In 2014 & 2015 we saw an effort by many RPG Geek denizens to participate in the Play 5 New to You RPGs challenge. We took this idea and turned it on its head for the second year in a row! Once again, I challenge you to run or facilitate 5 RPGs you have never run or facilitated before. Yes, you heard me, get out there and this time you get to be the gamemaster! We encourage folks to look first at their game shelves and hard drives for games they already own. If by chance you decide to buy a new book or PDF, don't let it collect dust, run it! This challenge serves several purposes. First, it serves to bring gamers together! Second, it helps us all get games played that might otherwise just sit, unloved and abandoned. Third, it encourages us all to run or facilitate games instead of just being a player and hopefully this will open up even more opportunities for us all to game!


Rules:
d10-1 You may organize the game in 2015, but actual game play must begin on or after 1 Jan 2016.
d10-2 Games may be VoIP, PbF or face-to-face.
d10-2.d10-1 PbF games count as long as the game starts after you post on the geeklist. The game must last at least for three months for it to count. It does not necessarily have to be completed in 2015, though. If you have played a game as a PbF game before, but it has lasted less than three months before fizzling out, it doesn't count as a game you've played before. So if you get to play this game again, but this time for at least three months, you can count it toward the challenge. If you play in a PbF game that plays into completion in less than three months, that game will of course count toward the challenge, despite it lasting less than three months.
d10-3 You may run or facilitate a game you have played before. This includes GM-less games so long as you were not the facilitator when you played it.
d10-4 Using a core ruleset, but running different modules or playsets counts only once (i.e. Fiasco, D&D, etc)
d10-5 If the RPG system is listed in the RPGG database as an RPG it counts for purposes of our challenge
d10-6 System hacks (i.e. Apoc World or Fate Core) count as individual entries for this challenge.
d10-7 Playtest games do count!
d10-8 Use this geeklist to keep a record of your awesome accomplishments!
d10-9 By adding a placeholder to this geeklist you are taking this challenge. No games run before the date your entered the challenge will count.

Fun Stuff:
d10-1 Everyone likes a little avatar bling so we will have some sweet microbadges Microbadge: 2016 RPGG GM challenge participant Microbadge: I took the 2016 RPGG GM challenge and ran 5 games Microbadge: I took the 2016 RPGG GM challenge and ran 10 games Microbadge: I took the 2016 RPGG GM challenge and ran 20 games Microbadge: I took the 2016 RPGG GM challenge and ran 30 games
d10-2 Any Geek Gold earned by the end of 2016 will be given to the top 5 GMs, ties will be decided by the geek roller.

I will be participating, but will be ineligible for any !

WINNERS!

Each earned 120 bag

6. RPG Item: Monster of the Week (Revised) [Average Rating:8.14 Overall Rank:157]
RPG Item: Monster of the Week (Revised)
I'm pretty sure most every new thing I run will be GMless (I caught the story game bug late in 2015 and have not shaken it since). But PbtA games and Fate Core are my two current loves when there needs to be a GM, so here go my new year's resolutions:

I resolve to run:
d10-1 Monster of the Week - done!
d10-2 tremulus (read once, never played)
d10-3 Night Witches (read often, played once)
d10-4 Questlandia (read once, never played)
d10-5 A Penny for My Thoughts (read once, never played)

I might run different games (if there needs to be a GM, I prefer Fate Core or PbtA, e.g. Mindjammer, Urban Shadows, Atomic Robo, Sagas of the Icelanders, or some such). Contact me on G+ if you'd like to play any of the above with me: https://goo.gl/5Y8Vak

Games I actually ran:
d10-1 Microscope Explorer (Chronicle - I had only played plain Microscope so far)
d10-2 "Old Friends" (Micro-LARP playtest)
d10-3 Mindjammer (2nd Edition) (Started a Micro-Campaign, enjoying it very much)
d10-3 Monster of the Week (Revised) Ran it for my regular group of gamers on Jan 30th, now playing in an online group myself. Very enjoyable system, and still very much dependent on the MC for tone and fun.

Four down, one to go! cool

Planning to run
More Cheat Your Own Adventure. Not new to me.
Maid: The Role-Playing Game. Not new to me, but not done it in PbF yet.
D&D 5th. Same situation.
Atomic Highway. New to me, will be PbF

So far then, looks like I'll get 1/5
Getting to 5 will be a struggle, but it'll be good to try

Yup... getting in on the ground floor this year.

1. Action Movie World: First Blood (Feb 6)
2. Last Days of Disco* (June 5)
3. Might Makes Reich (aka 100 Clones) (June 26)**
4. Atomic Highway (July 17)
5. The Cloud Dungeon (August 22)***
6. Noirlandia (Oct 20)

*This implements the card mechanics and re-themes the narrative prompts from The Death of the Gilded Age. June 5 represents an alpha playtest for the game, which when published will be its own RPG Item.
**Playtest of a Beta release for Slade Stolar's pulpy WWII game where you kill Hitler clones.

Hi Geeks,

Awesome challenge!

I hereby pick up the gauntlet and pledge myself to running five new games. I currently weave Interludes into our on-going HeroQuest 2 campaign. Hopefully, I can make enough of them new games to complete this challenge.

New Games
1 - Fiasco, 6th Feb, 4-Player Interlude
2 - Microscope, 12th March, 2-Player game
3 - HeroQuest Glorantha, campaign upgrade 23rd July, Plays x14
4 - Puppetland, Halloween one-shot, 29th Oct
5 - Savage Worlds, Christmas one-shot, 24th Dec

Furthermore, I will also take this opportunity to track all the RPGs I run this year. I know this is not what the challenge is all about, but it would be great to have them all listed together.

