How many RPGs do you own that you've never played?
Posted by Scott Malthouse
Do you have a stack of games you've never played? I know I have.
Seriously, what is it with us gaming types that makes us buy tonnes of games and never getting around to playing them? I own too many to count that I haven't played yet. Here's a list off the top of my head:
Doctor Who RPG (Cubicle 7 version)
All Flesh Must Be Eaten
Exalted 2nd Ed
Harnmaster 3rd ed
Spears of the Dawn
Spirit of the Century
Stars Without Number
Wild Talents 2nd ed
There are lots more, but you get the picture. What about you, how many do you own that you've never played? Is there a game you've been itching to try out but have never got around to it?
Maybe that should be a New Year's resolution: to play at least 10 games I own but have yet to play. I might cheat a bit and say that using Mythic GME counts but it's got to be a full session or a series of them.
Will I buy more before I play the ones I have? Only hell yes. I have a bunch of account credit piling up on DriveThruRPG that's going to go on a new stack of things. You only have yourselves to blame for that because you're the ones buying my stuff (thanks for that, by the way).
Anyway, tell me about your unused stack. Are you going to take the resolution with me?
