Good stuff, thanks for continuing to post these reports.

I downloaded your rules a month ago and to my shame have’t tried playing through them yet – had a very quick read through.

I hadn’t initially appreciated how fast (30 minutes) they are supposed to be. The rules look pretty comprehensive and I got a feel they might give a longer game, but you can’t tell from a quick read of most sets how long they will actually take. I am looking forward to trying them.

Was this a solo run through? If so did you use the preprogrammed enemy option at all?

I see in a reply you suggested this took c15minutes to play! Is that right? If so was this because of the number of outlier dice throws?

Did you feel okay with 15 minutes as a game? It certainly allows you time to set another game (or two!) up and play again but does it allow immersion?

Not a criticism – just a question. I hate playing three hours and having to pack up and ‘evaluate’ (guess) the outcome but 15 minutes does feel quite fast!
