Psycho-Slasher: the Game, Now Available!

Psycho-Slasher: The Game is a 30 page long miniature game homage to the low budget slasher films of the 1970's and 1980's, playable in any scale from 15mm to 54mm. Psycho-Slasher is easy to learn, and fun to play, with each player acting as a Writer and running their own Slasher. The competing Slashers don't interact directly, but the Writers have the ability to hinder or help other Slashers with the placement of new weapons, or, more importantly, manipulating the horde of Pawns that populate the Slasher film tableau.


You say that love the idea, but that you don't have miniatures for a game like this? No problem! Included with the game are printable paper miniatures... you get 5 distinct Slashers, a Cop, and 4 distinct Pawns. Print as many Pawns and Cops as you need, snip, fold, glue, and you are all set! Also included are printable Weapon counters, and Pawn Special counters that introduce twists to the game like Phones (self-explanatory,) Beer (dangerous for Pawns), and Hysteria (AHHHHH!!!).

Not recommended for children under the age of 16. This is meant to be a fun game, based on a movie genre, and does not take it self seriously... still, the subject matter may not be appropriate for everyone.

Psycho-Slasher: the Game is available in pdf format only.

Altar of Freedom, Available Now!

There are many outstanding rule systems available for the American Civil War, but few of them focus exclusively on army-level command. Altar of Freedom allows you to play the biggest battles of the war with multiple players, in one evening, on limited table space.

This system is designed for real historical scenarios like Antietam or Chickamauga, not for points-driven tournament matches. Your role as a player will be to step into the boots of a corps or army general. Operating at the highest levels of command, you will not bother yourself with micromanaging regiments or interfering in the affairs of your colonels. Your challenge will be coordinating your divisions to be in the right place at the right time and wrestling with the outsized personalities of your corps commanders. The rest, as Robert E. Lee might say, is in God's hands.

Scale is Grand Tactical. The rules are designed for 6mm/10mm miniatures, with an available conversion to 15mm.

One turn is approximately one hour & 1" = 150+ yards.

1 base = 1 brigade. Basing is flexible, so long as both armies are based in the same manner. Recommended basing is 1.25" x 2.5" [30mm x 60mm] for infantry and cavalry and 1.25" x 1.25" [30mm x 30mm] for artillery and generals.

Altar of Freedom is a turn-based game, although the duration of each turn is determined by a variable Turn Clock. At the start of each turn, players secretly bid Priority Points for the opportunity to maneuver their divisions before the enemy. After the secret bidding, players reveal their highest bids and begin maneuvering divisions in order of priority. After each new bid is reached, players roll to remove time from the Turn Clock. The Turn Clock is the strategic center-piece of the game, since players vie for control of the clock throughout the battle. He who controls the clock can manipulate the speed of the countdown. When the clock does expire, the turn ends immediately and players complete some minor adjustments before proceeding to the next turn. Because all games are based on historical scenarios, every battle has a defined end with victory conditions for each commander.

Iron Ivan Games presents Disposable Heroes and Coffin for Seven Brothers: a complete WWII skirmish wargame system featuring infantry, artillery, aircraft, and vehicles. The game is fast, easy to learn, and gives realistic tactical results without getting bogged down in record keeping or chart reading. The game is as intuitive as possible without being simplistic and will definitely reward good tactics. Fire and movement are important and easy to recreate. The main features include an initiative system, alternating unit activation, realistic weapon and cover usage, a dynamic morale system for infantry and vehicles, as well as a target acquisition system to make vehicles more realistic. Vehicles feature historically accurate armor values and accurate gun penetration while still maintaining playability and balance. Play infantry only, armor only, or best of all, realistic combined arms.

Disposable Heroes and Coffin for Seven Brothers is versatile enough to play anywhere from platoon sized engagements up to full company level games in 1:1 scale. A typical platoon sized game can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours, while we have completed Battalion sized games in under 4 hours! Our system is perfect for running those convention games and keeps all players actively involved throughout the game. No more bored players waiting for their turn. No steep learning curve.

The basic maneuver element is a half squad or support unit and single vehicle. You can play in 15mm, 20mm, and 25/28mm with ease, even 54mm. The game minimizes counters and is virtually chartless for infantry. No charts are used to determine a combat result, though some are used to provide organized information. Spend more time playing and less time looking things up! The only dice needed are several ten sided dice. The main rulebook includes all the rules needed to play and covers infantry, vehicles, artillery, air support, paratrooper drops, mines, smoke, and weather. Also included are short basic army lists (German, American, British, and Soviet for late war) with historically accurate Tables of Organization & Equipment to get players started right away. The army lists provided contain easy to use unit ID cards and include a built in points system for players who wish to use historically accurate forces while playing a balanced game.

Iron Ivan Games plan on continuing to release books and free files in support of the DH/C7B system. Full support as well as much more information throughout our website will include contact information, free "extras", painting guides, more scenarios, special rules, and army lists as we expand.
