I read a very comprehensive and extremely well done battlereport of Mayhem using 10mm GW figs on the Lead Adventure Forum. I went ahead and bought the rules. The mechanics are great! Overdrive is a truly innovative mechanism. I also like the ability to create army lists using the army creator availble for the rules. I was highly impressed by everything I had read about the rules and their mechanics. We were wanting these to become our default set. However, the rules as laid out made it extremely difficult to follow how the game should play. They were sometimes confusing and often unclear. I actually thought about trying to edit sections of the rues to make them clear and concise, I decided it would be too much work.

These rules have the potential to be one of the BEST fantasy sets on the market. They really do have some very good ideas, concepts and mechanics. But they badly need to be edited and laid out so they are clearer in their pesentation. I'd have given any other set a 2 star rating. But because of the promise they offer I made it a 3. Clean them up and I'd make it a 5! I truly hope the author thinks about doing a new version. I would happily sing their priases if he cleaned them up.

An excellent tabletop wargame.

Gameflow is superb. The interaction of rules components is very satisfying. The system has an awesome dice mechanic used for almost every aspect of the game, is easy to learn, has huge customization potential, flows incredibly smoothly, models command and control well and gives the player the feeling of really commanding a huge army across an entire battlefield. In less time it takes to play a game of Warhammer, you command what feels like three times as big an army over an entire landscape. I liked it quite a bit.

Mayhem does two things extremely well:

  1. It gives you complete flexibility and creativity in what units you want to field: Creating your army is as much fun as playing the actual game.

  2. And it gives you freedom in what you want your units to do on the table. It doesn't even have separate phases for moving, shooting etc. You can go back to units you already ordered and activate them again, for example, even after activating other units in the meantime. Gives you an very satisfying feeling of being unhindered and unrestricted.

These two things Mayhem does better than any other tabletop wargame I ever played.

Heartily recommended!

Well written, fast and fun! I love games that allow you to "Build your own", and this really gets it right. I use it with my 10mm Warmaster armies, and have always enjoyed it. It is too bad that it is one of the lesser known titles, because it certainly deserves more recognition.

The risk-vs-reward system of using Dice as Attributes is fascinating. The "Roll Low" mechanic is a nice change of pace (how often do you get to crow over rolling a 1?!), and there really isnt a lot to keep track of in the game. I really recommend this title!

i'm looking for a simple mass battles system, with a certain freedom in basing and in definition of units to recycle my Ancient Battles 15mm minis. Mayhem is perfect! not only is a fast&fun system, but in matter of few hours i made 3 army list out of simple conversion of AB units to the new system. Conclusion: it's fast, it's fun, it's flexible, it's simple; who want more? oh, i remember IT'S CHEAP! A five-star hit!

I enjoyed learning this game. It has some very interesting mechanics that add much in the way of field tactics to fantasy gaming. Lots of choices to choose from both in army building and on the battlefield. It does seem odd to roll low but it works. Good price and you are given a lot besides the basic rules for the price. Four documents for the price of one. Thanks for a fun game Brent.
