Golgo Island is a fast-paced Pulp/Mulp game built around the WarEngine
system (previously incarnated in ShockForce and GWAR: Rumble in
Antarctica by DemonBlade games) aimed at bringing all kind of
over-the-top action focusing on Pulp or B-Movies heroes to your tabletop
for fast-paced, tongue in the cheek games.

Gangsters, kung-fu, sci-fi, horror… - any genre that involves heroes
rivaling in unbelievable feats against hordes of helpless villains or
apparently undefeatable adversity can be played in the loose and
convenient setting of a lost, out of time island where everything is
possible and any approximation will be forgiven . As it that can do more
can do less, the rules can be used for a melting pot of the above or any
of them specifically, so the Golgo Island rules can be used for anything
from the ever popular zombie games to treasure hunting among many other

Golgo Island offers fast and intuitive play, alternate unit activation,
game balance guided by a point system, and completely adaptable
scenarios and game conditions that require neither an umpire, a game
master, or even charts to look up – all you need is a copy of these
rules, a handful of miniatures, some six-sided dice (D6’s), a tape
measure and a roughly 3’ x 3’ playing area. Thanks to simple yet dynamic
game mechanics, heroes and henchmen face player and non-player opponents
as well as (more or less) random events in non-stop action and
pass-me-the-pop-corn atmosphere. The amount of details and non-player
intervention can be tailored out depending on your scenario’s
requirements and the number of players involved, so while the game is
best played with up to 4 players you can easily enjoy it with many more
of them on board!

* The compiled WarEngine and Golgo Island rules.
* Background on Golgo Island and its denizens.

characterful profiles.
* 7 scenarios, and scenario special rules and guidelines to help you
adapt them to your needs and imagination.
… and more!
