Hello!

The Solo RPGs On Your Table geeklists are really a great resource for solitaire RPG gamers. However, they are also a bane for our purses as they point out all those new games we could purchase. And regularly, we cave in.

This is a list to commemorate those moments where we were bewitched but also to get a feeling for the power of those geeklists.

So, feel free to list the items you bought because of the geeklists, maybe commenting on the item or the circumstances of the purchase or whatever comes to mind.

Yours,

SBGrad

PS Kudos and thanks to Deathworks, who I shamelssly copied in making this list.

Not bought, but acquired through the RPGGeek Chain of Generosity - I only noticed it there because so many people have played it!

Picked up the PDFs of this, all of the generic, Sci-Fi, Horror and Demon Hunter versions. They are on sale at drivethrurpg.com until March 13. Spent most of the afternoon printing, cutting and sleeving them. Can't wait to put them to use.

They are multi-use cards for GM replacement. Each card has a ton of stuff on it:

- Yes/Yes!/No/No! answers for bad/even/good odds
- difficulty rating from 1-10, bell-curved at 6
- 3 descriptors per card
- 4 of 10 icons per card (crown/sword/heart etc.)
- 1 of 4 elements
- 1 of 16 runes
- a sight, sound, touch and smell
- an object/group of objects
- a catalyst for adventure
- a location
- a vice and a virtue
- 3 names
- a results for d4/d6/d8/d10/d12/d20/d100 rolls
- a directional arrow for scatter

I'm taking the plunge this weekend with this title. The entire Kabuki catelouge is on sale this week @ $3 each.

Seems like a safe bet.

Just in the last few days I started delving into gamebooks.
I'm playing solitaire a lot this year (though I have for decades, on and off), and I am now in the mood for gamebooks. To take with me on my summer vacation when the ladies are off shopping and I'm in a café sipping coffee.

So this one should arrive today, and next week (hopefully)

SROYT has opened up a whole new world of rpg gaming to me! I stalled on buying board games to fill-in spaces in my rpg library.

I picked up and intriguing looking, mostly plain, brown box from my local game shop and opened it to find this:

early-ish video of playing solo from the original Fantasy Trip. After rewatching the video I decided The Fantasy Trip was something that I couldn't resist. So the gargantuan Legacy Edition is on its way to me now!
