This is a hard question to narrow down. I need about eighteen thousand words and fifteen hours to write this one. Instead, I will be as brief as I can, listing each game I would love to play again and a brief reason why. So here goes, in no particular order.
In my mind, this 1980’s Australian classic still does superheroes better than any other system. I love a game about supers and so this is the one that I would love to play again.
Still my favourite version of Traveller. I am midway through running a series of adventures based on a Pink Floyd album (Momentary Lapse Of Reason). I would love to finish it to see how it turns out.
Stars Without Number/Silent Legions
This science-fiction game crossed with this compatible horror game is where I want to put my Cthulhu-esque horror future game. The systems are both from Sine Nomine and make a games masters (GM) life a dream.
This is a stretch for the “again” category. I did play Numenera once but hated the setting. I got the Cypher System rulebook and always wanted to play it again. The game is so super easy for a GM to run. I have purchased the Fall of the Gods setting book with some other stuff. Once that comes in maybe I will give it a run.
Lords of Gossamer and Shadow
This is seriously one of my favourite systems. I would love to be playing this regularly.
Links to buy them…
If you are keen to pick any of these games up I have some links. First, Super Squadron is only available in hard copy form from Australia here. I find the best way to buy Classic Traveller is via a CD that has all official books on it which can be grabbed here. The rest are available via Drive Thru RPG and I will simply list them by name and hyperlink their name to the product.

This says I roleplay too much! There are perhaps another five I could have listed but I have to draw the line. I love role playing way too much. I love investigating the game systems just as much. In combination, that means that I will always have a heap to say about this topic! Keep rolling… or not – depends on the game!
