Hello Boys and
For those of you that don't know him,
the main thing to remember about old UnclEvl is that he's an inveterate meddler.
He can't even look at a game without he gets
himself worked up into a froth frenzy about what's 'missing' from the system,
or what 'doesn't work well,' and before you know it, he's off to his shed/laboratory
for a week or three to tinker about with it, or create a deranged
What you have here then is a collection of those tinkerings,
meddlings and otherwise general fiddle-faddlings UnclEvl's cooked up in that
dangerously unstable brain of his – or some other lunatic with a
‘good idea’. Now and again, he does have a gem of an idea. No,
really, ask anyone. Except maybe that strange creature he lives with. She's
unlikely to say he's ever had a decent idea, but thats another story for another day. So browse,
peruse, digest and ruminate; by all means use and abuse and certainly feel
free to comment, suggest and add, should the muse come upon you and a serious
froth take you over.
Careful be though, cos old UnclEvl can be an irascible
old gimmer. With a tongue sharper than a fishwives
filleting knife and the temper of a colour-blind bull, he's not known for his
patience at the best of times, least of all when he's got a full head of
froth up. You don't want to go and get him started off one on of his 'Rants'
now do you.
UnclEvl Originals – original games designed by yer
old Unc, available as pdf
print & play downloads.
Many of these are a
bit of a work in progress - playable but perhaps
requiring a bit of tidying, so please bear that in mind.
Frothy Races 3.6.pdf – chariot / fantasy vehicle racing rules, largely inspired by
Ben Hur and Wacky Races and developed for a FUUKers participation game to hopefully be run at
Salute 2012. Although it
includes some dirty trickery, the gameplay
focuses largely on the tactical race element. This is still a work in progress and
the first draft of the current development version; requiring some tidying
(some of the picture diagrams have not pdf’d
too well) and a summary crib sheet to be added to the back cover.

Play 3.6.pdf – Print & Play for Frothy Races including a board tile;
blank and basic vehicle sheets; vehicle tokens and dice stickers; whip and
reins cards. This is a basic playtest version only – some of the pictures have
not faired too well in conversion to pdf which I will address at a later time once things
Wylde Hunt Rules.pdf – this
‘traditional’ style chess-like 2-player strategy game was
designed to coincide with the Faery themed FUUK sculpting
competition, as a freebie giveaway.
Coming up with a
concept, gameplay, design and testing in 6 months
or so, after the competition theme is announced, is always a challenge, so
for this one we decided to go with a ‘smaller’ game, (as
opposed to the ‘big box’ theme of the previous year’s ‘Asylum’
game). The board and rules are
available as print & play downloads – you’ll need to supply
a few of your own suitable gaming pieces.

Racing.pdf – this game
was originally inspired by a certain popular TV advert put out by a well known beverage company. As such, the game
was designed so that rules and features would fit on the back of a beer
mat. Unfortunately, the said beverage company did not accept unsolicited promotional
ideas – but if you print these out and stick them to beer mats you
can always put them in your pocket for the next time you head down the local
Still to come – I will post up the infamous ‘Iron Man’ co-operative
skirmish rules when I get the chance; and maybe one day I’ll actually
finish the major overhaul of the ‘Asylum’ board game.
