Every year, the hashtag #RPGaDAY makes its way around the social medias, and gamers try their damnedest to answer each question every day. Most fail. I probably will too. BUT. I will try!
Today's question: How do you find out about new RPGs?
These days I find out about new games through either religiously browsing Kickstarter or through one of the many RPG podcasts I listen to.
Scrolling through new projects in the Tabletop section of Kickstarter has become a daily ritual for me. Even if it's not something I decide to back I just enjoy seeing what's coming down the pike. More often than not I find out about existing material by seeing source books, adventures, and related material being crowdfunded. Symbaroum was a perfect example of this when they were running their Thistlehold campaign.
Podcasts round out how I find out about new material. The boys over at Gaming and BS turned me onto Dungeon Crawl Classics, while the men and women over at Misdirected Mark Productions piqued my interest in Powered by the Apocalypse games. With the hours upon hours I spend listening to podcasts, I have no shortage of new stuff to investigate.
Last but not least I occasionally get recommendations from my local gaming group, however more often than not they are playing what I am playing and in general are far less polygamerous than me.
There's certainly no shortage of RPGs out there to learn about, that's for sure.
