#RPGaDay 5: Most Recent Purchase

Well. Because I only bought board and card games at GenCon, this answer is a little silly given yesterday’s post about larping at GenCon. See, on Tuesday before GenCon, I bought the ebook version of Cthulhu Live 3rd Edition, just so I wouldn’t have to carry the paperback with me, in case I thought I might need it at the con (I didn’t).

153922On Wednesday, I acquired (pay what you want… I paid $0, because cheapskate) the Just A Game playtest packet (Luke Green), though, so I will talk about that. Also, the Kickstarter for 14 Days finished ($8), but I don’t have it in hand yet.

Just a Game is a campaign framework for running a "trapped in the game" style RPG campaign. Like Sword Art Online or .hack. It could even be for running a "trapped in a tabletop RPG" campaign, like the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon.

The playtest packet has three variations– a Fate version, Gumshoe version, and Powered by the Apocalypse version. Because I run all three systems, I’m really excited about playtesting this game. I’m already talking to a friend about running it as "Trapped in Minecraft" for his 9 year old daughter. Which means, even though it’s not a #RPGaDay category, my "next video game purchase" is probably going to be Minecraft….
