Re: SUN-01 Son of Mars Colony Mob

That's fascinating. I know Tim Koppang is out there somewhere reading this thread. Certainly common understanding of political parties will make the game better and that's a hurdle for any two people, though more so if they come from different nationalities. I think Ben and I used a fascist party in...

Re: SUN-03 The Chargen Circle

Traveller chargen was fun. Who hasn't heard of its (in)famous random character generation system in which your character can die before play? I'd never actually seen it though, and imagined massive tables and flowcharts, but it reality it was really quite modest. That you can get such a variety of ...

Re: SUN-01 Son of Mars Colony Mob

I had a great time playing Dr Kelly Perkins this time round. The dice were definitely favouring sixes during the game and some test rolling after confirmed they weren't entirely fair. Johnstone mentioned over on Story Games that he and you had the Canadian connection so could use the same political...

SUN-01 Son of Mars Colony Mob

Sunday morning. We went for coffee first. Ok, after coffee, we sat down to play Mars Colony. Johnstone ran in at the last minute so he paired up with Kynnin. I explained the rules - more difficult than it sounds for the Sunday morning, no sleep brain (thanks, Macklin) and I fear didn't sell the prem...

SUN-03 The Chargen Circle

It was the perfect way to wind down the weekend. A whirling dervish of chargen. I rolled a really bland colored (beige & grey) Maid with laser beam eyes and we rolled up a Space Castle with an atmospheric shield (it's space after all) and game room where you can take your clothes off. I'll leave Mik...

SAT-04 Microscope: The Age of Thought & the Catholic Church

Dale, James, Ping We set out to explore the stars and then find out why humanity declined and went extinct. However, James started us down this Catholic path (which I think resonated with all of us) and before we knew it, the church blew up Rome from the moon in order to re-consecrate the ground, re...

SAT-01 Geiger Counter: The Hotel California

Kingston David Matthew Ping The Hotel California is a virtual place where your mind goes when your body is sick or dying and waiting for a cure. It's utopia until the "system" starts to kill the guests. Thanks to everyone who played. Our setting was possibly too ambitious for a 4 hour (EDIT 3 hour )...

Re: FRI-01 Microscope

Thanks for playing, David. Thanks too to Melissa and Darin. It was an interesting story of space travel to through a mysterious 'box' that no one understood. I did not take a picture of the cards when they were in place sadly, and they are now all jumbled. I reconstructed it sorta, but I know it's o...

Re: Hugo House

Great to hear all this feedback, especially about Hugo being a good space (hurray!). Keep it coming. Sounds like Venus could really have benefited from the drinks moving out to a high traffic area. Every year is different especially in a new space, and once people get in and actually start using it,...
