I was inspired by this Geeklist: 2014 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each.

INTRO

So RPGs are just simply a different animal than board games. Fewer people play them and it's more difficult to get a group together. Plus, finding a 3-4 hour block to play a game is difficult, not to mention the significant time investment to learn rules. The 10x10 wouldn't work for RPGs, because I think most people are lucky to get 100 plays total in a given year.

So, what is a challenge for RPG players? Playing a couple games many times is trivial for any RPG player who plays in a campaign or two. But, many RPG players often play one or two games and are satisfied with that. Yes, there are players who flit from game to game, but I think they might be an exception.

So here's the challenge. In 2014, play five RPGs you've never played before each at least once.

GUIDELINES

1) You can join this GeekList any time, but plays only count after you say you are participating in the challenge. If you join in mid-January and want to count a game from a week before, that's no big deal. But I want to avoid the situation of someone joining the list much later in the year and backlogging all their plays since January.

2) A "play" is defined as either playing or GMing or participating in a GMless (or GMfull) game.

3) VoIP games count.

4) PBF games count as long as the game starts AFTER you post on the GeekList. The game must actually get off the ground for it to count (i.e. Not dying after a month.) I will trust your judgment on this one. It does not necessarily have to "complete" in 2014, though.

5) Playtests count.

For other corner cases, use your best judgment. If something is coming up a lot, let me know and I can make a clarification.

PRIZES

What? Prizes? Shouldn't playing all these great new games be prize enough? But prizes are also fun!

1) Anyone who completes the challenge will divide the pot evenly. I will throw in 100 Geekgold and anything tipped to this GeekList will also be part of the pot.

2) BONUS: 50 Geekgold to the person who plays the MOST games that are new to them. If more than one person ties, they split this pot.

I will be participating but am ineligible for all prizes.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

Add an item to this list to indicate your intent to participate.

Whenever you play a new game, edit the item and give the name of the game, the date (or dates for a PBF) you played. If you want to talk a little bit about the circumstances and what you thought, great! But it's not necessary.

You DO NOT have you say which five games you intend to play ahead of time. But if you want to indicate a couple games you're hoping to get in, great!

The legitimacy of PbF games 1 and 2 is questionable at best, so I have elected not to count them. For reasons.

A big, big thanks to everyone who has agreed to play new games with me. People keep asking me where I've found so many games, so I made a list! Anyone interested in any of the online groups or conventions can find my handy little list here. All of these are open and welcome new players and members:
Maidens of Mayhem: A community for men and women who support female and female-identifying players and gamemasters. Games played intermittently.
Indie+ Games At The Bar: A community showcasing indie games once per month. There are always two sessions of Games At The Bar.
Contessa: An online convention for everyone by women. Convention held annually.
Let Us Game (LUG) Con: An online convention for people who love games! Held quarterly.

I'm definitely up for this challenge. There's so much I want to play, and it's looking more and more like VOIP gaming will be it for me for the next couple of years, so now's my chance.

I want to play:

Anything with supers. Literally anything.
Anything involving vikings.

Specifically, I'd like to play:

13th Age
D&D Next
Blood, Sweat, and Steel (a Fudge game still in playtesting)
Interface Zero 2.0
Mecha (with or without Combiners and Mercenaries rules)
Part-Time Gods
Part-Time Gods
Part-Time Gods (yeah, I really want to play this)
Wu Xing: the Ninja Crusade
Camp Myth; the RPG
HelperMonkey.com (Willing to GM)
Tears of a Machine

It looks like my tastes are a little different than everyone else's, except for maybe 13th Age and D&D Next. Hopefully that doesn't mean I'm SOL.

By the way, I'd be willing to GM the following games in exchange for any of the above:

Pathfinder (though I suspect this isn't new to most people)
Savage Worlds (Deluxe core, Hellfrost, or Day After Ragnarok)
Psi-punk
Monster Kart Mayhem (though it's technically GMless)
Colors of Grey
Killshot

O what the hell I'm in on this one as well. HEX is high on the calender to get played though.

