Multi-period comic book heroics on the tabletop – play with whatever’s on your shelf in this quick to pick up skirmish game!
Daniel Mersey’s new game is incredibly quick to pick up and play; it’s the perfect tabletop adventure to fit into your busy lives (or between the big battles you play). The gameplay is akin to an action movie and the (optional) gridded table simplifies movement, ranges, line of sight, and the effects of terrain.
Never Mind the Billhooks is Andy Callan’s concise Wars of the Roses-themed wargame. Pitched at the Big Skirmish/Small Battle level, it combines card driven activation and command with simple D6 based combat to recreate smaller battles of the period.
Created with 28mm figures and a 6′ x 4′ table in mind, it is a versatile system that can be easily modified to suit your own preferred scale and gaming ambitions.
Chris Peers’ Death in the Dark Continent is a set of rules for small scale battles set in sub-Saharan Africa in the late 19th century. This Lite version of the game takes all that’s great about DitDC and condenses it into an easy to digest ‘primer’.
DitDC Lite contains all the necessary rules for playing introductory level DitDC battles and even features three different army lists. The full game focuses on the incredibly diverse gaming options that can be found in Africa, and its incredibly varied tribes and peoples. This Lite version is just a sampling of what’s ahead!
