#RPGaDay2017 Day 18: The Answer is D&D

Today’s answer has been a constant all week, and it’s fitting it will be the Friday post. Just as the answer to the questions of #RPGaDay2017 about the game I prefer for open ended campaigns, and the one I like running as is, the answer for today is simple. Before I get to the answer, the question is:

August 18: Which RPG have you played the most in your life?

In case the banner picture at the top of the post didn’t give it away, the game I’ve played the most in my life is Dungeons & Dragons. I remember seeing this ad in a comic even before playing the game. Continue reading #RPGaDay2017 Day 18: The Answer is D&D

The Force is with us!

By now you probably know Fantasy Flight Games is doing a reprint of the Star Wars Role-Playing Game originally published by West End Games for its 30th anniversary. I made video about it on my YouTube Channel and I’m sharing with you all here!

You can get the West End Games D6 games here. Check out Mini Six here.

Check out this Rolling Stones article about the game.

Have a great evening! May the force be with you.

Gamer Rewatch Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace

In preparation for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, like almost everybody out there, I’ve decided to re-watch the Star Wars movies once again! The Internet is abuzz with retrospectives, new reviews of the original movies, and so much more. This is my contribution to that great effort!

When Star Wars (before it was Episode IV – A New Hope) came out I was four years old. I Watched in theaters, many times, and I’ve been a fan ever since. As a gamer, part of that experience was the role-playing games, from West End Game’s Star Wars D6 (not called that back then, it was simply Star Wars the RPG), to the Wizards of the Coast versions, to the myriad fan conversions to other systems. I’ve yet to buy the Fantasy Flight Games version, but if they publish a Force Awakens book they may get me to try their funky dice version of the game.

Before I watch the new movie on the 17th (yes we get it a day early in Puerto Rico!) there is a plan in place to see at least all six original films. I’ll be sharing my impression on the re-watch, rom a gamer’s perspective, perhaps offer some insight on what could work for a Star Wars game, and definitely some rambling along the way, we’ll see what comes out of this experiment. Let’s get this started: Continue reading Gamer Rewatch Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace
