Don’t Call Them Bugs!

“Listen up newbie! I know what you unwarranted high regard for yourself recruits call our enemy – Bugs. A bug is something very small you see crawling on the ground. Something insignificant that you step on and keep doing whatever you’re doing. I got news for you. That’s not what these things, these Bugs, are. We’re going down into the Tunnels looking for real Bugs. When you meet one face to face, try not to wet yourself, and pray to whatever god you believe in that you get out alive. Because to them; we’re the insignificant ones.”

5150: Bugs – No Retreat is the second of three books linked together to cover the Bug infestation that threatens the 5150 Universe. All three are stand-alone games. In fact, 5150: Bugs –No Retreat can be used with all of our other 5150 titles.

What: Sci-Fi Squad/Platoon size combat.
Scale: Man to man combat. 1 figure equals 1 man or Bug.
Your Role: Players can command from one Squad to a full Platoon of infantry.
Playability: Designed for solo, same side and head to head play.
5150: Bugs - No Retreat can be played in a variety of ways:

  • You can play as a Squad Leader with a full Squad.
  • You can play as a Squad Leader with less than a full Squad.
  • You can play as a Platoon Leader with a full Platoon of multiple Squads.

    The bottom line is you can play it any way you like, with any figures you may already have or with the included color counters.
    Inside you’ll find:
  • A man to man skirmish combat system that plays fast and yields realistic results.
  • Complete rules covering five types of Bugs – Warrior, Worker, Flyer, Puker, Queen and Brain.
  • Color Counters including Fort 373.
  • Ten different Scenarios that are linked together, building your Story.
  • Sixteen different Lists covering seven different Factions for you to choose from.
  • A minimal bookkeeping Campaign System that gives meaning to every game as the results of one will affect the outcome of the next.

Surrounded? So what!

Word’s come down from the top. The Bugs are on a roll and moving fast towards us. We’re cut off from any support so we need to pull back to Fort 373. Once there, we hold the fort and buy HQ some time to regroup. With any luck, they’ll send someone to pick us up, but don’t count on it. Doesn’t matter anyway, we just have to do our job. Do…your…job!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
