    Scott thanks for organizing and Aaron for GMing. Renee and I had a great time!

      I'm glad. We should definitely keep doing this. There are so many games to try... B-)

    It was really fun. The game we played got really weird really quickly but it was still enjoyable and would like to do it again, maybe with a different game though (like shinobigami).

    I had a great time trying out Annalise. Looking forward to the next one!

    We were the last to leave. We took the jRPG, tissues and poker chip that were left. Fun time. Thanks for setting up, Scott.

      I'll get the JRPG from you next I see you (I assume it's mine!). When would that be?

      November 10, 2012

  • Scott

    Had a great time. Thanks everyone!

    Man I so want to come to this, but I can't. Can we have another one of these soon?

      I think we should definitely do it again, but we are almost to Thanksgiving and holidays. Not sure how soon another one could be.

      For me January would probably be the next available month.

    I'll bring 3:16, Monsterhearts and Smallville. Interested in playing Drama System and Microscope.

    November 4, 2012

    • Scott A J.

      Scott- I'll try to get the stuff together for it on Sat and go over the rules but since it's two of the potential GMs that seem most interested it might be better doing as a separate meet up.

      November 8, 2012

    • Scott

      That's probably fair. I'd hate to tie up all the GMs in our own fun.

      November 9, 2012

  • mike

    i'll bring Fiasco next you do this.

    November 6, 2012

  • Scott A J.

    Can we get an idea what games people are most interested in? With 11 people it looks like 2-3 games? 

    I'd like to be in the same game as my wife. I'm most interested in trying out Monsterhearts. My second choice is Fiasco which I can facilitate (help people learn the rules etc, the game doesn't have a GM)  I'll bring a few playsets some straightforward ones and some weird ones.

    • Michael L.

      I own, have read, but have not played annalise yet. I can bring it and the stuff to do it.

      November 5, 2012

  • Michael L.

    I'll bring Microscope and Annalise. I want to play them and/or Dungeon World

    November 4, 2012

  • Scott

    I'll probably bring some Atomic Robo RPG pre-gens.

    November 4, 2012

  • Scott

    I'd be happy to play Monsterhearts or Smallville. I'm also available to run Dungeon World.

    November 4, 2012

  • Michael L.

    I enjoyed DW at dragon con, would be interested again

    Microscope is a lot of fun

    Fiasco is cool, but I'd like to try others.

    Dirty Secrets is eh IMO.

    Annalise sounds really fun though (http://www.flamesrising.com/annalise-game-review/)

    Games on Demand has been a feature at GenCon for a while. This year it just exploded though. I ran it a for few years when no one would step forward to organize it. I'm so glad that some great people have stepped up to run it lately.

    November 3, 2012

  • Scott A J.

    Scott you ran Story Games at Gen Con? I had a great time playing Fiascoe with Steve Segedy (I think... it was someone from Bully Pulpit). That event was a great addition to Gen Con and I hope they do it next year.

    What setting is Universalis set in?

    November 2, 2012

    • Scott

      Its also really built for more long term play. It's interesting to try out for a one shot but it's not really built for it.

      I have run more one shots of Universalis than long term, but that be due to the other players' feelings. It feels like all players are GMs and some people prefer the experience of being a PC.

      November 3, 2012

  • Scott

    Everyone please bring a game or two if you are willing to run something. We may have enough response that the original 3 who volunteered may not be enough. If you let me know what game you are bringing I'll also update the event description so everyone knows what games are available.

    November 3, 2012

    • Scott

      We now have 4 potential GMs. If you are bringing a game just let me know and I'll add it to the list.

      November 3, 2012

  • Ted S.

    How many GMs have agreed to run games for this particular day? Specifically what games are they going to run?

    November 2, 2012

    • Scott

      Someone offered to run Monsterhearts as listed above over on StoryGames but I'm not sure if he's signed up over here yet.

      November 3, 2012

    • Scott

      Each bullet point above is a GM volunteering to run those games.

      November 3, 2012

  • Scott A J.

    My wife is coming too.

  • Joe J.

    What exactly is 3: 16?

    November 1, 2012

    • Scott

      Its a simple and fast space combat rpg kind of like Starship Troopers.

      November 1, 2012

    • Brian H.

      Space RPG? Hello, sign me up!!!!

      November 2, 2012

  • Imani M.

    Interested in playing Shinobigami again and trying Ryuutama, though what is the other JRPG prospect (wants it to be Tokyo NOVA but knows that is highly unlikely :( )

    November 1, 2012

    • Matt

      To be honest, I'd need a high amount of interest (and time) to run Tokyo Nova. If you can help me set up a special day just for TN, I'd be glad to run it! Let's discuss it next time I see you if nobody expresses interest for 11/10.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
