The Wreck Age Rule Book Covers Up

May 29, 2013 by dracs

Hyacinth Games are gearing up to release the rulebook for their new game of post-apocalyptic survival Wreck Age and have just released a picture of the cover to show the world.

Wreck Age Cover

I am something of a fluff fanatic, eagerly delving through rulebooks of games I don’t even play in order to get to the juicy stories (that’s pretty much how I met BoW, I just sat in the corner of the office reading through their library) and seeing this cover art has got me itching to get my hands on it.

The artwork itself is very good. It captures the style of the world Wreck Age is built around and gives people an idea of what to expect in terms of the game’s atmosphere.

On their forum post Hyacinth have also published a quick contents list so we know what we will be finding in the book itself:
