Invaderz

INVADERZ is a silly and fun "beer and pretzels" game where Invaderz from the Jerkian Empire try to conquer Earth for the amusement of their leaders, or die trying which the leaders find just as entertaining.

Overall Impression: Having bought several other products from this author, I had uniformly high expectations which were easily met.

Artwork: plentiful and suitable to the theme and tone, the 8-bit retro style artwork was a great choice.

Mechanics: Appropriate to a game about blowing stuff up for fun and profit of the Empire. Characters are not overly complex, and the mechanics support the silly gameplay style perfectly. Not hard to create characters or run the adventures part itself, and very approachably done. This game is not for rules-lawyers, since it encourages "just wing it" play style.

Writing: With tongue firmly in cheek, Grim sets the style from page 1 and doesn't let up. Even the legal disclaimer is not left unscathed, and the dedication really gives you an idea of how to GM this game. I laughed out loud several times just on my initial read-through, and was immediately able to scheme up several fun adventures.

Setting: Today Earth invaded by wacky and occasionally-malfunctioning alien high technology. Easy to design adventures and add-ons for.

Summary: just buy this already. If the writers of the movie SPACED INVADERS had played this first, that would have been a much more fun movie. Fans of alien invasion cartoons will read this and have flashbacks to quotes and scenes from those cartoons. Wish I could rate this higher.

A handy condensed version of the SRD spells. The included spell text was concise and contained all of the information needed to save flipping through the player guide. Just choose your spells, lay them out, and go. For clerics, you may want to mark which spells were chosen for your domain spell directly on the card, to remember which ones you cannot spontaneously cast as heals.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: The licensing allows for you to share with your entire party, up to 8 other players. Also includes blanks to allow you to add any other spells you want to keep track of.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: It was hard for me to get the front and back of the cards to match up on my printer. Despite following the included and clear directions and several tries, I never got it quite right, but as far as I can tell it was my printer, not the product. Other people's printers may have better luck.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

Ah, the printer issue. If your printer settings are correct, the most likely cause for misalignments is Acrobat Reader - if you're using version 6. (Personally, I'm still using v5, which works like a charm. No issues with v7 have been reported thus far). Another thing that should be avoided is duplex printing, if your printer is capable of that. Solution: print front and back separately. Hope that helped!
