|Publication date||1985 (1e)|
Man to Man is a subset of GURPS, that is just the combat rules, as used in fantasy milieus. The basic rules are simple and flexible; the advanced rules are detailed and complex. The pack includes an introductory scenario.
Man to Man shared some elements with Steve Jackson's previous role-paying game, The Fantasy Trip, as they both centered on tactical combat played out on a hex grid, both used a point-based character creation system, and both used only six sided dice.:105
As the GURPS system was still being developed at the time, SJG initially released the combat system, rather than the entire game, in order to meet the deadline for Origins 1985; the result was Man to Man: Fantasy Combat from GURPS.:105 Man to Man was soon followed by a single supplement, Orcslayer (1985).:105 The original GURPS Basic Set (1986) included the combat rules of Man to Man.:107
