need to find the right size to keep it to scale.
