Q: Why buy Fistful of Lead System over other rules out there?

A:   The Fistful of Lead System is:

    • A D10 Game
    • Simple to Learn 
    • Miniature Agnostic
    • Easy to Customize
    • Infinitely Replayable
This is a system you can try out for as little as $7.00.  Download the Core Rulebook, grab 10 – 12 miniatures, a deck of cards, a tape measure and some d10 dice.  If you hate it, that’s the price of a fancy coffee.  If you love it, then you can buy supplements as your miniatures demand.

 

Q:   Can I use Fistful of Lead for X, Y or Z period(s)?

A:   Sure, why not?  Each book contains all the tools for you to create characters, add/adjust traits, weapons accordingly.

 

Q:   Will you resend me lost .pdf's?  I have a good reason.

There are some genres that are low priority for us.  It’s not that we can’t.  It’s that we don’t have a reason to.  These periods are well covered territory with plenty of different rules to choose from. However, we know that many war gamers have used our Core Rulebook to create games for all of the below, and more.  We invite you to do the same.  We welcome you to join the Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/FistfulofLead/

  • Tank vs. Tank
  • Hard armor sci-fi
  • WWI or WWII

    The Fistful of Lead System is not for everyone.  Rules Lawyers, Stat Mentats, Gamey Gamers and Accountants need not apply. 

    We write rules to create random moments of drama that make everyone cheer, laugh, swear and groan.  The rules are easy to learn.  The quick-draw card-driven mechanics are what create the battlefield friction.  For advanced play add character traits for endless playability.  Each title we offer is a toolkit of scenarios, STATTED UP so that you can create everything you dream of.

    We want you to grab some miniatures you’ve been dying to play with.  Pick a genre, or two, from your collection, find someone to play with and play. Have some fun.  If something comes up, decide with a die.

    We welcome new customers to Wiley Games every day who have played the popular rules. They have become bored.  They seek a haven where gaming is fun and their miniatures are happy.

    Play Wiley Games.  Your miniatures will thank you.
