I 100% love this very short formulation of Fate. It keeps basically all the central rules we know and love, adds some gear from the Adversary and Horror toolkits that help make the Big Bads work better, the optional rules are all the best options that have been tried since the original book came out, and even the character sheet has been made cleaner. I still recommend the Fate Core book as a source of great GM advice and an extended discussion of Extras, but in a mere 50-ish pages Fate Condensed gives you some really impressive tools to get your game going.

I appreciated this as a timely update and streamlining to FATE Core. I've been running a lot of FATE this last year, and a number of the clarifications in Condensed were really on-point. It's made me even more excited about digging deeper into FATE as my go-to system. Well done, guys.

If you're a FATE fan, this is worth the purchase. If you're new to FATE but want something a bit more meaty than Accelerated (which I also love), this is a great entry point.

So very well written and to the point, at this point there are no excuses left to get into Fate if you're interested in narrative RPGs at all. The rule alterations all make sense. The rules are clearly worded, very short, to the point. It's a great read for Fate Core veterans as a refresher too.

A story-driven RPG so advanced, it's actually simple. This is Fate the way it should be played. (In fact, this is almost exactly the way I've been playing Fate all along.)

This streamlined, slimmed-down version incorporates refinements to the system that originally appeared in other Fate products and blog posts over the years since Fate Core was published. The entire system has been distilled down to its essential basics, and the end result is powerful.

While experienced Fate players may not 100% agree with all of the design changes--the overly simplified Stress track is a particularly thorny issue--this is a must-have for every Fate player and fan.

Get it, read it, play it. You'll love it.

Very much hoping there will be a paperback version. If it comes out, consider buying a few copies to pass around to new players.

A streamlined version of Fate Core, which adds ideas and mechanics from many Fate-based games that came out after it. I'm looking forward to new Fate games using this updated version. Great job, Evil Hat!

Remember trying to teach Fate Core to new players, skimming past page after page of fluff to get to the next game mechanic that actually mattered? Remember searching for a rule over and over only to find that you are looking for the same 5-10 pages each time? This book is what Fate Core should have always been. No fluff, straitforward and elegant.

To me, this isn't Fate Condensed as much as Fate Core is now Fate Bloated.

Oh, and they fixed stress tracks so I can stop re-explaining the same rule every time a player takes damage and starts to mark the track off incorrectly. That alone justifies this entire release!
