I've owned a set of Savage Worlds since about 2007... I more recently got the Deluxe in some bundle...

I wonder now why I waited. There is a lot to like in the rules; that they're designed for both RPG play and for Tabletop Minis Wargame play means they're not super heavy. That said, they still allow for a good bit of tactical play.

Is it Fast? Moderately, but this is where it loses a little for me - the initiaitve does keep people tuned in, which is a nicety, but it's also got some handling time issues, especially for the first session.

Is it furious? Yeah. Fights don't drag on, especially when PCs have decent firearms... unless the Toughness is high. Then it can feel a bit whiffy... hits are easy, damage varies from easy to really hard...

Is it fun? For me? Sure is!

A month in, using Deluxe and Deadlands Reloaded (SWEX version), and it's easy to handle the NPCs if using figures or paper minis. (I"m using mini-meeples.) Combat is smooth, and while I've seen faster systems, they don't tend to hold the engagement as well.

Hopefully, it speeds up a bit with more experience. Of the multi-setting games I've tried, none felt right for pulp... and Savage Worlds does.

[4 of 5 Stars!]
