Hey all, I've tried posting this in the recommendations forums, didn't get much of a response. Anyhow, the game involves character creation, dice rolling, and equipping cards. Combat is the main aspect of the game. Being the first player or team to achieve the victory standards for the chosen match wins the game. Various match types include: Headquarters, capture the flag, last man standing, specific weapons, etc. A more in depth Frag if you will. It's got a lot of weapons, gadgets, printable 3D terrain (so even if you don't like the game much you have a handful of free terrain ) etc.

The game is aimed at if you were to make one character and everyone fights each other with their single guy, but honestly, it would work the same if you wanted to make a few characters and go team vs team. It's more of a skirmish than all out war.

Anyway, I really just want some more input on it. Only seems to have 2 guys who are really excited about it. Trying to broaden it's fan base I reckon.

Anyhow, it's like 7 mb download, with everything you need to play (minus minis, d6s, and a tape measure.) then you can DL each type or terrain you want.

(Edited in a attempt to avoid those who read too deeply.)

This sounds deeply unpleasant.

yeah, you should be careful when using the term "literally". It LITERALLY means you really and truly will do what you say.

I may enjoy wining a game, but not if I literally have to punch my opponents until they actually sh*t their pants.

Uh, thanks for being a dictionary? So I'll take that word out and maybe see some real input?

You're being a pedantic ass about his word choice and *he* needs a sense of humor?

I won't pretend English is a pristine and unsoiled entity, but the degradation of a word as specific and functional as "literally" is especially painful, and will always catch my attention. Good and effective use of language should be a top priority of any designer (amateur or otherwise) in a hobby as reliant on written instructions as ours is.

With that out of the way, I'm looking through this game and while I may not get a chance to play it (as I likely won't find other interested parties) I'll provide feedback where able. I like (but don't love) Frag, so I am encouraged by the similarity, though lack of depth would not be among my issues with the game.

I would like to apologize for apparently being without a sense of humor, not even going to try to throw a dog in that fight lol.

Also, I never stated English was something I win at. Going to school for Illustration, not grammar. So you will have to excuse me if spell check didn't catch my eye or my sentence forming isn't to text book standards.

The "ass" has provided some very good and much needed in depth input. So he gets my props there. Also, if he decides to play using GI Joes, I want pics. Empty bedroom covered in obstacles and buildings the size of small dressers sounds awesome lol.
