The Scrum Club had its second in-person gathering last weekend, and we wanted to make sure we honored our insect conquerors this summer by creating a cicada-inspired, Starship Trooper-influenced game. We dubbed the rules "On the Bounce" after a chapter in the Heinlein novel, and our homebrew system was an excuse to play with a lot of cool mechanics we'd been "collecting" and looking for an opportunity to put into a game.

My blog, Scrum in Miniature, shares some photos from the game and some details on our fun playtest in which Mobile Infantry did their best to battle rampaging space bugs!

Looks like a great time!

This was very cool! Pretty amazing to knock out rules and everything for the game that quickly!

Well done.

Looks and sounds like fun.

I've gotta ask, how do those nukes work?

Love the concept – A true "Bug Hunt"!

So……….. they send in the grunts, when the whole "nuke them from orbit, just to be sure" tactic doesn't work as advertised?
