A Sort of RPG Scenario Re-Boot

I’ve done some prep work today for my Cottage Con 2015 endeavour. It wasn’t a vast amount. Figuring out some issue titles. Creating some A5 character sheets, they still need a bit of fiddling. Thinking out some loose scene ideas to pull out of the hat. A bit of imagery, …

The CottageCon 2015 Challenge

In November we go off to a ‘sort of remote’ Cottage and play games for a couple of days. We started this tradition way back in 2007. That’s another date that makes me feel old as that’s eight years ago. That’s just ludicrous. I’d like to think we haven’t done …

Binging..RPG Campaigns

I’m always on the look out for different formats for delivering role-playing games. We already have the staples of long-running, mini-campaign and on-shot. Yes, these definitions can be debated until the ends of the Earth but you’re generally going to be involved for multiple of tens of sessions (long-running), somewhere …

Long Campaigns Attenuate Story

I’ve been gorging on web shows lately. I got into Titan’s Grave, which I really enjoyed and I took a few things away from it. This naturally lead to Critical Role, which I dived into, enjoyed, realised each episode was at least 3 hours long and I decided I’d watch …

The Strange Allure of Critical Role

I’ve talked about how much I’ve enjoyed Titan’s Grave and some of the ways it’s got me thinking about my potential future gaming. It also meant I discovered Critical Role, something else I’d never heard of before. Critical Role is quite different to Titan’s Grave. The former is very much …

Learning From Titan’s Grave and Board Games

I’m a fan of Titan’s Grave. It’s enthralling viewing, which is amazing when you consider it is a TV show that is a televised experience of role-playing game sessions. I’ve talked about why I like it and some of the implications of the TV show element that means you’re not …

The Brilliance of Titan’s Grave

Way back when it was mentioned that there was going to be a role-playing game version of the Geek & Sundry Tabletop show I assumed it would be similar to that in some way. Have to admit, I found it hard to imagine how that would work, especially with role-playing …

Star Wars Day To The Rebels

A while back, on good old Star Was day, we decided to play Imperial Assault. I’ll admit to also doing this because last time we played Zombicide it proved to be completely exhausting to the point no one has recovered yet to play it again! It was like an intense …

Facing The Zombicide Horde

I purchased two new boardgames relatively recently: Marvel Legendary and Zombicide. We played Marvel Legendary not too long ago, and today we got our first experience of Zombicide. Zombicide is a very clever game. It really feels like you’re playing in an episode of The Walking Dead. The overall escalation …

Defeating The Red Skull

A gaming first was undertaken today? I played a card game. This is different to playing cards, which I’ve obviously done. A hobby card game, involving the building of decks. I stepped away from card games during the height of the collectable card game boom as it just all seemed …
