My Current Gaming

16 May 2021

What am I currently running and/or playing as of May 2021? Like everyone else, my gaming has shifted entirely online over the last year. For a time, I was averaging playing in or running five sessions every two weeks. I’ve pared back on that a bit recently. But I thought I’d talk a little about the games I’m involved with at the moment and what I’m feeling about each of them.

The last few years have seen a resurgence of the “kids in small towns encounter weird stuff” subgenre. A lot of this revival is driven by nostalgia for the 1980s, as with television series like Stranger Things and games like Kids on Bikes and Tales from the Loop. In many ways, this type of story is perfect for a pared-down rules system like GURPS Lite.

As I write this, Gen Con 2019 is 11 days away. Normally, I’d be getting excited about the show right about now. And I am, but this year feels different in a few ways, leading to a certain ambivalence as I look forward to my trip to Indianapolis.