1. Bacchanal, we are past setup and everyone is taking their first scene.

2. Kagematsu, a voip game run by Jules.

3. Cosmic Patrol, a voip game started up by the BigE. Wanted to play this ever since I got the free rpg day quick start rules.

4. Lady Blackbird, a voip game ran by Bifford.

5. The One Ring, a voip game I looked forward to, ran by Kai

Challenge Completed!

And got a couple of extra's already:

6. Mutant: År Noll, I'm playing this in a PBF game with Karl as GM.

7. Project Ninja Panda Taco, as a part of 2014 PBF initiative I jumped into this game with Kwakkie as GM.

8. Fear Itself, Kwakkie came over to run this at my place with my regular group. Second session planned in april.

9. Monster of the Week, totally to my suprise I got into a game by Voip. Had fun, did not plan to get this one on my list.

10. Hollow Earth Expedition, not sure if this counts a new game but I do count it as one. I only played HEX one time through a play by forum but it never really got of the ground. There was quit a bit of interest on the april geekmeet so I prepared something. It actually turned out that Peter ran a table as well. But I also played it the day before with my regular group to try it out.

11. Monsterhearts, yet another game with apocalypse engine I wasn't expecting to be on my list. But played this during the geekmeet and it was great fun.

12. Midsummer Wood, and another game on VOIP. Little game by D. Vincent Baker. We had fun but the rules need to be adjusted or made clearer at least. We had a bit of a hard time getting through it but had fun, which is the most important part.

13. Murderous Ghosts, what do I have games by D. Vincent Baker. On holiday it seemed a perfect time to try out this game. Played it with my wife. Took on the role of MC myself. Liked it!

14. Durance, after playing Fiasco I wanted to try out other games from this designer and this one was on the list. So Andrea launched a VOIP game. Stuck in a penal colony with a anarchist on the one hand and a guard on the other. Well the thing went up in flames in the end. Not quit sure about this game though.

15. Asterix Adventure Games. Thanks to Bifford I learned about this game but it was a solo adventure. But thanks to Stelio Bifford found a way to transform it into a multiplayer in which I take on the role of Dogmatix. Which is a fun and not very hard to play part. PBF

16. Maid: The Role-Playing Game, I'm not an anime fan, not at all. I don't actually know a thing about it but since it was meant to be funny and over the top I decided to join. It's fun! Maid!

17. Dark Heresy (2nd Edition), I have played Dark Heresy before but never played the second edition that came out. Luckily Karl is running us a fun PBF so I can try it out.

18. Dinky Dungeons, Played a game with Dave as gamemaster, woohoo, plus it was a game new to me. We played during Virtuacon '14 and we actually all survived!

19. The Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen was the other new to me game during Virtuacon '14. It was ran by Andrea and it was superfun! Love this game, got to get a copy for myself.

20. Night's Black Agents, I was part of a adventure playtest so can't really tell anything else.

21. Trail of Cthulhu, I do have a copy lying around for quit a long time but never played it. It now hit the virtual table by me joining a PBF game by Karl.

I'm in, but I am not sure how many I will actually get to play.

Fate Core System: Just picked this up and I would really like to try it out. My wife likes the sound of the mechanics as well.

Fiasco: Bought this last year, seems like it would be fun to play for a lighter game.

Lords of Gossamer & Shadow: Just started a PBF of this today. I've never played Amber, so I am eager to see what it is like.

I picked up several OSR games in the recent Lulu sale (OSRIC, Labyrinth Lord, and Swords & Wizardry). I'd like to try any of those out.

At a local gameday or convention, I'd like to try out: GURPS (4th Edition) or Dogs in the Vineyard.

I'm not sure at what point a Savage Worlds setting becomes its own game, but I picked up several things for Hellfrost and it is a fairly big modification to the base SW mechanics with several new subsystems.

