The Mighty Six

This game is a whole lot of fun. I picked this up over the holidays and had the opportunity to ring in the New Year (alright, the day after the new year, but whatevs) by GMing The Mighty Six for my group. I've played a few different superhero games and this one has landed square at the top of my list of favorites.

Character creation is pretty easy, and you're offered an incredibly robust selection of superpowers to choose from. Basically, if you can think of an awesome concept for a hero, you can build that character in Mighty Six. You could easily run anything you'd like, from world shaking titans to noir pulp detectives with little to no special abilities. The art (which is superb and very comic-y) and overall theme the book presents are straight out of classic four-color comics, and there's plenty of humor spread throughout, which is a nice touch.

The game provides a good introductory adventure with some sample characters, but the world building is fairly sparse, relying on player and GM imagination to do the real leg work. Personally, I like this approach as you're not constrained by the game's universe (and I mean, really, it's a supers game. If you can't make stuff up on the fly and have fun doing it, stick to VtM).

There does initially appear to be some crunch to the system, but in reality it's quite simple. Easy to read tables are provided throughout the book and once again in the back, and are invaluable for when you need to calculate massive damage or lifting (with necessary totals running all the way up to The Milky Way - lift with your knees, kids).

The biggest flaw is that there are no bookmarks in the PDF. It's a small complaint though, as there's an index and you can print off necessary pages as you like. Seems like an oversight from a rookie publisher, but considering the rest of the product it's easily forgivable.

I'd honestly recommend this game to anybody, but fans of superhero games and comic books in particular.

I've had a chance to play a few sessions of Mighty-Six with my playgroup, and I must say - I'm in love.

I'm fairly new to the D6 system, but it is fast becoming my favorite. Mighty-Six takes an already great die-system and adds a lot of flavor to it. Combinations for PCs are virtually endless, allowing you to customize the super-hero (or villain) of your dreams. My GM is a particularly clever fellow, and manages to mix humour into the campaign. We've had some pretty hilarious nemesis's (nemeses?) crop up during our routine super-heroing.

My only criticism is that some of the game mechanics require you to pop in and out of the book for reference purposes, but that's pretty common with intricate game-worlds and systems. This criticism is also partly assuaged by the fact that the art is top notch. There are some really clever "side-bar" images that evoke the glory years of 1980's comics books. Definitely made me smile.

I'll post an update once I've gotten the chance to play Mighty-Six some more, but as of now, myself and my group are really pleased with the product. I would highly recommend it, even to people who don't typically play D6. It's pretty easy to pick up.

Thanks Dave H! I\'m really glad you liked it. You must have gotten your hands on some of the beta test versions we put out for playtesting. We got a lot of really useful feedback from our playtesters and I hope it shows in the new design. I\'m happy some of the humor struck home. We really tried to capture some of the feel of older comics in our art and mock advertisements. Feedback is always welcome! Cheers Paul
