Goin' on a lion hunt.
Goin to catch a big one.
I'm not afraid.
Look, what's up ahead?

Solid mechanics, nice story and clever use of theme. Also your games thumbnail is great.

I like your writing style and use of theme. It seems unpredictably brutal. Do you have a ballpark figure for the success rate of an "easy" game?

Developer

Not at all unfortunately - neither of us live in positions where gathering playtesters is an easy feat, so we didn't do any and just tried to ballpark eye up the dice mechanics! We love wackier and more 'glass cannon' games though - hit hard and break hard, I suppose. Thanks for your comment!

your use of theme is simply genius

It's clear you spent time rolling the numbers out on this one. I like the use of the vague "list of things that I can use to assist" as an excuse to give our heroes a better chance at survival. And the difficulty ramp is hilariously steep! Ha! Add a d20 for "might as well just lay down right here" action. Haha! Geez, that could lose a game. Fun!

This comment gave us a good giggle - we actually just eyeballed the dice numbers as we didn't have time to roll or playtest! We definitely enjoy more brutal and outrageous games though (party games that make everyone groan and laugh when things go wrong). Glad you liked it! :P Sometimes you just have to lie down and accept RNGesus...

Good one. Sounds like it could be the most goofy fun to actually play of the ones I've read so far.

This looks to be fast to play and fun! I look forward to playing this with my cousins soon. I'll message you regarding how it went.

Well done :)

If you do try it, please let us know how it goes! We didn't have time to playtest it and it's our first game, so we would be fascinated to hear back from you. :D
