    I recently bought this so I could have something to flip through at the table while playing the game it was based on (which is long out of print). If you have any interest in THE British superhero roleplaying game from the 1980s, you really should have a copy Codename: Spandex. It is a very faithful reconstruction of the original. There are a few VERY minor deviations from the classic rules here and there. These may be an attempt to keep the game "legal", as it were(that is to say, keeping it planted firmly in "retro-clone" territory), or they could be minor tweaks based on the author's personal preference. I have incorporated some of these into the original game, which I am currently running for my young nephews. If you find these little changes not to your taste, it is easy enough to ignore them. But make no mistake: Codename: Spandex is 100% compatible with all material from its long lost progenitor, with no modifications required. The book itself is GORGEOUS.... More > It is laid out very well. The art and design are top notch. Concepts flow nicely from one to the next, making the rules easy to understand. Handily, the relevant tables are all re-printed in the back of the book for handy reference. This last bit is an improvement over the original game. The pages are colorful and glossy. Nothing here feels cheap. There is a high level of quality in both the book's presentation and its physical form. Excellent purchase, and I am quite satisfied with it. I did find one or two minor typos, but nothing that would detract from the rating. Bottom line: this is a highly professional looking product. Even if you aren't familiar with its roots, this game functions perfectly well on its own. I didn't go into much detail about the game's mechanics, but if you Google "Codename: Spandex", you'll find plenty of info on its celebrated ancestor. The game is a unique and innovative (even by today's standards) superhero game that tries a very different approach than other games. Codename: Spandex, a faithful re-creation of the original, is highly recommended.< Less
