Tell Me About Your Favorite Game
So after proposing the idea yesterday I was kind of worried that this would be one of those things that I thought would be a good idea but everyone else was all "Wut?" Thankfully that turned out to be a foolish worry as I've already been joined by a bunch of great people on this project. Who's joining me on this project? These cool people: +Judd Karlman, +Roger Brasslett, +Kelvin Green, +David Guyll, +Ralph Lovegrove, +Adam Dickstein, +Jens D., +Stelios V. Perdios, +Douglas Cole, +Peter Maranci, +Mark Van Vlack, +Travis Milam, +Timothy Brannan, +Nicholas Bergquist, +Richard Halpin, +Rod Thompson, +Patrick Henry Downs, +Andrew Davis +Vb Wyrde, +David McGuire, +Murky Master, +Denis McCarthy, +Chris Patrick Carias Stas, +Erik Tenkar, Rob Abrazado, +Zach H and +Kevin Smith!
The sign up period for this project doesn't end until Monday, April 27, 2015. If you're on the fence there's still lots of time left to pick out your favorite game and join up. We've got a lot of games still left to be spoken for so here's a short list of games I'm hoping to have included (the ones
struckthrough have already been definitively spoken for) that is by no means complete. If your favorite game isn't listed then join up and tell me you want to talk about it! I'll add it to the list because this is a project where the more people we have involved, the more games we talk about, the better!
Remember, if no one signs up for one of the systems then it won't be in the PDF and it won't be in the online series. Don't let your favorite be left out!
Games Available (by no means a complete list)
Original Dungeons & Dragons
Basic Dungeons & Dragons (Mentzer)
Third Edition Dungeons & Dragons
Palladium Fantasy Role-Play
Lamentations of the Flame Princess
Champions (any edition)
Far Away Land
DC Heroes 3rd Edition (Mayfaire Exponential system)
Adventurer Conqueror King
Mage: the Ascension
What's this whole project about?
The core idea of this project is, "I love this game, now let me tell you why." What we're doing as a group is each author is taking their favorite game; telling you what they love about it; posting it on their blogs; and then at the end I'm compiling all of the posts into a single Free PDF.
If I want to join do I have to pick one of those games?
Absolutely not! If you've got an obscure, out-of-print favorite that has been rocking your world then talk about it! If your favorite game is a little known indie game that has been the best experience of your gaming life then tell us about it!
What if I want to join but don't have a blog?
Do you have Google+? A Tumblr? Do you have e-mail? If you answered any of these then you can totally join this project.
How do I join?
You can either leave a comment here, on the original post, or the G+ post. Or you can hit me up on Twitter @Thatakinsboy or E-Mail me (be sure to title your e-mail "I'd like to join the Favorite Games Project")