Okay, off to a flying start with the "old" games run in 2016:
1 - HeroQuest 2 my ongoing campaign x10
2 - Heroes of the Falling Star, Beta Playtest version, the "talking game" I play with my young sons, x2
3 - DramaSystem, a one-shot Interlude with four new Players, and four regular Players, plus a second relationship web session devoted to creating backstory for the Fortress of Crows.
4 - Basic D&D, Mentzer Edition, in response to demands from the boys. Two character creation sessions and a short foray into a tomb, so far.

Wow, made it, but only just. This was fun, but not sure if I could keep up the pace through another year.

Happy Gaming
Phil

I jump in on this one. I love games that use the "Powered by the Apocalypse" system but yet I have never run the game that started it all. I'm sure I can squeeze in some of games I have yet to run.

d10-5 Dungeons & Dragons (5th Edition)

d10-6 Call of Cthulhu (7th Edition)

I am excited to be a part of this as I am often guilty of complaining about not getting to run enough games rather than just getting on and running them. Might not quite get to 5 with a baby on the way in June but I'll see what I can do!

This year I shall run TEN! 10 new games! (lightning strike, thunder rolls) Ah ah ah!

d10-1 Dread 2/20/16
d10-2 7th Sea (Second Edition) 3/12/16
d10-3 Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls 7/08/16
d10-4 Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game 10/08/16
d10-5 Traveller (Mongoose 2nd Edition) 12/06/16
d10-6 Atomic Robo 12/15/16

And that's probably it for this year! I didn't get my 10, but I managed to make five, five new games, ah ah ah.

Retroactively edited to six new games - Mongoose Traveller 2nd edition was re-classified as a distinct RPG from the original Mongoose Traveller in February of 2017, so technically a new game to GM.

18. RPG Item: Ghost Lines [Average Rating:6.73 Overall Rank:4193]
RPG Item: Ghost Lines
Last year I unfortunately ran out of time for PbF games and fell short of five games. This year, it will probably be a late start because time is still an issue but I'm still going for at least five.

New games I have run in 2016:
d10-1 Wings of Time (IC Thread)
d10-2
d10-3
d10-4
d10-5

Games I'm thinking about running (almost certainly as a PbF):
Ghost Lines
The Mustang
Atop a Lonely Tower
Ghosts Like Us
Any The Sundered Land game
Wicked Lies & Alibis
Welcome Minions
Watch the World Die
Who's Dinner

Alas, not going to make it this time. But there is always next year!

God bless,
Kezle

I'll take a crack at this. I have tons of games (in pdf form mostly) that I've been dying to try. This is as good an excuse as any.

I'm not sure yet what games I'll run, though. I have decided on three for certain:

1) Exalted 3rd Ed.;
2) Numenera;
3) Harry Potter V6 (a hack of the V6 system of Atomic Highway to the Harry Potter setting) -- Don't feel bad if you've never heard of it. I wrote it.

I think I'll throw the choice of the other two on the mercy of potential players. Due to technical limitations/lack of equipment on my part I'll be running everything face to face, though; sorry to potential online players.

In.

Out of curiosity, I will keep track of the gender and race of the main designers of the games I run.

Edit: Oh, okay, here are some games I hope to run this year: Lady Blackbird, A Thousand and One Nights: A Game of Enticing Stories (2012 Edition), Numenera, Splittermond Einsteigerbox - Aufbruch ins Abenteuer, Thou Art But A Warrior (Second Edition), Fate Accelerated, and some roleplaying poems. I'm foreseeing that I will maybe run two of these, and several games not listed here (some of which I haven't heard of yet).

d10-1 Fall of Magic (2016-02-17)
d10-2 Republic Serial (2016-05-11)
d10-3 A Real Game (2016-08-29)
d10-4 The Beast (2016-08-27 until -09-16)
d10-5 Heroes of the Hearth (2016-09-29)

Designers (and their race/ gender to the best of my knowledge):
Ross Cowman (white, male)
Piers Beckley (white?, male)
Caitlynn Belle (white, female)
Aleksandra Sontowska & Kamil Węgrzynowicz (both white?, female & male)
Stiainín Jackson (white, female)

Well, I totally scratched on this in 2015 (because real life), but I have a good feeling about 2016.

1. Apocalypse World (2nd ed) Isis and Osiris [Mature] pbf 2/26 - 9/14 (completed)
[IC Thread] [OOC Thread] [characters]

(I feel a bit silly claiming AW 2nd ed. as a different game than AW 1st ed., but I saw the official ruling that it is upthread and I may need it, so I'm going to. But I'm going to try to not need it.)

2. Call of Cthulhu (7th Edition) Curse of the Yellow Sign, Act I: Digging for a Dead God [Mature] pbf 4/20 - ??? (abandoned)
[pitch] [OOC] [IC]

2. The Quiet Year The Dual Quiet Years pbf 5/6 - 7/30 (completed)
[OOC] [The Coast (IC)] [The Mountains (IC)]

3. Unspeakable Curse of the Yellow Sign, Act I: Digging for a Dead God f2f 8/11/16

4. The Deep Forest pbf 9/20/16 - ???
[IC] [OOC]

5. Monster of the Week Bright Lights, Groom Lake pbf 9/24/16 - ???
[IC] [OOC] [characters]

And now I just need to wait for 3 months on the last two pbfs. I also expect to get one more in before the end of the year so that I won't need to count AW 2nd ed.

6. Atop a Lonely Tower An Island Tower pbf 10/23/16 - 11/2/16 (complete)
[game thread]

And I now have 5 past three months, so challenge is complete.
