Nice to see one of my favourite rule sets of all time, Full Thrust available for free download.
I really liked the simplicity of Full Thrust and it was a really fun game.
Back in the 1990s I developed a set of Star Trek cards and rules for Full Thrust which were a lot of fun. I ran a fair few participation games at shows around the UK using Star Trek toys from MicroMachines.
Full Thrust is a science fiction strategy wargame written by Jon Tuffley and published by Ground Zero Games of England. It is usually played with miniature figurines representing imaginary starships, although cardboard chits representing the vessels can also be used. Unlike many games, the publishers encourage the use of any miniatures rather than only “official” ones, though Ground Zero Games does also sell an extensive miniature range.
They were first published in 1991 by Ground Zero Games with a second edition published in 1992.
They are available as free download from the GZG website.
Nice to see one of my favourite rule sets of all time, Dirtside II available for free download.
I played Dirtside quite a bit in the 1990s and even put on a display game for it at Salute one year. I much preferred it at the time to the Epic rules which were around. Though when Epic40000 was released I did start playing those rules for a while.
Dirtside II is a rules system for playing combined-arms ground combat with miniatures in a science-fictions setting.
They were first published in 1993 by Ground Zero Games.
They are now available as free download from the GZG website.
