I did not even realise that this was out and about in the wild this year. Such is the damage that losing Google Plus has created. I found out about it because a creator tagged me in one of his posts because of a review I did on his game. That was yesterday and for the past eighteen hours or so I have been debating on if I would take part. I do love this idea and I much prefer the new format that they are taking. One word prompts. So, I know I will be tired at the end of this, especially seeing I have to make up ten posts already, but I hope there are still some of you that will visit and make it all worthwhile! Now on to the first.
The first game I ever ran was a game of Dungeons and Dragons out of the red basic box in the ’80s. I had been exposed to the game by my cousin who was designing a game for his group and the map fascinated me. He also showed me Steve Jackson’s Car Wars so I have a lot to thank him for. My first game was in Grade 6 at Yolla District High School so it would have been 1985. One of my friends had bought the red box set and he did not know how to play. I didn’t either but I said I did so I said I would run a game for them. He gave me the books to prepare and I devoured it in a single sitting and we played a game the next day.
From there I wanted my own games but I did not have much money when I was growing up. So I bought the indie/cheap games. I think that is why I am so welcoming of alternative games. It is why I love trying new systems and settings. So there you have it my first game laid out. The lie that I totally knew how to play out in the open thirty years after the act. I totally appreciate the loan of the game and the career it has sent me on! Keep rolling!
