My 2011 Gaming Resolutions

I’m a few days late since I was on vacation through the holidays, but better late than never. Here are my 2011 game-related resolutions: Continuing playing RPGs on a weekly basis – we get to play nearly every Sunday now, up from once per month just a couple years ago, and I’d like to keep that going so …

The games I played at IndieCon – Session #3

Friday night’s session (#3) involved a game of  Apocalypse World , something I was anxious to try out having read a lot of positive reviews. For this game we headed back to the GM’s chalet since it was a quieter place to play than the main hall. Session #3 – Apocalypse World This session involved four players plus the GM – 3 …

We chose Graham Walmsley’s Gangster London playset which was a bit ironic since Graham was playing with us. The set-up phase saw us playing a very interesting assortment of characters: A …

Back from IndieCon 2010

I’m back and will have a bunch of session reports and other comments over the next few days. The short summary: Fiasco is unbelievably good when it’s firing on all cylinders, although if you get a player who starts negating or introducing supernatural stuff it can be a struggle. Apocalypse World is really cool, but probably is better suited to multiple sessions than a…

Planning for IndieCon 2010

I’m all set to go to IndieCon 2010 which will be taking place November 4-7th in Dorset, UK. I had a blast at last year’s convention and am really looking forward to this year as well. I’m already planning on what games I’ll be running – I definitely will run a demo session (maybe two) of my soon-to-be-released …
