    With due respect to patrick todoroff author of the book (Which I think is amazing by itself) Could not think of anything but infinity. I know infinity has his own scenarios like zombies and other black ops stuff, but this one has great ideas and is well written, I already ordered the book and will adapt some mechanics to a game of infinity to see how things work. Cheers!

    Hello there. I just bought the book and I'm about to release a review video of the game.

    I would slightly disagree.

    First zone alfa is designedto be a narrative game. It's not meant to be balanced and certainly not competitive. GmG actually showed that some rules need to be house rules (and I agree with that) which is fine with a sandbox game meant to be used for narrative games imo.

    Also there are not many rules regarding SF stuff. You could use it to play in Ariadna I guess.

    Actually the only link I can see is that Ariadna miniatures are great to play this game.

    All this being only my humble opinion.

    Yes, they are

    Edit: I thought about adapting the Infinity rules for ZA too.

    Hi Marduck, yes, narrative, house rules? of course! The sci fi stuff is in infinity, I do not want to play competitive, infinity can bring balance to the table and give a short campaign a LOT of flavor, I already made my merc crazy list with Wild Bill proxied by a cowboy dr octopus heroclix mini.
