So tired…so tired. Well so here are short answers for the #rpgaday #rpgaday2017 days I missed over the weekend. I’m sure you’ve all been waiting on the edge of your seat:
19: Best writing. Urrrgh games mostly aren’t notable for their writing. But I’ve always had a fondness for luke crane’s Imp voice in the Burning Wheel games. He set out to be confrontational and succeeded beyond his wildest dreams. 😀 I’m serious! The whole game has an attitude that’s fundamental to loving or hating it. And it’s sincere, not a stylistic affectation (see the endless f-bombs in Apocalypse World, a game I adore but not for the stylistic affectations).
20: Out of print: Fuck if I know. Totally not my interest area. If I had one of those awesome Half Price Book outlets near me that seems to have a portal into 1979, I might be interested. I have no idea how many thousands of dollars of old games I’ve sold, traded or given away over time. I regret most of them now.
21: Most with the fewest words: Gonna go with Archipelago on this one, with Montsegur 1244 a close second. The fact these games are so functional with pretty much none of the traditional scaffolding is a marvel.

Do you think you play so dang much that you’ve pretty much gotten what you wanted out of any old, dusty games?
I think so, yeah, although there are some oldies that have a lot of merit. Really loved our run through King Arthur Pendragon, for example, largely because it was kind of an ur-storygame. Can’t think of another example.
Sometimes we only have so many stories to tell.
Adam Day I feel like as the technology has advanced, the old stuff has become obsolete.
