Many thanks to all of you, some from this most excellent site, who have decided to play USE ME for your 15mm sci-fi games. Thanks for your support.

I am happy to be able to announce that all the feedback and requests in the last three weeks from players has resulted in a four page, free document of Optional Additional Rules for the game.

Here is a list of all the subjects covered in the free document;

  • What Are Optional Additional Mechanics
  • Close Combat Specialisation
  • Anti-Vehicle Specialisation
  • Psionic Specialisation
  • Characters Firing for Suppression in Play
  • No Additional Mechanic for Firing into Melee
  • Firing Non Lethal Rounds in USE ME
  • Civilians and Random Movement in USE ME
  • Optional Morale System
  • 2D6 Integrated Morale System
