#RPGaDAY 2017, Day 10: An Unexpected Gaming Experience

Today's #RPGaDAY topic is "An Unexpected Gaming Experience". This is actually last year's Day 10 topic, or rather, it was my take on Day 10's topic, which was "Largest In-Game Surprise Experienced", which wasn't all that interesting to me back then. This year it's supposed to be "Where Do You Find RPG Reviews", which is also... meh. A different unexpected gaming experience than last year: it was the last time I was at Gen Con, I believe.

Today's #RPGaDAY topic asks which roleplaying game's cover best captures the spirit of the game? (Technically, it was the day before yesterday's topic, but I'm travelling.) You know, I always liked the cover to Modiphius' Achtung! Cthulhu: Keeper's Guide to the Secret War. Why? Because our heroes are fleeing. It's also World War 2, and there's action happening! Behind enemy lines! It looks so good, and I particularly don't care for Cthulhu, Lovecraft, or the Mythos. But if I were to play in any Cthulhuesque game, that cover makes me want to try that one. I also love the title of the game: ACHTUNG! CTHULHU! Continue reading “#RPGaDAY 2017, Day 5: An RPG Cover That Best Reflects the Game” »...
