Finally got to give Toon a test drive. It was a rainy Saturday so it was easy to recruit my son and his friend (who is a girl but not his girlfriend even though they spend more time together during the summer than I have been able to spend with my lovely bride since... forever). Anyway, we ran through The Cartoon Olympics by Warren Spector. I was the animator, my son was Fred Bulldog, and his friend was Olga Hippopovna. This was intended to be a three sporting-event adventure.

Event #1: The Boxing Match

Olga can fight well, Fred cannot. As Olga was pounding Fred to a pulp he was running away trying to influence the referee via fast-talk. The fighting was interrupted by an out-of-control monkey heaving a giant marangue pie at the combatants. Sadly, nobody got hit by the pie. The monkey then (somehow) got a hold of boxing gloves and started spinning around the ring trying to hit anything that got too close. Again, the monkey was unsuccessful. Olga and Fred teamed up to beat the (temporary) pulp out of the monkey. As the monkey dropped, Olga stomped Fred and won the match.
Score: Olga 1 Fred 0

Event #2: Javelin Competition

Not only can Olga fight, she can throw things quite accurately too. Olga would have won quite rapidly but she decided to pick on Fred instead. She was able to convince him to try to catch her thrown javelins. He tried... he failed... he went down... Fred was not too happy that we was the victim of fast-talk and ended up falling down. While Fred was busy recovering, Olga won the Javelin throw.
Score: Olga 2 Fred 0

Event #3 (The Marathon) was not even started because Olga already had enough Plot Points to win the Olympic games.

Olga won a kiss from the King of the Day, none other than Quasimodo of Notre-Dame fame. And she was given the keys to a brand new sports car. As she drove off with her prizes and honors, the car slowly fell apart. The scene fades as Olga sits on the road with a steering wheel in her hands while the rest of the disassembled car parts littered the roadway.

The End

TOON!

TOON! The Cartoon Roleplaying game is set in the crazy world of cartoons, where anything can and usually does, happen. Animals speak perfect English and are usually plotting to cheat each other, blow each other up, eat each other or otherwise commit mayhem.

But Nobody ever Dies!

You'll be able to play all your favorite cartoon stars that you've seen in the papers, movies or tv.

TOON! Is a Role-playing game, where you pretend to be a hero, pirate, space pilot or whatever...just like you did when you were a kid! An “Animator” runs the game and describes the world where the “Player Characters” participate in.

TOON! isn't like any other role-playing game! In most RPG's the idea is to plot and plan—to think before you act—and make sure your character survives, thrives and becomes more proficient at everything her or she does.

FORGET ALL THAT!

Survival? Who Cares? You can't die, so you've got nothing to lose by jumping right in and having fun!

Think before you act? No Way. If you take the time to think every action through, the game will get bogged down and nobody will have any fun. The action in TOON! Is meant to be fast paced...so always go with your first instinct and write it down, even if it doesn't make sense. When was the last time you saw a cartoon character do something logical?

ACT before you THINK.

It doesn't matter how stupid, weak or inept your character is. Poor die-rolling doesn't mean a bad character. Half the fun of TOON! IS failing...because of the silly things that happen when you fail! So “bad” characters are just as much fun—maybe more fun—than “good” characters.

So to repeat: Forget EVERYTHING you know and ACT before you THINK!

This adventure will require 5 player characters and is taking place on the set of a new movie where several of the actors have been fired and refuse to leave. Rules will be explained as we go and character selection will be first come, first pick of the pre-made characters.

My kids...

Joseph is 11, Katlyn turns 8 in about a month. First pic was from last year sometime, the other 2 are from November...

They are gamers. Joe a bit more than Katlyn. But i came home one night last month from work and found him teaching her Memoir '44 .

Does this play with kids and how? Or is it just another Steve Jackson Games adult humor attempt?