My first addition will be sort of added retroactively, but it was only yesterday so that should be okay according to the rules.

I've also decided to actually log all my rpg sessions so I will just link to the gamelogs so there's some additional information as well.


So this was supposed to have been done by march already but the Numenera game by Alex was bumped up to May due to scheduling issues. But thanks to the Belgian RPGG Meet I finally made it!

What a great challenge and I glady accept with hope for abundant PbF or VOIP experiences! I am focusing my list on systems and families because I have yet to experience a module/game/session in these to know what adventure I would find challenging.

UPDATE: I appeared to have set myself up for failure by pre-selecting my Five RPGs instead of doing as others have done in this geeklist... trying five as they come available to venture into something different. So I have revised this list to post the RPG systems that I have NEVER played before EVER in 2014 so far. My original post is in the COMMENTS section and I am hoping to gain the last few NEVER played before systems in this coming month.

(1) Labyrinth Lord (MAR-NOV 2014 PbF) B11 Kings Festival
+ I never knew about Labyrinth Lord system until this 2014 Newbie PbF offering. It was a nice walk through an OGL of the D&D Basic format of play. Our party rampaged through the dungeon and took on any creature or being that got in our way. A few special items were obtained that kept a few of us from outright death at the end engagement. This system was very easy to pick up and the rules explanation was simplified so that immediate play could occur without GM interpretation of rules for the players.

(2) Tunnels & Trolls Rulebook (5th Edition) (JUN-AUG 2014 PbF) Trollstone Caverns
+ My first ever ramble with Tunnels and Trolls - loved it! The system was very easy to grasp though it took some time to get the hang of saving rolls versus the old ADD1E attribute percentile rolls. This adventure was absolute fun in how the quirks of the characters were able to translate smoothly to how they took actions. Our party took pity on a special goblin, Dan-Rarr, and then proceeded to ramble around in the caverns barely keeping our mages from falling on their faces... regularly, after spellcasting. This session ended and we continue onto a new Dysfunctional Delvers for Dan-rarrrr - IC Thread with big snakes to kick it off. Oh joy!

(3) 13th Age (JUL-SEP 2014 PbF) Make Your Own Luck
+ Tried 13th Age and found it... difficult. The adventure was a simple layout of keeping a city safe and finding the one sacred thing before the bad guys. What was difficult for me was figuring out how to use the Backgrounds and Icons where they would provide that extra modifier in actions. The story had a lot of gaps in it that the players did not grasp the flow of movement and activities as well as we hoped. Debating if I would try 13th Age again.

(4) QADD: Quick And Dirty Dungeons (3-18 JUL 2014 PbP) The Tower in the Marsh
+ This was a micro solo adventure that I wanted to try to see if solo modules would be my thing. I found the ease format in this micro adventure fun in getting feel for 'flipping the pages' of a solo adventure. QADD used a unique Battle Score method for combat that to me appeared very similar to Fighting Fantasy but added a few variants of DEFTNESS and SPEED. I will definitely play other adventures with this compact and simplified system.

(5) Shadowrun (5th Edition) (JUL-ongoing 2014 PbF) Splintered State
+

Disclaimer: I have not played any RPGs until recently (it is always good to marry a GM/DM) and I am still digesting many core rule books and manuals to get up to speed for different RPG families and series. I had played Advanced Dungeons and Dragons back in my younger days and with so many eye opening new RPG formats - I would love to experience other worlds, game structures and meet new players for future PbF and VOIP sessions. I have my eye on the 2014 RPG Geek Newbie Play-by-Forum Sign-up and will definitely be pouncing on it come March 2nd.

Woohoo! Love this idea!

Update: AAAAAAAAAAAAND that's five! Here's to many more!

