Zam! Pow! Spork!


Zam! Pow! Spork! is a tongue-in-cheek super sidekick game for fast, fun, one-shot scenarios. 

Mechanically inspired by the Lasers & Feelings RPG (created by John Harper), the rules are easy to pick up but versatile enough to handle a wide range of superhero shenanigans. All you need are four 6-sided dice to play! (That's the normal ones...)

Cover and Character Sheet of Zam! Pow! Spork! zine

Players create and control their own super-powered sidekick, on a mission to thwart the schemes of a dastardly Super Villain! It falls to the underdogs to save the day while also managing the fallout of their randomly directed Star Hero.

But this is NOT a serious supers game. Instead, it is reminiscent of the silly superhero cartoons of the 80s and 90s, like The Mask, Freakazoid, Darkwing Duck, and The Tick. Hijinks, bad puns, wacky plots, and absurd superpowers are expected and highly encouraged.

The zine contains:

  • The full rules for creating sidekick characters and playing Zam! Pow! Spork!
  • Random Superpower Mash-Up tables (so every sidekick is totally unique).
  • Mission Generation tables (so there is zero prep for the GM).
  • A three-act story structure (to make games focused and memorable).
  • Guidelines for running the game, creating Super Villains, and more!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
