Utopia Engine (Video Review)


Utopia Engine is a free print-and-play dice game for one player. You play an old artificer named Isodoros who is attempting to reconstruct the Utopia Engine, a fabled device from the distant past and possibly the only hope for averting the fast approaching Doomsday. You must recover the machine’s six parts from six dangerous regions and assemble the Utopia Engine before the world ends. The game uses simple dice mechanics to simulate searching the wilderness, activating and assembling powerful artifacts, and combat with artifact weapons.

Requires a printed play sheet, two six-sided dice, and a pencil with eraser.

Balkan Blitzkrieg (A Video Review)

two Bucks

Low complexity WW2 war game covering the fascist invasion of the Balkans (Yugoslavia and Greece) 1941.

Players take turns moving their forces and attacking enemy units

The historical imbalance is accounted for by different victory objectives and a tight timetable:

The Fascist player must occupy the enemy cities to win while the Allied player is focused on damaging the various fascist forces.

Whack and Slaughter (A Video Review)

Whack & Slaughter is a fantasy skirmish game, where each player uses one miniature that represents his character on the battlefield. A player may use any miniature he already possesses, as the system allows to configure the character however he wishes.

In Whack & Slaughter your six sided die turns into your character sheet. By buying levels in your traits and painting the pips of the die according to the rules, you determine the strength and weakness of your character.
Even though you roll a pool of up to five dice, usually only the one die with the highest result determines the outcome of your action.
By selecting up to three skills from the skill list there are countless of ways to individualize your character – and make him a deadly force on the battlefield.
