Description Edit | History

Publisher's blurb:

Your Best Game Ever is not your typical RPG sourcebook. It’s not a book with adventures, spells, creatures, or magic items. It’s not a book for characters at all, but a book for players! If you play or run roleplaying games, this book is for you. Inside this gorgeous hardcover book, suitable for your coffee table or your gaming table, you will find advice and suggestions for enhancing your RPG experience at the table and away from it. This is an insider’s look at everything that goes into the hobby—finding a group, making a character, running a game, creating adventures, finding all the right ideas, hosting a game... and that’s just for starters.

[Hardcover: rear blurb]

A tool book, not a rulebook - for everyone who plays or runs tabletop roleplaying games

You’ve got the rules down pat. Your setting is awesome. Your adventure is all ready to go. But how do you turn all of that into a fantastic game session your group will remember and talk about for years to come? How do you build a group that really clicks, create beloved and memorable characters, and craft stories that become the stuff of legend?

Your Best Game Ever, by acclaimed roleplaying game designer Monte Cook and more than a dozen seasoned contributors, gives you an insider’s look at everything that isn’t part of the game rules: building chemistry in your gaming group, making a character you will love and remember forever, running engaging and exciting games yourplayers will always look forward to, creating thrilling adventures, finding the right ideas, hosting memorable game nights… and that’s just for starters.

Whether you’re new to RPGs or a veteran gamer, whether you’re a game master or a player, whatever your game system of choice, you can make every game Your Best Game Ever!

More Information Edit | History

Not a Rule Book, But a Tool Book
Your Best Game Ever is divided into three major sections: general game topics, being a player, and being a game master. There’s even a section on designing your own game, and getting it published. And this isn’t just a stuffy book on theory, either. You’ll find actual suggestions you can use to create better characters with character arcs, real recipes you can make for game night (and even spruce them up for your genre of choice), specific suggestions for music and ambiance depending on genre, plot ideas, character ideas, and other ready-to-use material.

This 192-page book will enable you to become a better gamer. You’ll find ways to create and manage a great game group, tricks for game prep (and what to do if you haven’t prepared!), understanding and managing game balance, and taking everything around you and incorporating it as inspiration for your game.

The Kickstarter launched on 24th July 2018 and also includes a brand new, revised 416-page Cypher System Rulebook. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/montecookgames/your-best-game-ever/
