Illiani has. I haven't but I've listened to enough audio sessions of people playing it to have a rough idea of how it works. Something like 25-28 sessions at around 2-4 hours long each must've given me some innate grasp of this "rolling bigger and bigger dice" system. They get bigger.

And as far as I know Savage Worlds is a roleplaying game. Not a wargame.

Yeah, I've played a couple of games with Savage Worlds and once you get your head around the concepts it plays pretty well - just like any game with different concepts.  I liked it, and would play again for most skirmish-style games.

I've also tried a couple of RPGs using the system as an RPG and we found it a bit clunky for anything other than games which amount to a series of encounters.

YMMV
