this might be impossible. you gotta do it. 

The distilled essentials of gaming. 

Fucking phenomenal magical-girls-overturn-their-masters game. 

A stunning take on BoB gameplay. Each player has two playbooks, and use tarot cards to activate Moves. I especially liked how neutral moves are how you flip cards between being upright and reversed. 

Love this! Also, I think that The Boss is just a very tall goblin with a cape who runs around after the other, toothy goblins.

I went FUCKING WILD over the implied setting from the word go; this games opens with describing what investigators are and the role they play in a consensus society with no kings or cops; traveling Weird Little Guys who're called in to help figure out what happened before the community itself decides what to do. 

The actual gameplay is very cool too: in act 1 every player gets chances to frame scenes where the detectives make discoveries, while using some really cool abilities. Then in act 2 everyone gets a chance to put together an explanation of what happened, structured by a blackjack-esque card game. 

Think battleship could be a bit more involved? Interested in learning bat facts? Want to try out weird pickup lines??? This game is for you. 

An amazing game for witches out in the middle of nowhere, where to be a witch is to be an overworked "doer of the grimly necessary." Opening by describing the GM-player relationship instead as "an asymmetrical, cooperative game" gives it a slightly different tone that I think is followed through on well with the option to voluntarily fail an action. 

With a light hand, it paints a stark world I'm excited to explore. There are a few touches that remind me of the Discworld witches, but the game does not share that setting.

I love the items you included in character creation! 

ALL the community/nature/gender-fucked feels. I love this.

I keep returning to this. It's such a good distillation of these ideas in a design context, while remaining more broadly applicable. 

(And sometimes you just want a fucking philosophy essay about how everyone is being cyborgs.)

Every single game in here is both eminently playable and dense with thought-provoking ideas about living in better worlds.

You know that scene where all the characters are being interrogated separately, and the camera cuts between them and they're contradicting and backing each other up? 

Something weird just happened that you can't quite remember and all fundamentally disagree about. Now you're being interrogated and playing the interrogators in turn. 

I am feeling unexpected Emotions. A+ game. 

This sure is a game that's happening to my eyes. I love it; the game is sweet, and it has hella Vibes. I think I'm gonna print the black and white version and find a box of crayons. 

This is such a clever mechanic for both player-focused world-building, and generating dynamic character relationships focused on external objects or actions.

Provides a fantastic case for why you want to build a meta-sport-game, and then some great advice on what to consider in making something distinct that still fits within the RPG.

A wonderfully considered game wherein you construct a magical sword. Excellent both as a game itself, and to generate the story behind a magical sword. 

Wow, what a clever mechanic! I love the way it makes pushing a character's luck  feel immediate and risky by tying it to leaving a scene. 

A crazy-radical interpretation of mermaids! I love the focus on both the excitement and obligation to build and maintain their environment. 

Incredibly concise, and with a great tactile element (that can be translated to work online). 

You've got time travel going into this heist, and the ability to split the timeline into alternate branches, but you have to worry about alerting your target or damaging the timeline. 

I still, months later, regularly think about this game. It's so deeply compelling I feel moved to play it more often than I ever expected. 

A timeless classic. 

A fun game of storytelling with hidden motives, framed by the trope of "pulling out a pile of weapons when disarming". 

A bold and provocative response to the World's Greatest RPG*. 

The deliberate physicality of casting spells and the intentional and explicit antagonism of the GM role (though not the person-playing-GM) combine to make this an amazing game. 

This game system is honestly inspired. So simple, yet so powerful, the decision of "how many fingers" depending on what you want, versus what you think the GM will do... Absolutely deserves to be hacked. 

On one side, a fun game about talking with and caring for fellow pokemon. On the other, a vivid depiction of the ills haunting current pokemon healthcare. 

A tangle of relationships, in a game played across two different times? Sign me up. And that's before mentioning the simple resolution mechanic which encourages hopping back and forth to see what's happening in both whens!

A Simple World style game with some tasty traits and a bit of crunch in the combat system. Light paranormal elements, which the table can season with to taste. 

A fantastic supplement to any game, outlining how to generate strange creatures, and giving you ways for players to interact with them.

A lightweight game you can play any time you've got dice. Simple character creation and easy resolution mechanics make this easy to play with anyone, anywhere. 

Just enough nudge to make remembering the importance of reviews fun, with a mechanic that means the longer you play, the more you'll want to leave reviews!

A system-agnostic setting pamphlet. You and your friends are giants trying to run these pesky Aesir out of our town, without getting in too much trouble! 

I love this game! 

Minor note: When playing it, we used grave dirt instead of mummy wrappings since that seemed pretty sketchy. 

Absolutely breathtaking. Begins with a short essay on morality and choices that I already know I'm going to come back to again and again. 

Not only shows how to make a colossal beast truly seem huge in a game, but also discussed why decisions were made, which gave me a greater appreciation for how things work. 

And, youknow, gorgeous art and amazing layout. 

I paid for this game, and it was totally worth it. Even reading through the dice table was fun and interesting? Totally made me want to go find a d12!

I really enjoyed reading this well-considered game. However, I noticed that the second page of both of the "accuser" handouts says that "the priest is a Witch." (at the end of the first paragraph on the right side). Although the text of the motivations on each "accuser" handout match the gender of the witch, I wondered if there were any other differences on the "accuser's" second page besides that one line. 

How did you break into my childhood and steal these thoughts out of my past?
