Hunter Gatherer


From the release:

Our new game, Hunter Gatherer is a prehistoric fantasy skirmish game designed for our (free!) QILS gaming system. It sets 2-4 tribes of 28mm cavemen against each other, dinosaurs, and the world itself in a pitched battle for survival.

Tribes will have to hunt and gather food as well as protect their stores from hungry velociraptors and possibly invading tribes. You will need to balance your tribe’s approach to all these activities and plan for contingencies beyond your control to come out on top. Bashing a few heads with a club, helps too.

The book includes:

•layout for all the phases, including 2D print an play flats for terrain
•a-fold paper minis for cavemen, Neanderthals, dinosaurs, and mammoths

Irrational Number Line Games searches for Buried Treasure

Irrational Number Line Games released Buried Treasure, their new game of finding the X that marks the spot.

Buried Treasure


From the release:

And only you can find it. Well, and maybe those other guys sitting across the table…

Buried Treasure is a 2-5 team fantastical pirate competition to find, excavate, and escape from a perilous desert island with wealth untold.

Even better, it is offered at Wargame Vault under the “pay what you want” system. That’s right. If you think its worth a couple bucks, pay a couple bucks. If you think it should be free, get it free. If you think it is worth $1000, seek professional help.

The game is written for and comes with complete stats for our free QILS game, and has guidelines to covert it to other systems. The end material has a ton of other options so you can get a lot of different play from the scenario, as well as port it to other genres like sci-fi, fantasy, post apoc, or film noir … anywhere where people are fighting over a secret treasure.

Get Infected from Irrational Number Line Games

Irrational Number Line Games didn’t wash their hands enough and is now getting everyone Infected.



From the release:

Infected is a collaborative-competitive adventure for up to six players to control the scientist survivors of a savage disease outbreak on an isolated Antarctic station. The adventure is collaborative because you will have to work together if anyone is to make it to the hangar bay and safety. It is competitive because there is no way everyone will make it out. There is also a victory objective to compete with the other survivors to be the “hero” of the event in the public’s eye, rather than just a survivor.

The major obstacle to getting out is disease-infected former colleagues with a newly acquired taste for blood. These monsters are controlled by a set of behavioural rules, so you can even play the game solo. By trying to maximize hero points and minimize how infected the survivors become, there is good replay solo value as you try to beat your best performance. And in team play, there are rules for eliminated players to take over the monsters … Yeah, thanks guys. I’ll show you my, “Let Dave go in first!” now …

The .pdf comes with the following:

Irrational Number Line Games Releases Psycho Killer

Irrational Number Line Games has released their new one-shot adventure, Psycho Killer.
Qu’est-ce que c’est

Psycho Killer

Irrational Number Line Games is Stranding Aliens on Earth in Various Centuries

Irrational Number Line Games is pleased to release Troll/Chupacabra, their new Sci-Fi/Horror Double Feature scenarios.



From the post:

As if crashing on some backwater world isn’t bad enough, the plants don’t have any bonded iron in them. But the animals do. And if it’s a choice between hunting (barely) sentient beings or stranding me and my bioship here … well, no choice, really …

But this double feature gives you the choice of pitting the alien against a Medieval Scandinavian village or a small town of Mexicans in the 19th Century. And with the variants and extra rules at the end, more options beyond that (like Romanians, Colonial Egyptians, Ancient Desert People, or even Hillbillies).

The 62 page .pdf contains:

• Two main scenarios and four variants
• Twenty pages of print and play terrain pieces to cover all the Scenarios
• Stats for the aliens, villagers, and the hero in our free QILS system
• Guidelines to move the action to the tabletop rules of your choice

Irrational Number Line Games Lost Their Treasure…

Irrational Number Line Games has their The Lost Treasure of Tan Akihr quest adventure tabletop minis game scenario up online for your gaming pleasure.

Lost Treasure


From the release:

The Lost Treasure of Tan Akihr is a basic quest adventure set as a tabletop wargame for three to seven players. The adventure is presented with stats for our Quick Intermediate Level Skirmish game, but is written so it is fairly easy to substitute in forces from just about any game you already happen to play.

The adventure itself is pretty stock in trade – trek out to the abandoned ruin wherein lies a fabled treasure, grab it, and get back. The way the adventure is set up, players will have to cooperate to survive, but ultimately are really in it for themselves. This doesn’t necessarily mean backstabbing (it doesn’t preclude it, either). In playtest, it was usually a better strategy to be the go-to guy whose personal objective was aligned with overall party success, rather the the guy who was obviously out for himself.

The .pdf includes:

Stats for heroes and bad guys
Three and seven encounter plot lines with eighteen variants each
Setups for each encounter including special rules and sample maps
Ten pages of 2D and some simple 3D terrain templates

All that prepped in the background so that the game still plays fast and furious.

Irrational Number Line Games has released Imperium Alieni, their sci-fi/historicals game of overthrowing our alien overlords in ancient times.

From the release:

The last survivors of an alien race have escaped their dying star system and come to Earth. Their advanced technology allowed them to easily establish dominance over the Roman Empire. But with parts wearing out, no infrastructure, and small numbers maintaining power is another thing altogether…

Imperium Alieni puts you in the place of the aliens trying to hold on to power, or the humans who are no longer so much in awe of their alien overlords. Seven scenarios lay out a campaign that begins with some isolated guerilla actions and end in the aftermath of a total revolt. There’s even a little surprise twist in the middle.

The .pdf contains:

Seven scenarios with set up, maps, and victory conditions
A campaign system to link the scenarios
Seven different possible locations for the scenario
Twenty pages of terrain templates to support the different locations
Full stats for our free QILS game, and guidlines for converting to other gaming systems

Perilous Planet is an adventure that crash lands your intrepid Space Patrol team with a crippled ship on to a hostile world. Will they find the materials they need to get off the forsaken rock?