1) ViewScream (1st Ed.) (2/16/14): ViewScream - The Culler out of Space - VoIP 16th of February 2014
2) Double Cross Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook (???): Hopefully playing this soon! I've got a character written, and the GM is writing up the episode.
3) Smallville (???): Running this for the 2014 PbF Initiative!
4) Dogs in the Vineyard (???): Really eager to actually see this in play at the table! I love what I've seen of the system in action.
5) Monster of the Week (3/20/2014): Running this in August for a local convention, but I want to run or play it before then. UPDATE: Ran it near the end of March for a group, it was loads of fun!
6) Lady Blackbird (3/15/14): The Castle Blackbird hack, technically, as a surly Victorian Nord who got into biiiiiiiig trouble.
7) Mutants & Masterminds Second Edition (6/11/14): That was a surprise! But it's rather fun to play! Powers plus a more streamlined combat system work out well. I'm playing Parallel Man, who swaps between Alternate Universe versions of himself!
8) The Fifth World (6/14/14): The new currently-in-beta from Jason Godesky that I played at Games on Demand in Origins! Really interesting system about weaving together the mythology of a new world, and using animism as an explanation of the core mechanic was brilliant! Also, I turned into an evil shadow murderer in the depths of a mine. Oops.
9) Swords Without Master (7/28/14): Absolutely AWESOME game that I tried for the first time. Will try to play again as much as I can. Absolutely nails the fiction/color/tone aspect of fantasy, and as a writer, I really appreciate that. I played Grost Im'Grupp, survivor of the desolation of Lennay, Kingdom of the Crags, who journeyed with rogues who were all compelled to return to Lennay to complete a great ritual. There was much sorrow, but the Jovial won out, and we left Lennay behind us, with gleams in our eyes.
10) Dread (8/23/14): Surprise! I didn't expect to play this one when I went to the convention this past weekend. Really fun, even if I died early. I wound up falling into the canyon river and getting my head impaled on a rock. I was a nice catalyst for the impending doom of the group. Fortunately for them, they all escaped.
11) Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space (10/11/14): Sweet! Thanks to VirtuaCon, I had a great game of this, as the Second Doctor alongside my first, third, and fourth regenerations. We had a blast, and zipped out of there in the knick of time.

I only just found this list and thought I'd go ahead and join even if it's a bit late. I feel sort of like I'm cheating since I'm a RPG newbie so just about every system I play will be new to me .

Played/playing so far:

Monster of the Week PbF Newbie Initiative game. This doesn't really count for the grand total since it started just a bit before I joined this list but I'm adding it for myself since it is a new system for me.

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game (1st Edition) My other PbF Newbie Initiative game. Same conditions apply as the MotW game but it is another one I've never played.

Project Ninja Panda Taco on 1st of May. Good fun, session report here.

Mouse Guard on the 6th of May. Squeezed in a really quick game at special request. Didn't go as well as I would have liked but good enough for a first pass. Will try and get a session report up when I have more time.

Pendragon PbF started on 24th of April (ongoing here)

Homebrew RPG PbF started on 15th of May (ongoing here)

Operation Britain as a multiplayer PbF started on 7th of June (ongoing here)

Unpublished Prototype Playtest PbF of Karl Larsson's game Scavengers started on 11th of August (ongoing here)

Hope to play:

Engine Heart, I don't know why but this game really intrigues me and I'm actually considering having a go at GMing it. Maybe as a PbF game, I'm not sure.

Legend, The PDF was too cheap to pass up but now that I've read the rules I'd like to try it out.

Fate Core System, Heard so much about this and I'm keen to find out what all the buzz is about.

Fate of the Norns, The rules sound interesting, the setting is awesome, and the rulebook is really pretty. Now if only I could convince people to play it.

God bless,
Kezle

I noticed this list earlier and totally forgot about it until Jonna started talking about it. So I'll be joining now and being late is better than never, right . I'll start counting new games from here as was requested and should get the first new game today in form of 13th Age.

Played games:

1. 13th Age - Played 11.04.2014

- GM:ed the game and run through the scenario in the book plus some extra. I really like the more streamlined system in fighting and character creation (though the fights can still last a while).

