Quadrant 13 (Q13) is a company-sized game covering science fiction warfare aimed primarily at using 6-15mm figures. It uses the same basic mechanics as I Ainít Been Shot, Mum! and/or Charlie Donít Surf, but is as different in flavour from them as they are from each other. It is a stand-alone game: no other rulebooks or supplements are necessary to play.
The rules are completely generic, allowing players to use them to play any sci-fi conflict that they choose: whether based on background from another system, background from a film or book, background from a range of figures, or even a background that they have made up themselves. It also allows gamers to play the type of science fiction game that they want to play: Ďhardí sci fi, where realism is the key; space opera style games which run almost like a film; battles featuring a small number of super-tough figures against a large number of not-so-tough opponentsÖyou name it, you can play it.

This edition combines both the PDF file of the rules with the navigable tablet version designed for the iPad and similar models.†
Q13 is written by Robert Avery, author of eight scenario books for I Ainít Been Shot, Mum!, all of which are also available from theTooFatLardies.
