The number of people playing Dungeons & Dragons (as well as many other RPG's) is growing every day . Many of those people look for a way to say thank you to the person running their game this time of year - but what do you get for the person who already has all the books and dice they need? We've put together a few ideas to help pick out the perfect gift for that special someone who creates worlds for you to play in!
You’ve picked up some stories of heroic deeds, you’ve even performed a few yourself. But now you face the greatest challenge for an aspiring hero - boasting about it in the most famous adventurer haunt of medieval times: The Hero’s Return Inn. In Braggart you have a choice each round to either play cards and make up a story, or to go to the bar. Stories are by turns hilarious or awe-inspiring and other players can accept them or play a Liar card, downgrading the boast into something much less impressive.
In the Gloom card game, you assume control of the fate of an eccentric family of misfits and misanthropes. The goal of the game is sad, but simple: you want your characters to suffer the greatest tragedies possible before passing on to the well-deserved respite of death. You'll play horrible mishaps like Pursued by Poodles or Mocked by Midgets on your own characters to lower their Self-Worth scores, while trying to cheer your opponents' characters with marriages and other happy occasions that pile on positive points. The player with the most miserable family wins.
DIE is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of forty-something adults have to deal with the returning, unearthly horror they only just survived as teenage role-players. None of them have talked about what happened in the two years they were missing, disappeared into the very world they were playing in, and only now must they face it again - when a bloody d20 from that fateful game reappears.
The writer describes it as "Goth Jumanji", but that's only the tip of this critically acclaimed obsidian iceberg.
