Game On: Tiny Supers: Minimalist Superhero Roleplaying
“Game On” is a series in which we examine the companies, creators, and games in crowdfunding. We look at the journey, ideas, and concepts the creators wanted to bring to market with their product.”
Tiny Supers is a minimalist four color tabletop superhero roleplaying game. By using the rules in the book players can be able to play superheroes of all types, from paragons and exemplars, to super-science heroes of the future or past, to cosmic guardians defending the far-reaches of the galactic civilizations from untold threats.
The character creation in Tiny Supers is simple, fast and exciting, You can pick your character archetype based on the exciting stories your Game Master is going to tell, you pick a few traits or powers that each grant a single benefit and you’re done! The characters all live inside of what is called the Gallantverse which is a place that is focused on heroic and exciting heroes with a “slight science fiction”
The book Tiny Supers is 5.5 X 8.5 and will is about 150 pages long. It comes with a pair of custom dice that have words on them like “POW!”, “NOOO!”, or “BAM”. The set comes in a soft bag that has a pull cord to close it. The graphics in the book are very well done. And there is lots of information inside of the book that can be used to play superheroes.
The game is simple but not stupid, There are simple, fast, and dynamic rulesets to handle actions and the game uses up to three six sided dice as part of the action resolution. “If you roll a "5" or "6" on a die, your check succeeds. Most checks are made with two dice. However, if you are deemed to have "advantage" on a roll, you gain a third die to roll. If you have disadvantage, you lose a dice (rolling only a single die).” To find out more about Tiny Supers or to view their Kickstarter campaign then please visit the links below to find out more information.
