RPG-a-day 2017: Day 22


August means the #RPGaDay program is live. We are now in the fourth week of this month-long series filling my schedule. Sadly, the questions circle back on themselves a lot this year. The RPG-a-day project is hosted again at Brigade Con blog, where you can find the full list of questions.


I included a few more details in my launch post on Day 1




Day 22

Which RPGs are the easiest for you to run?


Familiarity with the rules is the primary factor in making a game easy to run. This answer would lead me to a familiar game. However, I am trying to find fresher answers for the last sequence of questions.


As it turns out, running Basic Dungeons & Dragons for the boys has been a breeze. This is harking back to my early years as a GM. I believe Basic was the first game I ran, and I spent many years running AD&D. Truthfully, I suspect a few aspects of the game are run loosely. Much of the game is broadly D&D, even if it may not be strictly according to the Basic rules I have. So, a combination of GM familiarity and improvising around the rules creates a very easy game to run.



Happy Gaming
