I re-read Hollowpoint last night for probably the third time since it came out. I love the idea of the game, but find it strangely intimidating. Has anyone had experience of running it? How was it?

Same experience here.

Never seen it played, but the book looked damn "kewl".

Hollowpoint is the D6 pools one yeah? I only ever played it once and it took a bit of head scratching to grok the system. Once we had it all figured out it ran quite smoothly.

Yes, many times. A couple of times as straight Hollowpoint, but many more times as my action orientated bad ass version of The Lord of the Rings, Hobbitpoint.

You read my Goodreads review, Dom. As a Greg Wallace impressionist would yawp, "I like it!".

Quick to explain, fast to run. Very enjoyable.
