Books and Bullets
An adventure game of Lovecraftian horror & mystery that shoots the line of complexity between Trail of Cthulhu and Cthulhu Dark, and which avoids the Insanity death spiral without taking the sting out of mind-shattering revelations.
Format: 3 single-sided pages (player, mythos master, resources)
Base: Lasers & Feelings by John Harper (+ others named in the doc)

Flash Fantasy
A micro fantasy game suitable for playing old school modules. Or at least that was my goal; you can decide if I succeeded.
Format: Pocket-Mod*
Based on: Minimal d6 by Norbert G. Matausch

A role-playing game about the miserable (but never dull) lives of a warren of goblins trying to defend their community against endless perils. It is suitable for either a one-shot or a short campaign.
Format: 3 'booklets' (folded, double-sided pages)
Base: an original system by Ray Otus

Road Wars
A racing game I designed to be played on the floor with any kind of toy vehicle, but especially with ones you make out of plastic building blocks. (You know the ones I mean!)
Format: 9 single-sided pages, includes character sheets and tokens
Base: an original system by Ray Otus

Sorcerers & Sellswords
A one-page game of weird fantasy – think Clark Ashton Smith, Ralph Bakshi’s Wizards, the early tales of Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd & the Gray Mouser, Thundarr the Barbarian, etc. The world is full of danger and mystery. A person’s safety and livelihood often depends on their wits or a strong arm. Sorcerous powers are available to those desperate or insane enough to use them.
Format: 1-page (2-sided + character sheets) and Pocket-Mod*
Base: Lasers & Feelings by John Harper

Space Trucker
A micro-game inspired by 70s "trucker" stories and music - with a dash of Kung Fu, Space Opera, and Funk thrown in. Also included is a supplement created by Greg Gelder.
Format: Pocket-Mod*
Base: Minimal d6 by Norbert Matausch and Thronelands by Sean Wills

There and Back Again
You are an adventurer in the world of The Hobbit. Specifically the world as it appeared in the 1937 edition of that book. Anyone can be a wizard with the right knowledge, trolls turn to stone in the sunlight, animals or magical objects can speak, elves aren't always nice, and the wild is full of terrible creatures like goblins, giant spiders, and even dragons!
Format: 1-page (2-sided, folding optional)
Base: an original system by Ray Otus

Pocket-Mod is a single-page format with special folding that creates a tiny booklet.
