Summary
I really love the bizarre yet familiar setting of Tales from the Loop as well as the ability to craft the style of the game however you please. The rules light system is perfect for easily jumping into single session adventures or short campaign mysteries. The presentation and artwork are top notch. Some gamers might not like the bare bones rules and the lack of more meaty mechanics but I think the right crowd will love this game. I will say it's a touch pricier than I'd like, by about five dollars and Tales from the Loop is really suited for one shots and three to four session campaigns.
