Skud Pai Sho is a set of rules for playing Pai Sho using the Wiki Pai Sho tile set. I’ve been trying to get a game to the table for some time, having received a beautiful Pai Sho set from Lyris Laser Studio, but it’s been tough for some reason. Now, the creator of the Skud Pai Sho variation has …

Most unusual circumstance or location in which you’ve game? I’ve already mentioned this back on Day 10. There were times during summer camp where we’d play AD&D 2nd while in the camp van. It’s not super unusual, but it’s what I’ve got. It really wasn’t too hard. The Planescape setting at the time came in a box, so that’s where …

What makes a good character? The player makes a good character. I’m not just talking about assigning stats, creating the backstory, etc… It’s all about how the player actually plays their character. Even the most tired tropes and cliches can be great when in the hands of a good player. What makes a good player is hard to describe, but …

What game are you likely to give to others? Different strokes for different folks. I can’t say there’s one game I’d give universally. D&D is a solid choice for many fantasy fans, but even then it may not be the best choice. I’d love to give Dungeon World for its simplicity. Apocalypse World for those who may not be into …

Share one of you ‘Worst Luck’ Stories. This story is, once again, from an AD&D 2nd Edition game in my college days. I had recently rolled up a new character due to the untimely death of the last. I don’t even remember which character died, because he was a brief character rolled up after the untimely death of the character …

Force Grey: Giant Hunters

I never thought I’d enjoy watching people play RPGs. I couldn’t quite get into Critical Role, though I love Matthew Mercer and crew. It’s just too long. Too raw. Then came Wil Wheaton’s Titansgrave. It was edited into one hour chunks, had some cool art to go with it, and was a joy to watch. I also really enjoyed the …
