It always surprises me how many science fiction themed tables are present at Salute and 2013 was no exception.
Mecha meets WW2 in West Wind Production’s Secrets of the Third Reich alternative pulp history.
Frothers Unite attended with an eclectic mix of genre-bending games which I included here under sci-fi for lack of a more fitting term.
First off, Return to the Planet of the Apes, where “intrepid astronauts lead the remnants of humanity in a desperate battle against a gorilla army in the ruins of Washington DC”. Unfortunately I didn’t take a close enough look to spot whether there was a Charlton Heston miniature.
Snits Revenge, a “3D recreation of a classic, humorous game first printed in Dragon magazine. Snits Revenge is a a game involving biology where players defend a Bolotomus from the invading Snits”. I’ve got to hunt down a PDF of the original.
The genuinely disturbing Haunted House of Slaughter. “100 Cannibal Ghost Clowns are determined to devour your soul as you try to escape across the twisted landscapes of horror!”
There were a myriad of other small participation games in all sorts of scales and styles, snapshots of just a few below.
