#RPGaDAY - Days 17-21
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!
OMG WHAT HAPPENED: Gen Con 50 happened, and I was off the internets for nearly the entire time. It was a wonderful and glorious weekend, but now that I'm back I am repaying my debts to reality. I'm starting with a compilation for the RPGaDAY posts that I missed.
Day 17: Which RPG have you owned the longest but not played? This one is definitely going to be Numenera. I loved the idea of it when I saw it, bought it when it was on super-sale, but just haven't found the opportunity to play. But great news, that may be changing in the near future!
Day 18: Which RPG have you played the most in your life? D&D. 'Nuff said.
Day 19: Which RPG has the best writing? I have a hard time nailing this one down, because good writing could mean a couple things. Are we talking about flavorful text, or writing that conveys the rules clearly? However, thinking of it in both terms I put forth my nomination here: Fiasco. The conversational style that the book is written is easy to understand, while keeping in-theme the whole time.
Day 20: What is the best source for out-of-print RPGs? I don't really look for out-of-print RPGs, so I can't really answer this with any sort of confidence.
Day 21: Which RPG does the most with the least words? I've never played it, but I've read the one pager of Lasers and Feelings. I've heard people talk about it. And this little game does a lot with not a whole lot.
I'll get back on track today with Day 22 today.
