Pulp Alley 1st game

 Well I was so inspired by the AARs of the Pup Alley games  on the LAF and there forum I had to have a go I got the pdfs of the 2 first books and read and read and looked. so today o gave it aplay test using the Solo rules and ideas  and some of my vast pulp/fantasy collection Dr Zytra ,Psycola, Roman 2  maya and 4 zombies
 lords of light Wolff. Una  Dr Thanos, fear fang the lion and a Badger, I slowly set up and made the plot points and perils (used Zorgals at perils. the scenario was Death trap so Wolff was  in one corner surrounded by enemy nd his company rushed to his rescue
 Dr Zytra and his cronies corned the hero
 Alone he  does not care as he  trusts in his skills and  honour
 the compny rush to his aid making progress in the ruined city
 basic board layout used the Mars attack simple simple and  brilliant
 A winged Maya  dives and  engeages the Hero
 the Zombies shamble off to block the  path of his rescurers (I forgot they only could walk?)
 Pycola goes after them  wanting to pick them off one  by one
 Una stalks the ruins careful of the Zorgals
 Roman take a plot point after 2 attempts (I think i got it right)
 Wolff doges the first Maya but another  dives and   they scuffle
 the Hero batters the winged devil sending it to where it belong
 Dr Thanos shoots down the advancing Zombies but  one  gets to claw and teeth range ( there tough as hell)
 Ro-an eventualy gains the point
 Psycola takes another point after a peril fight
 DR Zytra  take another easy his evil is abound

another falls in his clutches

 Ro-man and psycola  charge Wolff and all hell breaks loose
 Dr Zytra  takes out Fearfang in a single  fight
 Wolff smmahes Ro-man donw as he fends off Psycolas blows
 Una fighting a zombie is jumped by Zytra she manages to dodge and  parry the  blows
 Psycola  and wolf battle it out blows and stikes are blocked and wounds ignored

 At last Dr thanos  destroys the lone zombie and seeks to aid Unas fight against Zytra
 the mastermind is out numbered as Una destroys the zombie
 the Badger  ensures Ro-man will not rise again this day
Wolff and  Psycola still battle on as the game ends, after a count up it was a Draw.

Very impressed and was more than i expected form the game it plays fast and is  easy to pick up the combat system, the cards well I need more practice , the plot points are great perhaps make my won rewards ? , the  profile  stats are  great and thwe wounds and flow of the whole game is very enjoyable. 

I did  as i said use the solo play rules  and they worked fine, me and alec will give this a go as i know we like fun and enjoyment and no book keeping. more will be played and  shown I know. Great game and i recomend to anyone with a collection of miniatures they just want to game with it will work for anything i think, well done Dave and co, and all those AARS i also say go find them and look worth it


  1. I picked up the rules a while back but haven't had a chance to give them try them out yet. I hadn't really considered using the solo rules but after reading this must give them a go!

  2. Nice report. Shall look forward to seeing how you and Alec get on with it when playing. Great miniatures and table as always buddy!
