August 8 #RPGaDay2015 : Favorite appearance of RPGs in the Media

Eliot and his friends playing D&D in E.T. – it's what got me to talk my mom into buying me the magenta D&D box set from the Sears catalog in 1980.

August 5 #RPGaDay2015 : Most recent RPG purchase

The Undying rpg kickstarter just funded, so I guess that's my most recent purchase. I don't care much about running a vampire RPG, but a diceless version of the *World system is pretty damned interesting.

Getting caught up on #RPGaDay2015

August 1 : Forthcoming game you're most looking forward to

My daughter +Kaylee Testerman and I are both excited about the Legend of the Elements rpg, for reasons I believe will be obvious.

August 2 : Kickstarted game most pleased you backed

In terms of a kickstarter that's resulted in the most play-time for me, I think that probably has to be either the Fate kickstarter, or the one for Dungeon World. I've gotten more play out of Fate, though, so let's call that one the winner here.

August 3 : Favorite Game of the last 12 months

I'm saying Dungeon World here, even though it's not new to anyone but me and my daughter. It's still new for us, and fun, and that's enough for me.

August 4 : Most Surprising Game

That's Monster of the Week, which I really didn't expect to care about very much, and which I really, really like, and want to run.
