Cute idea, with nice super-simple rules and very limited choices before house rules are added.

As has been noted elsewhere, the folds don't make sense across the last "4" pages, as its all really one page. (I believe that's what the other reviewer meant about pages not making sense)

I was less disappointed with the mechanics than I worried I might be, but haven't actually played it, just read it. For a free, essentially 2-page game meant for quick silly VRPG style gaming, it's fine!

Literally one page of vague ideas, no actual rules and not even a whiff of fluff. Replete with typos despite its brevity.

While I would love to see the concept of mashing up old CCGs into something bizarre and goofy-fun expanded into something you could actually enjoy, this is not it.

I'm pretty sold on the potential of this [by its own admission] ridiculously simple yet ingenuously malleable/interpretable generative abilities.

I do wish I'd just picked up the GME, will likely just couple with other systems (Savage Worlds/HeroQuest most likely) but the full rules seem like they'd be fine. (confession: I only glossed over these sections) The one innovation I noticed in passing was the initiative-less combat system, though I didn't read how it works.

I have also noticed one glaring editing/printing error: the Event Focus table printed in the back of the book for convenience/printing does not match the one presented in the Randomness chapter, I presume as an artifact of an earlier edition.

Other than these small gripes, it's a clear, concise read with some not-so terrible (though arguably not-so-great and clearly over-sexed male audience skewed) art and a stupefyingly simple but great means for progressively generating a world and adventures!
