Reviews for Zweihander
Zweihander has managed to do what so many retro-inspired RPGs currently fail at - it both intimately captures the spirit of a certain type of fantasy (in Zweihander’s case, the blood-soaked and mud-drenched “dark fantasy” genre) and escapes from its mechanical and social shortcomings.
- Adam Koebel, co-creator of Dungeon World
This book is huge. 600+ pages of grim dark fantasy is an absolute delight to behold...but the beauty of this game is it's deceptive simplicity.

Zweihander has managed to do what so many retro-inspired RPGs currently fail at - it both intimately captures the spirit of a certain type of fantasy (in Zweihander’s case, the blood-soaked and mud-drenched “dark fantasy” genre) and escapes from its mechanical and social shortcomings. Too often, games inspired by what came before forget that this hobby has grown and changed, and hew too close to outmoded tropes and bad design. Zweihander manages by the grim machinations of its creator, Daniel D. Fox, to forge itself into something both eerily familiar and utterly belonging to the current moment in games. The diverse and beautiful art, the modern and purposeful writing and the powerful sense that this game is a game made not only to pay homage to what came before but to make something new of it all elevate Zweihander above every other retro-clone and nostalgia renaissance game out there. If I want a game about gritty losers trying to make it in a world out to get them, I’m going to reach for Zweihander every time. (Adam Koebel, co-creator of Dungeon World)
