Nuclear Renaissance

In the not too distant future, the once sprawling metropolises of man are now nothing but dust. Wars, over-consumption and the wanton destruction of his own environment has left the earth as a barren rock. Across these trackless wastes, gang fights gang for the possession of scant resources, food and bitter glory. Move fast, stay in cover and watch your back. Outside of your gang is a short life of hardship and starvation followed by a quick, pitiful death.

Nuclear Renaissance

Collecting your gang, playing the game

Nuclear Renaissance is a tabletop skirmish game. The rules are for skirmish campaigns in a post apocalyptic wasteland. Players collect a gang of hardened fighters and souped up vehicles from the customisable range of parts and characters. Its a multiplayer game, so 3 or 4 player games work well in the system as well as the standard 2 player setup. Each player then pits their wits against friend and foe alike in a bid to win the coveted prize, to be the last gang standing.

Why play Nuclear Renaissance?

You have a lot of freedom when making characters. You can start out with anything from one super, uber hero tooled to the nines, or a swarm of maybe 50 stupid goons! Chuck in the transport, bikes, rail cannons and hundreds of skills and abilities and its mayhem all round!

A great deal of research has gone into trying to make the system as realistic as possible without bogging down in mechanics. In the end, it plays quite rapidly and gives players plenty of scope for awesome clashes.

The game stresses combat and vehicles over fire power. Guns in the future wasteland are difficult to maintain and costly. Better to clart a goon on the noggin or run him over with your giant armored truck!
