The GameMaster's Apprentice: Sci Fi
by Darrell C.
Publisher: Larcenous Designs, LLC
Date Added: 01/16/2019 10:33:11
The GameMaster's Apprentice: Sci Fi This is exactly what I was looking for in order to play Classic Traveller/Cepheus Engine solitaire. I purchased the printed cards as well as the pdf. The printed cards are printed just like playing cards, and the print quality is excellent. Each card is double-sided and easy to read. The color scheme used for the SciFi cards works well for me. The included SciFi Adventure Guide is also very helpful with ideas on how to use the various elements of the card. The examples included in the adventure guide work well on their own, but can be easily modified to fit your needs. The pdf quality is also good; however, I did not want to print and cut out the cards. Self-printing can be done if a person does not want to purchase the printed cards, but I prefer commercially printed cards to doing it myself on cardstock. I'm using the SciFi cards in conjunction with Paul Elliott's SOLO for Cepheus Engine. The combination of the cards with Paul Elliott's SOLO has created an exceptional experien...

HEAT: The Space Age of Pro Wrestling Card Game - Prison Pro Wrestling Core Set AS A LOVER OF WRESTLER, THIS GAME GOT MY ATTENTION. PLAYED IT AND WAS A LITTLE CONFUSED AT FIRST BY SOME OF THE WORDING IN THE RULES. AFTER A FEW TRYS THOUGH I FIGURED IT OUT. NOT A BAD GAME, BUT NOT A GREAT ONE EITHER. FOUND THE GAME TO BE FUN AND THE ARTWORK IS GREAT, BUT AFTER PLAYING A FEW TIMES WE FOUND THE GAME TO BE VERY SIMPLE AND EASY TO WIN. GREAT GAME FOR A FAMILY WITH YOUNG BOYS AS THEY WILL LOVE IT! FOR US THOUGH, WE FOUND IT TO BE FUN BUT NOT A GAME TO BE PLAYED REGULARLY. MORE LIKE ONCE AND A WHILE. ...

Dungeon Solitaire: Labyrinth of Souls - Tarot Deck

Dungeon Solitaire: Labyrinth of Souls - Tarot Deck The deck is beautiful and feels nice in the hands. It's the perfect deck to accompy the book Dugeon Solitaire: Labryinth of Souls. When coupled with the book, you have tons of ways to enjoy and play this game! So far, I've played Dugeon Solitaire: Tomb of the Four Kings (Basic Game). Labryinth of Souls (Both Expert and Advanced), The Cartomancy varaition which I found to be amazing! So amazing in fact that it rekindled my love of tarot cards that I had in my youth. I'm glad I still kept all my old books on the subject! Lastly, I am currently playing Campaign Mode in Labryinth of Souls, which in my humble opinion is worth the price of the book and deck combined! My character's name is David the Hop and just upgraded from the Rank of a Fool to a Robber. He also choose to become a Ranger, which will come in handy for those pesky mazes! Each delve that I've done so far is very tense as it should be! I can't say enough good about this game! The future of David the ...

Situation Aspect Cards (for Fate)
by Jim B.
Publisher: Nothing Ventured Games
Date Added: 11/29/2018 14:12:47
Situation Aspect Cards (for Fate) I was a little disappointed in the cards, but maybe that's a matter of mismatched expectations. I was hoping it would be a rich set of situation aspects usable in a variety of settings. Instead, it seems more like a sampler pack - possibly useful as inspiration for creating your own. There are 10 cards for environmental conditions. Most of them cover a scattered handful of specific weather conditions. I'd have used one card for weather, say, "Severe Weather," letting you adapt it to your setting. The other environmental cards offer a small sampling of environmental conditions. Again, they were a little over-specific. For example, instead of having two cards for different ways to have poor visibility, I'd have gone with "Poor Visibility" as one card, leaving you to adapt it for your setting. Your campaign probably has a lot of variety in your locations, but the environmental condition cards would be applicable to only a small subset of them. A better mix, if I had to squeeze a broadl...

Winterhorn
by Michael B.
Publisher: Bully Pulpit Games
Date Added: 11/22/2018 16:31:58
Winterhorn *Winterhorn* is an incredible game that does for LARPs what* Papers Please *did for videogames, making the banality of evil in authoritarian regimes real. You are an interagency working group in an unnamed country loosely based on East Germany (but even western democracies have secret police, the FBI ran COINTELPRO for decades, and in 2003 a British undercover agent had a child with an activist before disappearing.) Your target is Winterhorn, an activist group composed of seven core members with ideals, desires, and weaknesses laid out in the briefing material. Additionally, you have a role as a secret police agent, with a past and an agenda of your own. Over three rounds of thirty minutes each, your secret police squad will select seven options from deck of twelve secret police tactics, ranging in violence from hands-off wiretapping to sending 'patriotic' thugs (off-duty cops) to assault members of Winterhorn. You can also be tricky, setting up front groups to siphon away recrui...

double Decktet
by Daniel R.
Publisher: P.D. Magnus
Date Added: 11/16/2018 15:12:49
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...

It's Not My Fault! (A Fate Accelerated Character & Situation Generator)
by Kris S.
Publisher: Evil Hat Productions, LLC
Date Added: 09/21/2018 13:53:01
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...
