A Look at Palaeo Diet: Eat or Be Eaten Rules

  1. This sounds very intriguing, I’ll keep an eye out for what you do for it. I’m not really a ‘rules guy’ at all but this does sound interesting, my partner and I always have an eye out for things we can play co-operatives against an AI. Good to hear it uses a sensible modern measurement system as well instead of those funny old inches that GW still inflicts on us πŸ˜‰

    1. I knew someone would have something to say about my preference for inches πŸ˜‰ America (and more importantly, the educational system) has tried in my lifetime to move people to the metric system and we just can’t shake ourselves of inches and feet, I’m afraid. Setting that aside, I’ll certainly share more when I get around to doing some prehistoric gaming. Hopefully it is as fun as it looks πŸ™‚

  2. Nice overview of the game system. It sounds interesting. No one can compete with GW or Warlord for production values but then again, the books are so much more expensive. You could get several different rule sets for the prehistoric age for the price of one GW rule set.
    This is an area that piques my interest. It’s like when folks want to do some obscure conflict no one has heard about. This would be mine, though I would want dinosaurs in the mix somehow, and would require woolly mammoths and saber tooth tigers. I understand this is a back burner project for you, but I’m keenly interested in seeing it develop. πŸ˜€

    1. That is very true about the cost in return for production value, Stew. I don’t mind paying extra for the production value generally but I wasn’t turned off by a lack of production value here either. Its nice to have but definitely not necessary.

      You can definitely mix dinos and woolly mammoths in this system (they would basically play the same in the game depending on what kind of animal they are) so if that appeals to you, then this system could be great for you. I will definitely keep you posted as I get minis and then paint them for this game. Hopefully it is as fun as it looks!

  3. While you wait for the miniatures you want to come, you can always try out the rules using paper models. Find some images, double print, glue on cardboard and away you go!

    Will be interested in seeing your opinion on the Savage Core models, they keep catching my eye.

    1. I hadn’t even considered it but you’re right that I could. I’m planning on playing Fallout for the first time today or tomorrow and depending on how that goes, I may take you up on that πŸ™‚

      I will definitely share my thoughts on the minis once I order them πŸ™‚


  4. Looks interesting. As it happens, the US uses metric as standard for a lot of things in certain fields – just notsomuch in “consumer facing” or “everyday life” aspects.
    it’ll be easy for you to sort, though. Just type “metric tape measure” into Amazon.com and you’ll find no end of dual-measurement measures for $10-15 with prime shipping.
    As for the beasties, also type “Papo animals” anmd “Schleich animals” into Amazon, and rejoice at the many well-detailed, prepainted inexpensive options.
    (particularly, the wooly mammoth, woolly rhino, komodo dragon(s)
    There are also other very decent brands of the same stuff, like Safari, Mojo, etc..
    I’ve got the Wooly Rhino, and several dinos, elephants, rhinos, komodos and other things of the sort that I picked up to eventually be gaming monsters – and at a fraction of the price of any gaming company, including even Reaper.
    And once you start looking at Dinosaurs for the same price as a low-end GW box… well…

    1. That is a good suggestion on the measures! I’ve seen rulers that have both on them and should have realized there was an easy solution to this problem. I have seen others turn toys into miniatures for this game and I’m all for it. Thanks for the links and brand recommendations as well. I will certainly give those a look. While I have to admit that I’ve lost a bit of steam on this game since I posted this, I do think I’ll come back around to it eventually and thanks to your help, it should be easy to jump in with some of these resources you’ve shared so thank you for that! πŸ˜€
