Guidelines

d10-1 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.

d10-2 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.

d10-3 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.

d10-4 VoIP games count.

d10-5 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.

d10-6 Playtests count.

d10-7 LARP counts.

d10-8 Homebrews count, as long as they aren't just a bit houseruled existing systems, but completely another system.

d10-9 Character creation sessions do not count toward this challenge.

d10-0 Solo games count toward the challenge.

Prizes

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!

Exclusive Microbadges

Everybody who participates will be awarded mb and mb will be awarded to all those complete the challenge.

Here we go with 2018!

New games I would like to play this year:

d10-1 Trail of Cthulhu I have high hopes for playing this as I have a group of players already interested in playing.
d10-2 Cepheus Engine System Bit of a cheat (it's really Traveller) but I'd like to play a game using the rules to see just how different they are.
d10-3 Legend of the Five Rings (4th Edition) I'm a huge fan of this game (I have virtually all the books in hardback) but I've never played it.
d10-4 Basic Fantasy Role-Playing Game I've just ordered this from Lulu. Time to try some OSR goodness.
d10-5 The Dresden Files Roleplaying Game or Dresden Files Accelerated. Full version face to face or accelerated PbF.
d10-6 Atomic Robo
d10-7 Some form of Fate Core fantasy hack. A long shot that may be rolled over to 2019.

Games played:
d10-1 11/01/18 Victoriana (3rd Edition)

I dropped off the face of the RPGG map towards the end of the year (late congratulations to everyone who completed the 2017 challenge that I didn't get around to laugh) but this year I'm hoping to get back in the swing of things and of course, PbFs!

Wishlist:
An OSR something. I've read so much OSR content and like a lot of the concepts but I want to try playing one before running any of the adventures I have because I'm not sure I grok the style.

Possibilities:
Dungeon World
Everyone is John
Fool's Gold
Yuuyake Koyake
DramaSystem
Urban Shadows
Mortal Coil
Nefertiti Overdrive
Noirlandia
Ocean
One Last Job
Wicked Lies & Alibis

New Games Played:
1 Bluebeard's Bride - 29/1/17: Played 2 sessions but unfortunately had to call it quits before the conclusion.
2 InSpectres - PbF starting soon
3 The Shab Al-Hiri Roach - PbF starting soon
4 Protocol Game Series 01: Home - PbF starting Soon
5
6

God bless,
Kezle

After discovering this too late last year, I'll give it a shot this year.

It helps that I've been going to more conventions, so I'm already on my way.

d10-1Die Laughing, @ Midwinter Gaming Convention, Milwaukee, WI, on January 13, 2018. This was a beta and not in the RPGG database yet, but I'll edit in a link when it happens (I believe a Kickstarter is forthcoming). This is a story game wherein the players are archetypes in a horror-comedy movie (the jock, the nerd, the cheerleader, etc.), and a d20 roll determines what happens in the next "scene," with players taking turns as "director" of each scene. This was fun, and probably a blast with the right mix of people. Being a beta, there were definitely tweaks that could have been made, but overall, a good time. My cheerleader, like just about everyone, did not survive, nor did her beloved cat, Justin Bieber.

d10-2Legend of The Five Rings, Fifth Edition, same place, same day. This, too, was a beta. I've long admired the setting and was looking for a tonic to a lot of pure fantasy gaming that I had been doing that weekend, so this was just what I was looking for. It was basically the plot of The Warriors transposed to Rokugan, which was fine with me. I had a hard time grasping how to use the game's system of "stances" and found initiative a little hinky, but once I got the hang of the "Genesys" rules (and dice) it was relatively smooth. This session was a little rushed (lots of rules review, a hungover GM), but I'd definitely give it another try.

d10-3 Starfinder, @ Conflagration, Brookfield, WI, March 3, 2018. I had never played any of the -finder games, and so signed up for a Pathfinder session... which didn't have enough people, including a GM, so it was canceled. The Starfinder Society game at the next table took me in and humored me as I tried to figure out both the system (yes, I know it's a D&D 3.x variant, but still...) and the world--or worlds, as the case may be. This was a reality television-themed jaunt into a hollow moon for low-level characters, in which a zombie camera crew televised our adventure to a live audience that was more than eager to boo who they disliked and cheer for the "drama" among the "cast." Capitalizing on the theme, the GM even had us record "confessionals" that were played back for the rest of the table at the end of the game. Wish I hadn't been using a pregen, but not a bad intro to the system or world.

