Providing the best value in role playing and miniatures gaming since 2007
Quick And Easy Games is now pleased to offer “Gordon’s Guide to the Confederation” in PDF format! This is a project that we have worked hard at; consolidating EVERYTHING from the role-playing game, and the novels, into one quick reference. It has maps, timelines, planetary data and inspirational game ideas—all in one 37-page book. It’s the perfect companion to Star Run, the fast moving game of high space adventure. Check out our catalog page for this, and other great stuff by gamers for gamers.
I’ve just discovered something very cool. A group of fans have decided that Star Trek TOS can and should live again as an online series of original episodes. This cast of unpaid professionals really nails it. They have the style and substance of the classic Trek I fell in love with while watching re-runs in the 70′s (yes, I’m that old). For those who just have to see Kirk get his shirt ripped one more time, go to their website at http://www.startreknewvoyages.com/ or look for them on You Tube.
As their website states; Star Trek New Voyages: Phase II is…
… an award-winning independent webseries that produces new episodes of Classic Star Trek. Continuing the fourth and fifth seasons of the original series, we film the untold stories of the U.S.S. Enterprise, Captain Kirk, and his crew with the intention of filling in the missing years of the original five year mission, and bridging the gap to Star Trek: The Motion Picture. We are a group of fans who have come together with a common love for the classic era Star Trek for the purpose of having fun while making new episodes. It is the goal of Star Trek New Voyages: Phase II to support and promote the CBS/Paramount Star Trek franchise by giving fans an active way to continue their interest in Classic Star Trek.
It’s less than three weeks until GameStorm 2014, in Vancouver, WA. It’s running from March 20th to 23rd at the Vancouver Hilton. There are over 700 scheduled gaming events and I plan on adding just one more. I have finished a set of rules for HO scale science fiction soldiers made by Dark Dreams Studios. Problem is, they haven’t been playtested.
Without playtesting there is no way to know if the rules are fair or even work. For this task the guy who wrote the rules is actually the least qualified to test ‘em. So I will be setting up a table in the miniatures room on Saturday afternoon and inviting anyone who wants to give it a crack a chance to chip in.
After the convention, the rules will be offered as a free download on this site. That’s right, I said FREE.
Darren Callahan is my brother. His thing is horror while mine is Sci-fi and gaming. To each his own. However, he ROCKS the horror scene and is definitely worth checking out.
|ZOMBIES! There’s a new zombie epic coming out in a few months and it’s gotDarren Callahan all over it. Musically, anyway, as he wrote the film’s score. Check out the two trailers released to date! Super cool stuff…CHRYSALIS

Ray West is a writer of the high literary tradition. His works, The Price of Men’s Lives and Home to Red Island don’t even include a single ray gun. However, he has read the Star Run novel, Tales of the Screaming Eagle and had this to say:
“Sometimes when you unwrap a package, you expect no surprise based on its label and size. But the contents spill out with surprising texture in unanticipated directions.
A truly great story transcends its genre. While “The Screaming Eagle” is clearly Sci-Fi, its characters are so thoroughly developed, story line so compelling, dialogue so natural, that it excites all tastes and preferences.
Future tales give witness to humanity continuing, while retrospectives speak to the strengths that brought us to great accomplishment. Callahan blends the two so believably that it makes you happy to be a member of the human race, and longing to be part of his story.”
Needless to say I’m floored by his comments. The book is due to be released by Double Dragon Publishing in July of 2014, and I hope his opinion is shared by science fiction fans as well.
Is print dead? It’s a good question, but I don’t have that answer. However, I can say that print has some serious competition these days. For many people paper simply moves too slowly and the ease and convenience of a quick download has a wide appeal. In fact, the first Star Run novel, Tales of The Screaming Eagle will be coming out in E-book only format this July (see Double Dragon Publishing).
With that in mind; Quick And Easy games is now offering our flagship game, Star Run, as a PDF download. Just go to our catalog and click on the icon for the PDF version, and we will e-mail you your copy as soon as we check our e-mail (usually within 24 hours). It’s a great way to get you started in the fantastic universe of Star Run with it’s easy to learn, fast moving game system.
Susan R. Matthews is the author of the “Jurisdiction” novels. This award winning series features the career of Anderj Koscuisko, a good man in a bad position (he is a torturer for the state). The novels are dark, but rich in texture with fully realized characters in a well-developed and complex universe.
I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Matthews last year, and can attest that she is not as grim as her protagonist by a long shot. Well natured and very accessible to her fans, she is everything a science fiction author should be. I highly recommend her work!
