Under the Sundered Moon Redux Deluxe
Publisher: Peryton Publishing
by Paul I. [Verified Purchaser]

Most excellent! Tom's ripe imagination draws us into the classic tale of the Time Machine, T&T-style! Plenty of background detail and story elements to give it structure, yet plenty of room for a GM to mold this into his own unique adventure, or even a campaign. Anyone familiar with the original tale will feel right at home, and if not, no fear, there is still fun aplenty. Five stars for bringing a steam-punk sci-fi classic to T&T7.5, and for providing a platform for exploring the underrated Citizen character type.

Chronicles of Blood - Solo War Game
Publisher: Crystal Star Games
by Paul I. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/11/2011 16:50:52
After downloading and reading the rules I gave it a go. Good fun, but I think it needs a bit of tweaking and polishing, or perhaps I just need to 'house rule' my games.

After playing a few times, I felt the movement rates are too low or, alternately, the game is a few turns too short. Most times no combat happened until turn 3, and with only 5 turns in a game that doesn't leave much time for action. The combat system could use a little massage in the damage department, I found it quite frustrating when my cavalry scored a tremedous hit due to the charge special rule, a hit which resulted in no damage. Archery was not very effective either, mostly due the damage rolls. Perhaps a one point damage minimum for a hit is in order, or perhaps damage bonuses for the special talents at least. I echo the feeling of another reviewer who stated that enemy activation can be touchy if the higher point units are behind the lower point units due to random deployment. The short length of the game combined with low movement rates makes those high point units near useless until the last turn if they are in the second line. I enjoyed the random event rule, kept things a bit unpredictable, and the morale checks can be devastatingly wonderful if many 1s are rolled.

Overall a good game, potentially a very good game. I look forward to checking out the expansions, particularly the ones that add special fighters and allow one to create their own army lists. Core rules for free, expansions for a buck, how could a solo wargamer not give this one a try? If you like to solo wargame, you must download this one now. If you've never played a wargame solo before, this is DEFINITELY a good place for a beginner to start, so again, download now!

¡Uncle Cucuy's Lucha Libre!
Publisher: Fabled Worlds

A quick to learn, fun little game, great for a diversion or for a full campaign. I'm not a fan of wrestling, but you don't need to be to have fun with this one. Definitely family friendly, simple enough for kids to learn quickly, and with Nacho Libre on the TV and bowls of chips, this would make for a great Friday fun night with the kids. I also see this as an easily adaptable system, with a little tweaking probably usable with all sorts of 'ring' style combat sports.

Grumlahk's Troll Tales
Publisher: Fabled Worlds
by Paul I. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/01/2010 16:10:15
Lots of fun, Jeff 'Grumlahk' Freels' artwork is clearly inspired by the likes of Jeff Smith, Drew Hayes, and Phil Foglio. The first few tales are excellently rendered wordless tales, told so well you won't miss the lack of text. Followed up by a collection of text-included stories, Jeff displays his talent as writer and artist. This collection of sequential art is a must have for fans of Tunnels & Trolls and fantasy comics. Five Stars!