d10-4 The Dark Eye, 5th Edition, @ Gary Con, Lake Geneva, WI--can you tell where I live yet?, March 9, 2018. First exposure actually playing this game after backing a couple of the Kickstarters. It's pretty jarring going to this from more traditional games, since so much of it is counter to the familiar d20 games: rolling 3d20 for checks, trying to get the lower roll, seeing "INT" on a character sheet and it not meaning "Intelligence," etc. It's ultimately a pretty elegant system once you get past the alienness of it, but it definitely takes some work. Reminded me a bit of Ars Magica in terms of flavor and its insistence on deviating from typical fantasy settings. Our scenario (from the core book) involved... someone... cheating our party out of its hard-earned silver. Not to give it away, but we may have cornered the culprit in the center of a hay bale maze, which led to some exploding later, as is known to happen. An enthusiastically evangelical GM really helped sell this game.

d10-5

I'm in again this year!

d10-1 Cthulhu Dark (Revised Version) (1/24)
d10-2 Seppuku: Fury of the Samurai (1/30)
d10-3 Elysium Flare (2/1)
d10-4
d10-5

Here's a link to my 2018 play list for easy reference.

I hit 19 new RPGs last year, less than half of Orklord's winning 2017 total of 41. I'll see how far I can get this year. ninja

Good luck to everyone who is working on this challenge, and happy gaming!

Ok... getting on the board.

1. Parsely (Jan.) Forgot that I played this in my wife's narrative gaming class with Sean Nittner until I saw Parsely mentioned in one of the other threads.
2. Pulp Adventure (Feb 18) Played a terribly polite Valet to an LXG-style group of adventurers.
3. Hope Inhumanity (2nd Edition) (Mar. 10) Got this in after one our players needed to leave early from our usual RPG session. A tense and thoughtful game of survival. All of our characters lived... but one needed a field amputation with a fire ax to survive.
4. Murderous Ghosts (Mar. 15) Only 6 years or so after I got a copy of this I got it to the table. My new buddy Zach had a couple of hours to kill, and my son happened to be at preschool. Score!
5. Beyond Escape! (Mar. 28) Probably my first classic CYOA "play-through" since 8th grade. It was easier to get to a positive outcome than I remember. Also, it's still fun to explore after a few plays to see what the other possible story paths are.
6. Harry Potter Breakout (Basic Edition) (Apr. 4) A game I created with my 5-year-old son. The main mechanic is Handwriting. For Harry to cast a spell he has to write the first letter of the spell legibly. My son wanted to have dice in the game, so the roll of a d6 shows how powerful the spell is. (Rolling a 1 means we take a break... which was his idea.) Story cubes provide challenges/allies/prompts. Very excited to get him involved in actually writing!!!

Time to jump on board a little later than expected! I've been thinking about getting into solo RPGs, and want to make sure I don't let that goal fall by the wayside. A lot of these are on the lighter side and focused more on creative writing, yet one must start somewhere!

If all goes well, I might get into a meatier RPG later in the year. I'm excited to try all of these out and see what I've been missing out on. Good luck to all in the challenge!

After much debate and prevarication, I am joining the challenge. Since I am new to this form of gaming, I have no idea what path I am taking. I trust there will be gentle souls to guide me on the journey.

The Gentle Ladies' Tea and Monstrosity Destroying & Quilting Circle Auxiliary -- RPG Geek Play-by-Forum
Romeo and/or Juliet: A Chooseable-Path Adventure -- mini-campaign of 12 games started 14 February 2018; completed 18 February 2018.
Grey Flowers -- online RPG 7 March 2018 (don't ask).
Fiasco JP05: House Calls -- RPG Geek Play-by-Forum (substitute player)
Alice's Adventures Under the Table -- Parsely RPG at GameStorm, 7 April 2018;
Back in 5 Minutes -- -- Parsely RPG at GameStorm, 7 April 2018;
?????

?????

Since I am new to this, I'm uncertain what may or may not count toward this challenge, especially as a primarily solo gamer. I have, for example, downloaded Romeo and/or Juliet: A Chooseable-Path Adventure with intent to play through. I have thought I might like to apply some dice or card draws to re-reading Hopscotch. (And the RPGGeek dice rolling applet might make that a breeze!)

There are some concepts about which I have read that intrigue me, but ...

Here we go!
