I was chatting with Mark Diaz Truman about Urban Shadows, trying to get a bead on when all those stretch goals might get delivered. But of course I don’t actually care about the city guides. I care about the playbooks.
I don’t know what it is about fucking playbooks! AW, MH, every time and I’ll bet I’m not alone: I get antsy about completing the collection. Even when I know I’ll never use them all. Even when I don’t especially like them.
Totally the same way about boardgames, but it’s much more expensive because it usually involves chits or cards. If I know there’s a promo or expansion or extra whatever available, I won’t be settled until it’s in hand. Even for games I don’t pay any more. It’s the big reason I got out of CCGs, honestly.
Isn’t that crazy? Some borderline OCD or hoarding impulse at work I guess.

Ditto, I started out with a notebook to archive playbooks. Eventually I ran out of coverslip pages. Now it’s all on dropbox (except a couple that might not have been released as PDFs).
Marshall Miller what’s wrong with us?!
Gotta catch ’em all.
WHAT THE ACE Marshall Miller I WENT AND HUNTED DOWN THE YOUTUBE LINK TO THE SONG AND HERE I COME BACK TO THE POST AND REALIZE YOU ALREADY MADE THE JOKE
I’m really glad that my weird OCD thing is bang-for-buck optimization. It’s not any less silly, ultimately, but it drives me in more practical directions.
