double Decktet

double Decktet My favorite game system by a mile. I love the structure of the deck, the double suited cards as well as the assymetrical distribution makes for a very unique set of cards. This makes for some very interesting trick taking games but it also works well for area control, it opens up a lot of possibilities. The art work is phenomenal in both decks although I prefer the Capital Deck. I do find myself distracted at times during games looking at the art work, spotting curious little details in the scenes. The Decktet book is a great add on to the decks if you are drawn to the system, it has a lot of information on the deck itself and rules for tons of games. There are a number of good games for the Decktet, some of the more notable ones are Magnate, Jacynth, Emissary, Emu Ranchers. Personal favorites (besides the above) are Adaman, Double Knot and Goblin Market. And there are loads more that I haven't even tried yet!...

double Decktet I’m so impressed how the whole thing hangs together. The art reflects the suits and hints at a story behind the suit mechanisms. There are tools here for designing your own game, story telling elements for RPGs and several fully formed games beyond the expected trick-taking plays.

Facing the Consequences
by Jim B.
Publisher: Sune Nodskou
Date Added: 10/25/2018 23:13:39
Facing the Consequences I like the concept but I find many of the consequences too severe and somewhat uneven. Consider mild consequences. In Fate Accelerated, which is what I use, "mild consequences vanish at the end of the scene, provided you get a chance to rest" (page 22). In Fate Core, "Mild consequences don’t require immediate medical attention. They hurt, and they may present an inconvenience, but they aren’t going to force you into a lot of bed rest" (page 163). I recall someone's rule of thumb that mild consequences need first aid or a brief rest, moderate consequences need a doctor, and severe consequences need an emergency room; I'm not sure that's official, but it seems compatible with the Fate Accelerated and Fate Core descriptions. And yet this deck includes "mild" consequences such as *Lost Some Fingers*, *Cooked Off Ear*, and *Fractured Thigh*. A brief rest or a little first aid isn't going to grow back your fingers, you know? And then among the severe consequences, we find *[1-5] Fin...

Lethal Skies Rules
by Patrick B.
Publisher: Talion Games
Date Added: 10/12/2018 06:29:49
Lethal Skies Rules Lethal Skies is A miniatures game of modern air combat, light-medium in complexity and game play. Overall, it appears to be an initial rules set that needed a healthly amount of Beta-testing before it should have been published. **Key terms:** **Position:** Describes an aircraft’s positions relative to each other, or energy-state during combat (Offensive/Neutral/Defensive). Plays a factor only for Movement and Gunnery. Aircraft are not shot down, instead their Position-level drops until it falls below Defensive and the aircraft is removed from the game. In addition, Status Level is mentioned under the section on Tailing (RED/Yellow/Green) but is never explained. **Pilot Skill:** Ranges from 2 (Rookie) to 5 (Ace). Skill Rating is added to 1d6 skill checks for most every action. **Aircraft Capabilities: **Most Ratings range from 0 to 3+, and are as follows: Firepower/Gunnery, Maneuverability, Speed (Turn, Stall, Max, Afterburner), Hard Points, Countermeasures, Point Costs. Some airc...

It's Not My Fault! (A Fate Accelerated Character & Situation Generator)

It's Not My Fault! (A Fate Accelerated Character & Situation Generator) (These comments apply to this product and to the "Fantastic" add-on.) I have now tried this product out twice: once to introduce a father and daughter as new players to the system, and once at a convention where around seven people wanted to play, some experienced with Fate. For the first group I threw together a simple battle using these cards, justified as part of an arena scenario. We stopped after the battle, but I later saw the father GMing a Fate session of his own. At the convention, we put together a scene where the heroes were being menaced by an evil priest and his Cage of Blood, as I tried to explain the system and use the cards to help people understand their characters. The players took to it quickly; the turning point came when the orc character decided he was going to "interrogate the lute" and spend a fate point to declare that it was capable of speech. We ended up putting on a fantasy death metal concert that led to a demon appearing in the mosh pit while our imp gad...

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Complete Errata Set (RoR, 1st printing)
by Paul H.
Publisher: Paizo
Date Added: 08/18/2018 15:43:58
Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Complete Errata Set (RoR, 1st printing) It is nice to have all the errata and error corrections. but the borders on some of the cards have been cut off center. I think such a large run has more alignment issues as the sheets go through the cutter. When they are off they are off in a series probably due to that whole sheet being misaligned. Fortunately they still have at least -some- border. I would buy it again even with these issues but that is only due to the fact I actually have a plan for some of the errata cards that will end up being replaced. Without that more unique use case I think I would be much unhappier with my purchase....

Combat Patrol South Pacific Action Decks Dear fellow "Sophisticates", I purchased this deck, both sets, and I highly recommend them. There cards have differences, regards morale and hand to hand combat, inherent in the cards as compared to the original Combat Patrol *TM. The cards reflect the nuances of Jungle warfare , reflecting the tenacity of the Japanese soldiers morale and the differences in the environmemt. The Rule set variant is well done. See my review of Combat Patrol *TM, Set A on this site. To be clear, you need a copy of the base rules , and the free Pacific supplement to use the cards. Journey over to Buck Surdus site for more detailed information. On Buck's site you will find a free copy of the rules supplement as well as a free basic version of the rules. The Complete Combat Patrol Rule Book can be purchased as a PDF here or on the sister site. These cards are First Class, in production quality ,thickness and durability. If you are looking for graph free, almost dice free , innovative and speedy game ...

Building An Elder God

Building An Elder God Interesting take on the classic Water Works game of my youth, but my main criticism isn't with the game itself and game play, put what you actually receive for you money. Paying $20 bucks for a game that doesn't not come with printed rules, or in it's own tuck box(as shown on the video and on the products page) is pretty low rent and shameful in my opinion, especially when, the site does not inform the purchaser of this(I'm doing so now for all who may purchase this after me - at least you can make your own informed purchase, and choose not to get this, if for your hard earned cash, all you want is just a stack of printed playing cards. Period.) I contacted support and all they said was most card games do not come with anything else unless otherwise stated. Well, I'd like to know where on the product page this is stated? I cannot find it. Instead they provide you with an image and an instructional video that shows you different. Leading you to beleive, that this is the actual item y...

Light Rail: Downtown Super clean graphics and fun game play. Once I played the main Light Rail game, I ordered the Downtown expansion immediately. I love the card sized rule sheets - makes it extremely handy to carry. Both this and the Downtown expansion fit in one large box. Perfect portable play.
