This contest is interesting. Your short story must involve a machine that tells you how you are going to die… I’ve never done it since it’s a little out of my wheelhouse, but I intend to give it a try sometime.
What?: FATE Who?: BarnDog
Why?: Our monthly campaign 20+ roll: Our characters said, “screw it” to our native valley home and took off on our own. I am guessing my notes on such events will become a little more detailed in future postings.
What?: Death Machine Who?: BarnDog Why?: Because the oldest daughter requested it. 20+ roll: I love the imagination that goes into creatively killing someone.
What?: Damage Report Who?: Monday Group Why?: Hadn’t had a chance to play it yet 20+ roll: It took THREE attempts to pass “The Problem with Puffballs” campaign. It was fun though, even when we suffocated.
What?: Mai -Star Who?: Monday group + oldest daughter Why?:Try it out 20+ roll: I like the mechanic of the game. Your girl has a trait you can use to your advantage. From there, you can advertise on one row or serve clients on another (and get points). It was a rather interesting game.
What was played: World of Darkness
Who Played it?: Rays
Why?: It’s our thing.
+1 to rolls: In this episode:
Also, each two successes Aggy (my nun character) rolled, I earned a sheet from the books I was researching.
What was played:King of Tokyo
Who played it: Rays
Why: It seemed to fit the theme of blowing stuff up for the holiday.
+1 rolls: Apparently, we hadn’t played this game with the Rays in a long time. They caught on to the new rule set (of the expansion) very quickly.
What was played: Hanabi Who Played it?: Rays Why?: A fireworks card game must be played on the 4th of July +1 to rolls: We tend to cheat with our tone of voice when we give clues as to what cards people have.
What was played: Food Fight Who Played it?: Rays Why?: War with food: also a good 4th of July tie in. +1 to rolls: I fought the dog and I won. We hadn’t played this game in a very. long. time. it was nice to pull it out. Also, I had never been a fan of the drafting part of this game up to this point, but now I think I like it (I hope my husband isn’t reading this).
