I’ve been doing more playing than writing. Not good for finishing my novel I know, but whatever. I keep submitting what I have and keep on. Persist. I played Small World from Days of Wonder, which is a clever game. You are one of many fantasy races trying to win territory with some tricky dick tile mechanics. But then your race goes into decline and you pick a new race, rinse and repeat for a set number of turns. So it’s all about picking the right time to go into decline. Maybe this game is too clever. I don’t know, if you want a clever French game, try Mayfair’s Horus. It’s more abstract but more fun I think.
Then I play tested a friend’s RPG. I always wanted to be a play tester. I won’t tell the name of the game but I think it’s going to be good. They will have to do a kickstarter or something to get it going. I was a priest, and I got to speak some spanish and kill a giant bug. Being relatively new to RPGs, it kind of make me sad that I didn’t play them all along. Oh well, better late than never.
