Bamboo n’ Bones is a simple and universal game system, offering dynamics reminiscent of action movies. The game uses a ten-sided dice (d10), papers, pencils, a method to acquire karma (either by “heads or tails” or by tokens). It is made for 3 to 5 players, including a game master.
Good karma can be used by players to perform extraordinary actions such as luck, power, speed or even cinematographic shots. Examples of cinematographic shots: for a Kung Fu film, it allows the character to walk on the walls, jumped from top to top of trees… For action movies, detonate a car with a pistol bullet, riding a motorcycle on a moving train.
Beware of bad karma, it allows opponents to also have access to extraordinary actions.
The game is available in french only (for now) for free on DriveThruRPG.
