I'd love to have your input on this page, so leave me feedback on what you think. Any Gundam Statistics, Improvements, Corrections, etc, don't hesitate to send me a buzz at my email address: devillin @ hotmail.com .

As you will see in the page below, I am a fan of the Universal Century Gundam. These are the Gundam stories that start with the Original Gundam in U.C. 0079 and end somewhere after U.C. 0150 with V-Gundam. I have nothing against Gundam Wing or any of the other alternate universe Gundam series, in fact, I loved Seed, Destiny, and 00. Maybe one day I will do a write up of those series, maybe not. In any case, I hope you will find the information presented below interesting and informative.

Gundam Campaign Rules for Mecha!:

As you can imagine, a series as popular as Gundam is sure to spawn a board game or RPG of sort. While Bandai does have an official Gundam RPG, it is only available in Japanese (making it a bit hard to play if you only understand English). Over the years, there have been several Gundam Conversions for many of the mecha game systems. I have seen conversions for everything from Heavy Gear to Mekton. As I don't play those game systems (Battletech fan myself), I never bothered to collect those conversions. If you want to get them, you can ask on the Usenet newsgroup dedicated to mecha wargaming, Rec.Games.Mecha (which I help moderate). The quickest and easiest way to join the newsgroup is to go to Deja.com and sign up.

Way back in 1994, a previous member of the newsgroup, Daniel Ho, posted a preliminary conversion for playing Gundam in the Mecha! gaming system. I liked the write up and contacted Daniel about the conversion and Mecha!. After several long conversations, I decided to buy the book and try it out. To say the least, I fell heads over heels in love with the game. Over the next 2 years we collaborated and completed the conversion. With technical help from Mark Simmons, I also completed conversions for the One Year War and Char's CounterAttack. Finally, after 5 years, the final version of the Gundam Conversion is finished, Version 3.5. Version 3.5 can be found below, along with the various campaign settings.
