I can't believe nobody has reviewed this here...

Let me say, this was the game that made me fall in love with roleplaying games again. D&D's 3.x iterations left me cold. I could not love the miniatures & battlemap style of game because I have things like Warhammer 40K for that. Why play miniature game when I want to roleplay?

Gregor Hutton's 3:16 isn't overly melodramatic like some of the narrativist-style games that I love, but it delivers all the setting & inspiration you need in a very slim book. It's perfect to pick up & play hard right away, and you can also see how it can explode into a bigger/dramatic discussion as players offer up various insights into who their characters are through the game mechanics.

Plus, the play's the thing... it's fast for everyone, and good. No horrendous stat-lines to crunch as a gamemaster in order to offer some challenge to your power-mongering players. Dice rolls are simple, and weapon effects are brutal & efficient... which is what you are after in a game about xenos-slaying space marine-types. The game is beautiful in its simplicity, and that simplicity allows you to reinvest mental cycles into the description & the overall narrative.

Some might feel the design is too simple. IMO, it's just right. There's no volumes of source material... Gregor Hutton gives you questions in his description, which you can ask yourself in order to populate your narrative in the way that you & your players' adventures take shape. And the rules evoke that crazy killing machine aspect that you want out of the genre of killer space adventurers.

It's not a tactical wargame cloaked in a shell of roleplaying, even if there's a lot of sneaky stuff that might happen behind the scenes.

Format: Paperback
Compared to other RPGs, this game is practically fun sized. Only a few dice and poker chips are needed, and the character sheets are small and simple. However, though, the amount of fun this game is far exceeds how easy the game is to learn.

Long story short, the game places the players in the armored boots of a squadron of space marines, who explore a randomly-generated world full of monsters, controlled by a GM.

The game is also funsized in that it's very, very short--only two or three hours tops. So the length isn't something to scare people away.
