A must have box for a great price.
Rules are simple enough and do a great job at rewarding you for playing/acting out your role well. The Rulebook alone has tons of amazing art and info fleshing out the world.
I wouldn't even consider getting the standard rulebook only. The extras are very much worth it.
Softcover Second Edition Rulebook
4x packs of Conflict/Weapon/Condition Cards
Second Edition Expanded Rulebook (with additional preset scenarios/missions)
2x sets of 10 custom dice
1x pack of Character sheets (double sided with different info on back)
1x pack of GM Sheets (double sided with different info on back)
The play mechanics is different than your typical game. This game has less of a focus on combat and more focused on the storyline. For this game you won't need a full multi-sided dice set, you'll only need six sided dice which makes this a bit more accessible for those who don't own full dice sets. All storylines and information the game master needs is included in the book, which is well organized to help in locating the needed information.
Over all I would recommend this book. It has a unique take on role playing that focuses more on the story than on combat. It's easy to play and offers up creative storylines for anyone who wants to play.
The rules are straight-forward, and developing scenarios as the GM is much easier than in most games.
The players take on the role of Mouse Guardsmen. They have a variety of missions available, and most involved overcoming environmental challenges as well as the machinations of bad non-player characters.
Before each session, each player is encouraged to come up with a mission statement and to cooperate with the other players as they develop their mission statements.
This is a great fifth generation RPG!
