This looks like a lot of fun without getting too bogged down in rules, or too much down time for the non-phasing player.

Didn't notice it on KS, but retail pre-orders supposed to be starting in the next week or two.




Would definitely want to craft up the wood player blocks to go with the cloth/rubberized playmat. 8-)

Saw the print & play available on DTRPG's daily deal, but would much rather go with the prefab boxed game when it comes out.

I've never really been drawn to (american) football tabletop board games, as the rules just never seemed to be all that enticing on the few I've grokked. Nor have I ever really considered the large investment in Blood Bowl, which is vaguely similar, or any GW minis games for that matter. I'll stick with the PC version of BB, thank you. But this looks like an excellent fit for me. :)

The well-received Sci-Fi Eclipse Phase RPG series has been FREE in PDF format for a few years.



Definitely worth a look/read of the Core Book at the least. 8-)

Has interesting concepts such as 'backing up' your consciousness, and later downloading them into new bodies/droids/etc after your character dies (minus the memories & such since last back-up). But still mostly sci-fi/cyber setting where our AI machines had turned on us in a Super Skynet style space-pocalypse.

Didn't know these were all available until recently. They put the digital versions up for free personal use, under a Creative Commons license. The physical hardback copies are sold, of course.

Some good looking artwork in it. :)

And the nerdfest continues with learning High Frontier 3rd.

Gave the Basic game a run long enough. Habit forming! On to reading Advanced & Solo rules. :ugeek:
