Spectrum Games is proud to announce the release of the Urban Manhunt Companion, the first major supplement for the Urban Manhunt tabletop miniatures game. It includes:
According to Spectrum President, Cynthia Celeste Miller, “I’ve always had a soft spot for game supplements that offered a wide variety of new game elements. We feel the Urban Manhunt Companion accomplishes that goal. There really is something for everyone in this product.”
The Urban Manhunt Companion was originally going to be released last year, but the global pandemic slowed down the playtesting process to a crawl. “We didn’t want to release a supplement that wasn’t thoroughly playtested, so we opted to wait. We’re happy we did, because the end result is exactly the product we wanted it to be from the beginning.”
The Urban Manhunt Companion is available as a PDF at DriveThruRPG and Wargame Vault. Click here to purchase it: www.drivethrurpg.com/product/355729/Urban-Manhunt-Companion?affiliate_id=35508
The product will be available as a hardcopy book in June.

Urban Manhunt Movie Update
After having been temporarily derailed right out of the gates due to the global pandemic, the Urban Manhunt movie is back in development. An official press release is forthcoming, which will include star attachments and other such details. A prequel novel is also in the works, bridging the gap between the game and the film. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
Bexim's Bazaar to Feature Monthly Urban Manhunt Content
The folks at Bexim's Bazaar magazine feature brand new original content for Urban Manhunt in each issue, starting with Issue #22. This issue's article offers details about an indie promotion called Balls-To-The-Walls Urban Manhunt, including rules for playing matches in that promotion. The fans actually follow the hunters around the zone and are allowed to directly affect the match; they hand crims weapons, set off booby traps and more. Plus, hunters have to be careful not to hurt (or kill) the fans or else they'll be docked points!
Order issue #22 here!
Third-Party Urban Manhunt Supplements
We have been in talks with a prominent game company in regard to them publishing third-party material for Urban Manhunt. Stay tuned for more information! Urban Manhunt continues to grow and exciting things are in store!

The NUML is launching a new annual tournament called the Colin Lionel Invitational. The organization's booking committee will select who they feel are the best of the best from the indie scene and give them a shot at the "big leagues".
Each of the hunters will participate in three matches, tallying up their points throughout the evening. The two hunters with the highest amount of points at the conclusion of the matches will square off in a one-on-one match to determine the first and second place winners. Meanwhile, all the others will be involved in a free-for-all match to determine the third place winner.
We are holding the tournament on Saturday, August 1st and will be updating everyone throughout the day and evening. There will be MAJOR implications on one of the plots of the setting; implications that may change the entire Urban Manhunt landscape!
