Video is over 2 hours long and goes over 1970s history of D&D and other tabletop RPGs inspired by D&D during this time.

Here's the description:

Just one year after the publication of Dungeons & Dragons, four other games debuted and helped define the new genre that would come to be called "Role-Playing Games." Learn about Boot Hill, Tunnels & Trolls, En Garde!, and Empire of the Petal Throne in this video: who created them and why, the game mechanics they used, and their legacy in shaping the future of roleplaying games for decades into the future.


Enjoy, y'all.

Listen to it while you're doing other things, ig

I highly recommend subscribing to this channel, even if you're not going to watch or listen to the video, as he does other more shorter videos, and it's always nice listening to the history of D&D and tabletop RPG games from someone that worked on them during his prime.

Welp, again, enjoy.

George Lucas be like:

"And they fight."

Some of the comments be like "We have Hades at home" but honestly most of them seem Sinophobic.

Like, China isn't the only one making rogue-likes by the thousand or whatever they call them; America does that well enough.

Thoughts on this?

Video is 13 minutes long.

It seems that there is a lot of government bloat (I know, I know) but it also meshes with non-profits and other businesses involved, which culminates in the state (in the truly Marxian sense of the word) having a lot of bureaucracy to it ("you stay in your role and I stay in mine").

Damn.

10,000 puzzles and counting?

And I love puzzle games, but this seems excessive (but also tempting).

Original thread.

Title kinda says all.

I'll have my own reply later.

Special weekly question:

What are you most anticipating for 2024 in terms of games?

I prefer something big, though not too big.
