Tabletop QOTD 2020-04-15

Borrowing from the idea of the Pluspora Check-in get some tabletop conversation going. If you have any questions that you want to get on the list to be asked, let me know. Also, if you'd like to be added or taken off the list of participants, let me know.

If while playing a game you come across a rule that's either unclear or broken, how do you handle it during that play?

The answer is the same for me for both #Boardgames and #RPG - unless it's debilitating or will completely make the game not fun, play through the best that we can, and figure it out later. If it's something that we can't play through, then if it's an RPG and I'm GMing, I'll just make a ruling and figure it out later. If it's a boardgame, if someone has a strong opinion, that's usually it for the night- the conversations take so long that we end up never getting back to the game.

Tabletop QOTD 2020-04-13

Borrowing from the idea of the Pluspora Check-in get some tabletop conversation going. If you have any questions that you want to get on the list to be asked, let me know. Also, if you'd like to be added or taken off the list of participants, let me know.

What percentage of the time do you play the same games vs trying something new?

Most of the times for #BoardGames and #RPGs we just play the same things. I'd love to try new games, but in general, when we try a new boardgame, we never get through with it, and never pick it up again. As far as RPGs, I only play online, and though those were new when we started, the campaigns are all several years old.
