WELCOME TO RPGGEEK MADNESS!!

RPGGeek Madness 2019 is here! Every Spring, we pit the top core rules, settings, modules, splatbooks, and RPG boxed sets against each other in a single elimination tournament to determine which is the best. Here is how it will work:

1 I create a list of the best RPG Items that get in as automatic entries
2 You nominate additional RPG Items and everyone votes on those
3 I take the winners and seed the tournament
4 You vote each round in pairs of match ups for the best game
5 I set up the next round with the winners and we repeat
6 One item gets crowned as the winner of RPGGeek Madness!

This tournament is supposed to be fun. Comments and friendly trash talking is highly encouraged.

Let's get started with your nominations!

Here are the winners!
S1: Tomb of Horrors
AMBER Diceless Role-Playing
The Star Wars Roleplaying Game (Second Edition)
DCC #067: Sailors on the Starless Sea
Tales from the Loop
B2: The Keep on the Borderlands
Marvel Heroic Roleplaying: Basic Game
Aaron Allston's Strike Force
Lady Blackbird

Next Round:
RPGGeek Madness Tournament 2019 - Round One!

2 You nominate additional games and everyone votes on those.

This is where we are now! All you need to do is add any RPG Item that:

A did not receive an automatic entry above
b you think is great

Everybody should thumb the entries they like the most. The top nine entries with the most number of thumbs will get into the tournament. I will break all ties.

Comments and friendly trash talk are highly encouraged.

Nominations close Monday 11 March, with all votes tabulated after Friday 15 March!

I'll get started with a few entries. Thumb this if you think Amber should be in the tournament! Or thumb this if you don't think it should be in the tournament, so you can have the joy of voting against it!

I had this and gave it away in a chain of generosity. Nominating it for this tournament might be the closest I get to ever playing it again.

This game tells the best Comic Book / Super Hero stories. And with Captain Marvel coming out this weekend, maybe it will get some more thumbs.

I've never played it, but if we are adding kobolds, the goblins should get some face time too.

I've somehow managed to survive this in a PBF game for almost a year and a half, and figured if I made some sacrifices to it that my character might keep going.

An under-appreciated book that came out last year. So much great stuff inside it.

My last one. With so many kids on bikes 80s RPGs that have come out in the last year, this is still my favorite. (Although ironically Kids on Bikes is a close second.)

My favorite comment?

"You know how some mythic, hard-to-find roleplaying products only manage to disappoint when you finally grab a copy ?

Well, this isn't one of those. This one lives up to the hype as one of the best roleplaying supplement of all times. Go ahead and use the advice in any superhero themed campaign."


I'm not the one who wrote that, but I will say it's true.

My nominee for setting. Works just as well set in 2018 (in which I am playing) as it did in 2015 (in which I ran it).

A great premise for a setting. Unlimited potential. I'm surprised this didn't get more love. I also love Numenera, which uses the same system, but The Strange is just so wacky that I guess it scares people off.

Don't be scared, be Strange!

Spycraft 2.0 is my favorite RPG. The game plays very cinematically, and flows incredibly well. I love how it's incredibly easy to understand the basics of the system, since the underlying engine is D20, but then there are so many tweaks and nuances that add so much to the theme.
