I picked up the source book for this RPG at a con this weekend for $5. There is precious little info online about it, but it was distributed by Stellar Games in 1987. The book I got has that date. It appears to have hilarious potential in the style of a game like Paranoia. Has anyone heard of it? The only prce I could find was a listing on Amazon for $75, but that was a book from 1990 with different art. I don't know if that is an accurate price or not. Any info would be great! Thanks!

over on the RPG Geek side, both the 1987 1st edition and 1990 second edition are listed
https://rpggeek.com/rpg/1451/expendables-1st-edition

https://rpggeek.com/rpg/1452/expendables-2nd-edition

Neither have any price history though.

One of the supplements is up for $25 US on ebay:

I have it, it's a really interesting premise I'd never seen done before. It's not like Paranoia at all. More like...well, 'The Expendables'!

For $5 it's a good deal. IIRC there's a supplement for it too.

Definitely a different type of sci-fi game. More 'Firefly' than Traveller.

Oh yeah, sorry, I forgot all about RPGGeek. Thanks for the info.

Cauldron, any game where you can have proctology as a skill sounds hilarious to me. I want to try it out. Lol.
