During the month of August, I am participating in #RPGaDay, an opportunity to talk daily about different topics related to games and gaming, organized by Dave Chapman, designer of Doctor Who: Adventures In Time and Space. I’ve been out of gaming for a while, so this is gonna be an interesting exercise.
Day 3: Favorite New Game of the Last 12 Months
This one is easy to answer: Primetime Adventures 3rd edition! I missed the Kickstarter for this new version of the game when Matt Wilson ran it (see yesterday’s post for why I stopped doing Kickstarters) so I had to wait for the commercial release of the game to get it. That moment finally came a couple of months ago! I was so excited when I finally say Matt announce that I could order the game. And now I have it.
I love PTA. That love goes back to an amazing game of Primetime Adventures Star Wars a few Gen Cons ago, and has only grown ever since. In many ways, PTA is the only RPG I need from now on; it hits all my drama and gamey needs with ease and elegance. I gave my copy of 2nd edition to a friend about 5 years ago so him and his group could play, so I’m ecstatic to have it in my hands once more.
