I bet I have more than 50 button men in a drawer. Today I found them and would love to play again. Can anyone help me?

Is there a place where all of the button men are compiled with their special abilities? Any help of any kind would be appreciated.

The old official Beat People Up site can still be accessed at:

http://www.cheapass.com/bpu/

That has rules and stats for nearly all of them.

I will need to catalog what I have. What are you trying to trade for?

You can answer by private message if you'd like.

The buttonmen are listed here, by set:
http://www.buttonmen.dhs.org/~bm/menu.fcgi?cmd=displaybm

All the skills are listed here:
http://www.buttonmen.dhs.org/~bm/html/skills/

Note that these pages are for the online version, where there are more buttons, and more skills. "Chaotic", for example, is a skill only used in the online version.

I have not played online. I did signup today.

That is a great site. Since each button has a page, I wonder if I could print out the page of the ones I don't have to play with them here at home?

Unfortunately that ends with Diceland. Since then another 58 official buttons have been published and some of the older buttons are missing on the BPU-Site, too.
Spindisc's site has all but the latest 16 buttons (Two sets and four Promos).

Buttonmen Online has all but three sets and a few Promos that would require new abilities to be coded in.

As far as I know, there is currently no source on the net that has them all. I'll try to compile an up-to-date checklist and put it into the Files Section.

Oh Spindisc! Now there is a name i have not heard in many years.

If anyone is playing online you have to try Cthulhu vs Cthulhu. Its a unique experience and one of Button Men's bests.
