I played over this past weekend with my pathfinder group and we had a great time. The truly simple rules led to us to have a story and combat driven game. It allow me as a gm to go with my gut, make up stats as I needed, but all while keeping the game moving. We did not have to have complex story lines, worry about what skill would have to be used, or have to use time to look up classes or spells.

I will admit that it is a challenge to write a game for this. But it is a fun challenge.

I dont know how comments like "the pages are messed up" get written. The front quarter sized pages are for the players, the back half sized pages are for the GM. I think the game was laid out great. The less my players had to

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!

+Very creative! I like the idea behind it. -Slightly odd to fold.

Fine freebie, but the printing layout seems a little problematic to me (the pages do not match once folded).

Interesting. I've printed Handheld on a few different printers without that problem. If your printer has a slight vertical offset (e.g. it prints everything down half an inch, like my old one used to), that is one thing that could cause this problem. I remember having a very difficult time printing CD labels for that reason as well. If you can get access to a different printer, you might be able to get a few copies that line up properly. Perhaps a Kinkos or OfficeMax?
