Game of the Month: Dungeon World

For December’s game-of-the-month, I played in a session of Dungeon World run by Brent Newhall. The game started as a hack of Apocalypse World inspired by old school dungeon delving but  is now available as a standalone basic game from Sage Kobold Productions. We started the session with character creation which went pretty quickly. Each class […]

My gaming group played BattleTech for November’s game-of-the-month. BattleTech is a game of armored combat in the 31st century that is currently published by Catalyst Game Labs.

Game of the Month Club

I’ve been playing role-playing games for more than a decade. While I started role-playing with the revised edition of AD&D 2E, most of my gaming time has been spent running campaigns in D&D 3.X and 4E. Over the years, I’ve picked up a fair number of other RPGs, but have never really managed to play […]
