You may organize the game in 2017, but actual game play must begin on or after 1 Jan 2018. You can join this geeklist any time, and all the new to you games you've played in 2018, 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.
A "play" is defined as either playing or GMing or participating in a GMless (or GMfull) game. Clarification: if you have run the game before and now get to play the game, it does not count toward this challenge. As running a game counts toward this challenge, it works the opposite way too: if you have ran it before, it is not a new to you game.
Using a core ruleset, but different modules or playsets counts only once (i.e. Fiasco, D&D, etc). If the 'RPG' (not 'RPG Item') has its own entry in the RPGG database, it counts as a new to you RPG.
VoIP games count.
PbF games started in 2018 count. The game must last at least for three months for it to count. It does not necessarily have to be completed in 2018, 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.
All those that are mainly doing this with PbF games: In order to claim your awarded microbadge for completing the challenge, you will need to geekmail me once you have played at least 5 games for at least three months (or to completion) each. This is because otherwise it will be too difficult for me to keep up with your progress.
Homebrews count, as long as they aren't just a bit houseruled existing systems, but completely another system.
Character creation sessions do not count toward this challenge.
Solo games count toward the challenge.
Anyone who completes the challenge will divide the pot evenly. I will throw in 300 GeekGold and anything tipped to this GeekList will also be part of the pot.
Bonus: 100 GeekGold to the person who plays the most games that are new to them. If more than one person ties, they split this pot.
I will be participating but am ineligible for all prizes.
How To Participate
Add an item to this list to indicate your intent to participate.
Whenever you play a new game, edit the item and give the name of the game, the date (or dates for a PbF) you played. If you want to talk a little bit about the circumstances and what you thought, great! But it's not necessary.
You do not have you say which five games you intend to play ahead of time. But if you want to indicate a couple games you're hoping to get in, great!
Everybody who participates will be awarded and will be awarded to all those complete the challenge.
