I would like to announce the first open play test of With a Turned Thumb!

With a Turned Thumb is a 28mm skirmish game with an innovative combat system and easy-to-learn rules, pitching players into the heart of the Ancient Roman arena. I've put a good few months work into the rules and have run a few small tests with a local club, and now I'm opening up to you guys to put it through the wringer.

I've decided to theme the play test around a massive triumphal program to celebrate the birthday of the heroic Roman general Germanicus. As the man who tamed Germania and added Cappadocia to the Empire, Caesar has deemed him worthy of a mighty spectacle.

Each game you play will be commemorating the birth of this Roman hero. So grab some 28mm gladiators and something to use as an arena and dive right in.

Find a copy of the rules here (http://www.mediafire.com/file/2y61le58u3cu1d5/WITH%20A%20TURNED%20THUMB%20PLAYTEST.pdf).

When you've played your game, head to the link here (https://goo.gl/forms/y5zGP7RgYTJe0RBy1) and fill out the short survey to give your feedback.

If you've got any other questions or issues, don't hesitate to contact me through the website (https://wanderer.productions/) or through any of the company's social media.
