Iron Ivan Games is having themselves a Halloween sale over in their webshop.
And Psycho Killer is playing while I’m typing this up. It seemed appropriate.
From the sales sheet:
In celebration of the impending holiday and the release of Psycho-Slasher: The Game, Iron Ivan Games is having a 20% sale on selected books (does not include PDFs or the Altar of Freedom system) from now through November 8th, 2013. Save money, buy more candy!
Psycho-Slasher: The Game is a 30 page long miniature game homage to the low budget slasher films of the 1970’s and 1980’s, playable in any scale from 15mm to 54mm. Psycho-Slasher is easy to learn, and fun to play, with each player acting as a Writer and running their own Slasher. The competing Slashers don’t interact directly, but the Writers have the ability to hinder or help other Slashers with the placement of new weapons, or, more importantly, manipulating the horde of Pawns that populate the Slasher film tableau.
You say that love the idea, but that you don’t have miniatures for a game like this? No problem! Included with the game are printable paper miniatures… you get 5 distinct Slashers, a Cop, and 4 distinct Pawns. Print as many Pawns and Cops as you need, snip, fold, glue, and you are all set! Also included are printable Weapon counters, and Pawn Special counters that introduce twists to the game like Phones (self-explanatory,) Beer (dangerous for Pawns), and Hysteria (AHHHHH!!!).
Not recommended for children under the age of 16. This is meant to be a fun game, based on a movie genre, and does not take it self seriously… still, the subject matter may not be appropriate for everyone.
Psycho-Slasher: the Game is available in pdf format only.
