The Illustrations of Giac My
August 14, 2012
I recall seeing an advertisement in an old gaming mag for Giac My suggesting that it was a fantasy Vietnam War rpg. Elves…hobbits…orcs…guerrillas…jungle…machine guns…etc. Sounded interesting.
Nope. When I eventually got my hands on Giac My, I discovered it was simply a modern warfare in jungle miniatures game. Nothing fantastical about it. I was a little disappointed. There’s no chance I’ll ever play it, but it’s still a cool little book.
Published in 1978 by FanTac Games. Size, style, and layout is a lot like an OD&D little brown book. Sprinkled throughout are rather silly but fun illustrations by F. MacCrae and R. Foerster.
This post is a shrine to the illustrations of Giac My.
