Hobby Update 08/07/18: Prepping Paranoia

The week began with a bit of a craft project.  I printed up a deck of cards to use in my Wednesday game of Paranoia.  In addition to the printed cards, I used some other supplies.  These were a selection of sleeves and some old Magic lands to put behind the prints to give them… Continue reading Hobby Update 08/07/18: Prepping Paranoia

Choosing an RPG for a New Group

I've got a lovely opportunity coming up.  Some old friends are interested in trying out a roleplaying game and I'm delighted to be their GM.  I love GMing.  I like playing RPGs, but GMing is where my heart is.  I like telling stories and working with the players to really create something special. Thing is,… Continue reading Choosing an RPG for a New Group

Hobby Update 01/07/18: Onward to Strahd

A little late this week, but then I've not really done all that much, hobby-wise, apart from a bit of D&D. The first of these sessions was my Lybster group.  We stormed a bandit outpost that we really had no business storming.  It didn't help that several members of the group did not follow the… Continue reading Hobby Update 01/07/18: Onward to Strahd

Bundle of Holding: Paranoia Classic

So far, I've done Top 50 rankings for two years.  Paranoia appeared in both sets, at number 21 in 2016 and then an even more respectable number 2 in 2017.  So, yeah, needless to say, I really like this game. Paranoia feels unique.  It is often described as a cross between 1984 and Monty Python… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Paranoia Classic

RPG Resources: Paranoia Paperwork

Paranoia is fantastic.  It's my favourite RPG for a one-shot game.  It's not one I'd necessarily run as a longer campaign, but that's fine as there are other games to scratch that itch.  One thing I love, love, love about Paranoia is its take on mindless bureaucracy.  The world of Paranoia is one of dystopian bureaucracy and it is important that you, as the GM,… Continue reading RPG Resources: Paranoia Paperwork

Top 50 Games 2016 (30-21)

  Right, part 3 of the top 50 list.  Let's go!  Actually, no.  Wait.  If you've not read them yet, you should probably go back and read part 1 and part 2.  Once you've done that, you may continue on and read about games 30 through 21. 30: The Settlers of Catan Year: 1995 Designer: Klaus Teuber… Continue reading Top 50 Games 2016 (30-21)
