Beginning in 2014 we saw a huge 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 third 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, Lastly, it encourages community involvement and growth!


Rules:
d10-1 You may organize the game in 2016, but actual game play must begin on or after 1 Jan 2017. You can join this geeklist any time, and all the new to you games you've played in 2017, will count regardless of when you posted your entry in this geeklist. However, I would like to encourage everyone to post their entry early in the year, just to get more discussion going on.
d10-2 Games may be VoIP, PbF or face-to-face.
d10-2.d10-1 PbF games count even if they were started before joining this challenge. Games must have started in 2017 and must last at least two months for it to count. It does not necessarily have to be completed in 2017, though. If you run in a PbF game that plays to completion in less than two months, that game will of course count toward the challenge, despite it lasting less than two months. If you record a PBF game as started and for whatever reason is fizzles out before two months it doesn't count.
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. If the game is new and not yet in the database, please submit it for inclusion and contact me.
d10-6 System hacks (i.e. Apoc World or Fate Core) count as individual entries for this challenge.
d10-7 Playtest games do count! Please indicate that it is a playtest game.
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.

Fun Stuff:
d10-1 Everyone likes a little avatar bling so we will have some sweet microbadges
Microbadge: 2017 RPGG GM challenge participant Microbadge: I took the 2017 RPGG GM challenge and ran 5 games Microbadge: I took the 2017 RPGG GM challenge and ran 10 games Microbadge: I took the 2017 RPGG GM challenge and ran 20 games Microbadge: I took the 2017 RPGG GM challenge and ran 30 games
d10-2 Any Geek Gold earned by the end of 2017 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 !

6. RPG: HeroQuest Glorantha [Average Rating:8.27 Overall Rank:149]
RPG: HeroQuest Glorantha
Hi,

Joining this Challenge for another year. Achieving five new games might be a lot harder for the second year, but I like being pushed as a GM. As with my 2016 contribution, I will track both new games and old games here.

New games for 2017:
d10-1 Role vs Roll cards, added a meta-game challenge for the Players. These cards provide Heroes with random goals, to resolve in-game. Note this probably does not meet the official rules for a new game, but as a sub-game within the main story arc, it has added another layer for the Players. 1-4-17 x4
d10-2 Dugneon World: as an extended interlude while the Heroes travel out of Ulubrae on a quest. 29-4-17, x4
d10-3 14 Days, minor hack to run this as an "off camera" sub-game for the Hero booked into a Sanatorium, 8-7-17, x4
d10-4 The Happiest Apocalypse on Earth Halloween interlude, brainstorming & char-gen session 21-10-17, game x1
d10-5

Old games for 2017:
1 Basic D&D - Legend of Dragons story arc with young sons. They are starting to show enthusiasm for D&D, and I am finally playing with both sons, x4
2 Microscope - campaign brainstorming session, x1
3 HeroQuest Glorantha - pre-campaign brainstorming & character generation x3, main story arc x22, Interlude x1
4 DramaSystem - character creation process to create a relationship web, x3
5 Fiasco - brainstorming the founding of the dwarven city, and why there is a troll shrine buried there, x1

The Shadows of Ulubrae story arc is running with Flux in the background, taken from John Wick's Big Book of Little Games. My version of this meta-game connects the Heroes to previous incarnations of those Heroes run by the same Player. This is more akin to Michael Moorcock's Eternal Champion concept. However, so far none of the Players has invoked this meta-game, so I do not feel I can add it to my achievements for 2017. Once again, I must remind the Players about Flux.

Meanwhile, the Players enjoyed The Happiest Apocalypse on Earth as our Halloween special game. Planet Albion proved a suitably sinister English setting for the game. Indeed, the Players had so much fun that we plan to return next session. I only need to run a Christmas special with a new set of rules to make my quota, unless somebody can be persuaded to invoke Flux.

Happy Gaming

Phil

Bit harder than the "play 5 new to you" challenge, but I hope to make it again!

my entry on the "play 5" challenge list

d10-1 Numenera 2017-03-22, F2F
d10-2 Bäronomicon (Unpublished Prototypes) playtest 2017-04-08, F2F (Gratisrollenspieltag)
d10-3 Honey Heist 2017-06-21, F2F
d10-4
d10-5

2017-06-23: The challenge is definitely harder for me this year, since my choir is taking up so much time. Also, the fact that - in theory - I'm playing regularly with friends in an ongoing game (previously Dungeon World, now we want to start with Numenera) keeps me from trying a lot of one-shot rpgs that are new to me. I guess it's still doable, but compared to earlier years in which I could run a dozen new games the change is significant for me. (Not complaining, just observing.)

Let's give it a go again.

1 City of Mists (Gauntletcon - Oct 2017)
2 Icons (December 2017)
3
4
5
6

Some games I hope to run:
Epyllion so my daughter has played No Thank You Evil, Numenera, and D&D 5e. This one will probably be next.
World of Dungeons
Dread Had to cancel my convention game last october. Maybe this year.

*EDIT* Only two new games in 2017. Icons went great. I kind of botched the end on the CoM game. Hopefully 2018 will have more.

I'll give this a try. I'd love to play Cheat Your Own Adventure again (so why not facilitate a game of it), and the Fate of the Flying Temple book is on my shelves gathering dust, so... here's hoping that joining the challenge will give me that little nudge needed to get playing again.

This sounds like a fun challenge, I've got an existing Call of Cthulhu adventure I'm wrapping up (the Time to Harvest OP adventure) as well as a WFRP3 campaign I've been meaning to get back to for years now. Despite those two, I still have so much unplayed stuff on my shelves, so it's time to try and get them off!

No idea yet what games, let's see what comes up!

Update 2017/02/09: Cthulhu Confidential Core Rulebook
RPG Item: Cthulhu Confidential Core Rulebook

I've been keen to try out Gumshoe 121 since I first heard about it a couple of years ago. Picked up my prerelease copy at Dragonmeet and one of my regular RPG crew was also keen. We're running this slightly differently, as an online game but in a Google Doc, so we can both go in and edit it whenever we have the spare time. Probably more like collaborative novel writing with some occasional dice rolling than an RPG but I like where it's going so far.

25. RPG Item: Urban Shadows [Average Rating:7.93 Overall Rank:444]
RPG Item: Urban Shadows
My friends and I have started biweekly roleplaying and it's done wonders for this challenge.

So far this year:

1Urban Shadows
2Masks: A new generation
3Dynasty - Who Will Rule the Empire
4


I also ran To the Temple of Doom! To Stop the Ancient Evil (one of ours). It's not in the database so, doesn't count.

Upcoming:
- Probably Sig
- Probably a western game. I've never run one before. Any suggestions for a roleplaying heavy group?
- Probably numenera
