Panzerfäuste G2 Issue Two

Publisher: Hysterical Games

Panzerfäuste G2 Issue Two Great read, lots of good short articles about different parts of Panzerfaüste, including a scenario, a Batrep, terrain-building, modifying models to create new units, insights as to how pzf 2.0 came about, and more details about background fluff and game rule updates. What is not to like?

A Call to Arms: Star Fleet, Book One, Revision Two, Deluxe Edition
by Byron S.
Publisher: Amarillo Design Bureau
Date Added: 05/05/2016 02:44:08
A Call to Arms: Star Fleet, Book One, Revision Two, Deluxe Edition The book is very thorough in it's explanation of the rules. There's a lot of attention paid to detail. However, the rules themselves are not what I wanted from the Call to Arms series. This edition makes the rules a lot closer to Star Fleet Battles or Federation Commander in terms of complexity, detail, and resolution time. What I like about the Call to Arms series of games is that they are faster and can therefore support larger engagements. What I was hoping for was Amarillo Design Bureau to go into the rules set up initially by Mongoose and to tighten them up with balance tweaks, examples and rule clarifications. The rules that I got I didn't recognize as being from the same system. If you are like me and wanted an airtight update to the Call to Arms ruleset for Star Trek that maintained the low complexity and rapid tempo of the previous games in the series, this book is not that. If you are looking for a detailed space ship wargame that can support larger fleets than Starflee...

Tribal - skirmish combat game

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.

Chevauchee. Medieval skirmish campaigns.
by Glen B.
Publisher: Nordic Weasel Games
Date Added: 05/02/2016 13:07:47
Chevauchee. Medieval skirmish campaigns. This is, by far, the worst wargame I have ever read. It relies on randomness in place of any sort of balance, choice or engaging scenarios. Everything, from the number of soldiers in your warband, to their training, equipment and skills (including number of skills) is randomly rolled, with little to no guidelines for balancing. I cannot even fathom playing this game in a pick-up environment (despite the game specifying how to do so), because there is no way of constructing a warband beforehand, or choosing a size for the battle, or even ensuring that the two sides are even loosely evenly matched. Additionally, there are no scenarios with forces provided, so you cannot even use this to enact historical battles. The rules are both overly simple, with either 1 or 6 succeeding at nearly everything, and bogglingly fiddly. Every detail of a weapon combines to create not much difference at all, yet the game requires that you track damage type, reach, and traits for every weapon any soldier c...

Armor Heavy Team / Tacforce II
by Eric S.
Publisher: Wargame Designs 2000
Date Added: 05/01/2016 10:12:29
Armor Heavy Team / Tacforce II This is a pretty complete rules set, and there are a lot of little details in there about all sorts of little things. The 133 pages of rules were very detailed, which I usually like, but a poor font and layout made the PDF very hard to read. I was also kind of disappointed to see only US/USSR units, and nothing modern. No Apache, no BMP-2, no Javelin, nothing it seems that came out after the original TacForce game did (so 80s level). There are also only about 45 vehicles (plus aircraft, helos, AT Guns, and MANPATS) so not a very large selection. The cards aren't easy to put together things, so if you don't have one you will be spending quite a while to make them yourself. I think if the rules were better laid out, and more/modern units were added, the ruleset would appeal to me a lot more than it does. For now it'll go into the "archive" section of my hard drive, but I'll keep an eye out for any significant update for it, as it has a lot of potential....

Panzerfäuste G2 Issue Two Great second e-zine release from Hysterical games. Getting deeper into the game, the background, subtle as well as direct previews of future releases and suggestions for scenarios. The only thing I would like to see added are battle reports but maybe for issue 3.

Table Air Combat: P-38L Lightning
by Gabriele Z.
Publisher: Paper Forge
Date Added: 04/27/2016 14:03:06
Table Air Combat: P-38L Lightning Great little game. Fast and fun to play, it really needs little space both to be played and to store/carry it. A few typos across the various rulebooks (each plane has its own), also some scenarios could gain for a slightly more detailed description; but nothing that can spoil the fun, really. If the game appeals you, get a couple planes now: you won't regret.

Darkfast Classic Fantasy Bonus Set One: Fae is Fowl

Darkfast Classic Fantasy Bonus Set One: Fae is Fowl These figures are up to Okum's usual high standards, though anthropomorphic animals are not really to my taste, at least for standard fantasy role-playing. The fairies are more useful to me; they are full-size (in scale, at least), and since the wings are an optional add-on feature, you can use them as elves if you like. And you literally can't beat the price.

A Call to Arms: Star Fleet, Book One, Revision Two, Deluxe Edition This is a great addition to the Star Fleet Universe allowing quick play of battles involving multiple ships per side with enough chrome to keep the feel of Star Fleet Battles without the complexity of more detailed systems. The deluxe version has more background detail, some painting hints for minitures and few other things over the basic version and worth the extra dollars. Layout is very nice with the only negative being a lack of a consolidated combat table to show dice rolls to hit, damage and explaination of the weapon details without flipping back and forth through the rules. No big detail as we made our own but new players could benefit by having everything at hand for the first few games. Based on the publishers website this should be well supported with future supplements to add more races, ships and probably options/complexity. The system is clean and allows for a lot of house rule options to add more complexity if that is what you are looking for. System is gear...

Forward The Colours!

Date Added: 04/22/2016 20:44:30
Forward The Colours! I'm so happy with "Forward the Colours" I'm here to see if there are more in the series. Can't speak too much on historical accurancy but the one battle I'm studying it seems to be on the money. Speaking of money. Considering the amount of work that appears to have gone into this publication I consider it a bargain at this price. Constructive criticism? A few more gaps in the layout to reduce confusion when looking up OOB's.
