This might just be the perfect one shot group game!
It took me far to long for the pun penny to drop, but the game passed the ‘ranting to my partner about how we need to get a group together ASAP’ test with alacrity!
Includes a full write up of a playthrough of the game/ “replay” from Session Zero to completion (my new favorite thing in games), as well as the full breakdown of the rules and mechanics, Play-Aids and Card Decks, which can be printed and cut out or used in PDF form.
Charming in universe intro with reviews of the The GonParis Method.
The Replay is an absolute delight to read and really captures the fun and gameplay in an engaging and entertaining manner. It’s worth the asking price on its own! However, I am somewhat uncomfortable about a sapient creature being ‘loot’ in the example.
The is a six-step game encompassing, dealing with safety tools and tone, creating your band of adventures and the dungeon and boss you just vanquished, making up loot and generating its stats, acting out the exchange and bargaining of the loot, playing out the dangerous journey home, and finally, determining the satisfaction and fulfilment of the character’s lives based on their feelings towards their goodies.
The rules are simple to follow and well explained with all manner of improvising and fun to be had at every step and I am absolutely sold!
