1 Hour Play

 Last time I mentioned I would be looking at the game systems planned for The Ion Age and I am as usual true to my word!

This is a short posting to introduce to you the 1 Hour Play idea and what it means for us.  Those of you who know about the USEME series of titles from will know that they use a very simple and robust D6 mechanic for skirmishes and battles across all kinds of genres and scales.  1 Hour Play is going to be an evolution of this but themed to The Ion Age and the conflicts going on there.

We have top secret plans for several titles in the series and each will be available in both a printed format and also a purpose designed download format.  The mechanic of the game engine will be an eight sided dice and of course the titles will keep to the releases made in the 15mm Ion Age range primarily.

So a full paced and fun wargame in one hour or less.  That is the goal.  I will be writing the majority of the content for 1 Hour Play as I did with USEME.

Expect to hear more soon enough about the first title in the series...Patrol Angis.


May 2019 and The Ion Age has been taken back into Alternative Armies.  It continues with new releases into the future!  Go to Alternative Armies for Ion Age pages of the 15mm Range the 15mm Terrain Range the 28mm Range the Publications range and the Free Downloads collection too for the latest.  All links to the ion age site are now defunct sorry!  If you wish to see something or ask a question email me on  GBS