2. Tales from the Floating Vagabond - Played 18.04.2014

I played a Rhinosaurus bouncer who was good at breaking things (though he didn't get to do much of that). I liked some bits of the system (the difficulty scaling is swell) and the equipment and skills were silly which suited the game but it just didn't get me excited about the game.

3. MegaTraveller - Played 09.05.2014

We had made the characters earlier and mine was a pirate lieutenant who was quite good with swords, melee, guns and piloting. The system worked quite well but I didn't like the randomess of the character creation. The system lends itself quite well to different kind of scenarios and we'll probably play this again sometime.

4. Über RPG: Steampunk - Played 23.05.2014

This one had a huge character creation for the first time players. I liked it in sense that you really can build up your character to do what you want but on the fist time there's just so much choices that it takes a lot of time. Otherwise the system worked quite well and the resolution with the dice was alright (if you like throwing a lot of d6 it's a game for you). You can also bend the system to do different kind of scenarios which is a good thing. My character this time was an entertainer and explorer who liked attention and adventuring a bit too much.

5. Psi*Run (Revised) - Played 20.06.2014

I had heard about this before from Jonna and she had liked it a lot so I was interested about trying it. This play was also the first time GM:ing for Jonna so it was nice to see her try that role for the first time. For once the character creation is very quick and it should take only a few minutes after which you can dive into the game. I liked the system and style a lot and it can create lots of different approaches to the story. One downside was that at least on the first play the dice mechanic to handle the powers and situations kinda stalled the game. This aspect would probably get a lot faster on the second time and it wouldn't then distrupt the flow of the game as much.

6. Battlestar Galactica Role Playing Game - Played 01.08.2014

We made characters for this and then played a short one shot game. Quite standard character creation with a bonus with the negative and positive assets (my character was lazy and greedy but also a mechanical genius). The system works alright in combat and the characters will be quite specialised in the start. If you're fan of the series you will probably like this a lot more because there's the characters from the series and all the equipment and ships are from it.

7. Antlers - Played 08.08.2014

Quick character creation with a nice mix of special powers. This works really well as a humorous one shot as we played it or then you could play it with kids and tone it down a bit and have fun with your special flying deer who fight against the aliens.

8. Ikuisuuden laakso / Valley of Eternity - Played 08.08.2014

I liked the character creation with the different kind of penguin species and lot's of different powers. Even though there was quite a few things to choose from it was still quite quick to make the penguins. The system is quite simple and it works well for this. This could be played as a more humorous game with children who could have fun as playing penguins or as a more gritty game where you have a hard time surviving in very hard environment with lots of hazards.

I came across this list in late March, which sadly was too late for most of the new games which I had started in 2014 (or so I thought) - if I had known about this in say, January, I could have completed this by March, and so I was discouraged.

But several people said I should still join the list, even though I felt the chances of me completing it were fairly impossible, given how long the games I play usually take. *hence the sad wizards* And am I ever glad I joined! Within a month and half of joining, I was able to succeed, bringing the grand total of new games I've played this year up to 13! And some of those games I love so much I'm going to have to run in the future!

So thanks for having this challenge. And thanks for all the people who convinced me it was worth joining (and that it could be done!)

*This game was started with the newbie player initiative in March. I had been lurking on the thread because it sounded interesting (and I was already in over the max number of games at the time...) A player recently dropped out, and I was able to step into his character's shoes, as it were, and will continue the game. As I've never played it before, and the game had been going strong, we'll see if this counts... and even if it doesn't, it looks like I have two more games lined up, so yay! I'll have five soon!

Other Games I Hope to Play this Year:

•) Lady Blackbird - I think I could manage this game, seeing how fast and easy it is to play.
•) The Space Around You - I would like to run this, to see how people like it, at some point this year.

See the list here for all the games I'd like to play at some point...
