#RPGaDAY 2016, Day 12: The Next Game

The actual title of today's prompt is "What game is your group most likely to play next?" That question makes a few assumptions, the foremost being that one plays in a single group. Take a look at Rich Rogers. Inferring from his posts about gaming and invitations to game (or watch one being streamed), I don't think he actually has a game group, just a whole bunch of gamer friends that come together to play stuff for a few sessions and then back to the pool.

Here's the thing: When I've attended Gen Con, I haven't gone for the games. Teenage me would be shocked. Teenage me always wanted to attend Gen Con ((Lake Geneva was just a three hour drive away!)), but I never made it out there. Four days of gaming goodness and I, at most, play three different games.
