Game Inspiring

It takes time to play a good analogue game how days where it takes two people. But I agree with the author that it is well worth the time. It allows you to be more creative in developing your adventure then today's narrow computer game stories. I download the Dark Occult game and plan to see if I can encourage other people to disconnect for a while and have some fun. Enjoyed the podcast and looking forward to the next show.

Re: Game Inspiring

There's something comforting and sublimely satisfying about sitting down with a good game, a good cup of coffee, and wading through all the different rules and exceptions to rules. It must be similar to the thrill that a lawyer gets when going to a legal library. Or, less repulsively, when a programmer reviews an API.
