Found some time last week for another game of One Page 40k. God, this game is fantastic. It's everything that I want or of a 40k tabletop experience, and nothing I don't.

Here's the blog post: link

And a few pics from the games. We always put on visually stunning games and this was no exception.

Here's a review from our first game of 1P40K a few months ago.

Great report, thanks.

I'm considering using the rules to get all my 15mm scifi on to the table for a change.

Is the 1p40k rules related to the FUBAR rules?

It's not related to FUBAR although some of the basic mechanics may seem familiar. It is its own proprietary game system. In fact, the folks behind the "One Page Rules" system recently relaunched all of their IP-specific game lines to avoid potential lawsuits. So 1P40K is now called "Grimdark Future" and they've removed all the copyrighted terms while still keeping the core game basically unchanged (even a little improved). More info on that:

PatrickWR, your report mentioned a secret objective. How do you handle that?

I'm looking into the OPR rules and have played a Grimdark Future game. I like the simplicity, but what makes me love a game is usually the stuff that isn't moving/shooting rules. Chain of Command's jump-off points, or the activations of Song of … rules, etc are pretty neat. I've not played Pulp Alley, but the cards and plot points and things like that seem to me to give it its life.

I think some simple things like secret objectives would spice things up. Did you borrow this from something else, or did the 1P40K have it, or is it homebrew? I assume the only tricky parts would be coming up with suitable objectives and making them reward differently by how hard they were to achieve.
