Just Insert Imagination Mini Review: Size Matters.
Size Matters is a for the whole family, sandbox adventure for Savage Worlds. Six people are shrunk to 1 inch tall in a laboratory accident. Can they reach help? Can they survive in a world of giants? Or will their tiny skeletons end up forgotten in an air vent or crack in the floor?
In the document (that is designed to fit inside a GM screen) you will find:
- setting rules
- twists and complications to use
- 6 pre-generated characters and character sheets
- a blank character sheet to create your own character
- 5 battle-maps
- printable cards with size comparisons
- a map of level five
- figure flats
The theme here is just like the picture shows. In the vein of “Honey, I shrunk the kids!” and “The incredible shrinking Man/Woman” or the Littles. your players are either tiny people or become tiny people for one reason or another.
We’re now a quarter of an inch tall, and sixty-four feet from the house. That’s an equivalent of three-point-two miles. That’s a long way. Even for a man of science. – Nick, Honey, I shrunk the kids
The adventure like all other Just Insert Imaginations products is made for Savage Worlds and designed for one-shot or convention play. It comes with a nice set of NPC’s and some pretty cool maps and cards. I love the size comparison hand out. Showing the size of the players compared to every creature detailed in the adventure.
I am not normally a fan of figure flats but I think just because this is a game where “Size Maters” I am very pleased that they were included in this product. And I know that If I run this I most definitely would use them unless I had enough time in advance to find toys or minis to properly represent them at the table.
The map for this product is super basic. It is nothing more than a standard you are here sign you would find in most any building or mall. At first, I was very disappointed in it. But in time the irony grew on me that in a modern day world that is about all your going to get out of a modern building map. Even with my Ding on their You Are Here map they make up for it in the combat maps they provide. I personally found the computer desktop battle map an excellent idea.
Overall my thoughts on Size Maters is this is a solid purchase! There are enough ideas here that you could have this adventure take place in several different locations and all of them would prove fun and virtually all the critters listed here could still be used.
