A recent conversation with my home group pulled into focus a desire I have to run or play a bunch of the games I currently own.
Pulling my books out of storage to populate some nice new bookshelves, has also meant that I have a visual on the games I own, and want to play.
So, I am formulating a list of games to offer to my players. What I will do is offer them in pairs, and get them to chose one. The full list is as follows:
- Escape from Dino Island
- Mork Borg
- Star Wars WEG d6 version
- Lasers and Feelings
- Everyone is John
- Kids on Bikes
- Tales from the Loop
These games are going to be split into the following pairs:
The One Shot
Escape from Dino IslandA powered by the Apocalypse Engine RPG system, which is one I have not tried, but really think I should. This is basically a Jurassic Park game, made with one-shots firmly in mind, and requires no prep to run, as the table designs the set-up together.
This is a very different game . Players are scummy villainous dirtbags in a world that is dying, out to get what you can before the world ends. At its heart, it is a dungeon crawl, with very very simple rules, and where the GM never rolls any dice.
