I sat down last week to play a quick game of Wasteman with a friend. I'm still getting the hang of the game, and especially of building syndicates for it, but I'm really enjoying it. I'm pleased with the way my random selections produce games that are swingy but don't resolve early -- and I'm beginning to understand some of the implications of the system. I may be the ideal player for this kind of game, since I have neither the inclination or the ability to "solve" a system, but I'm alert enough to spot some of the basic concepts.
Anyway, here are some photos!
