RPGaDay 2015 – Day 27: Favourite idea for merging two games into one

27/08/2015

Short Answer: Using a card game to decide ‘combat’.

Long Answer: This question was a little tricky. I honestly can’t remember any good examples of merging games. Of course, it’s easy to combine two RPG settings that use the same rule system, but that seems a bit mainstream. Instead, I’d like to combine an RPG with a card game – Cards Against Humanity.

This wouldn’t work for all RPGs – Cards has the players going up against each other, not one player against a GM. Maybe a game that encourages conflict between the players. To be honest, I can’t think of anything that would closely fit this bill. Maybe an adult version of Toon.

It could also be used as a way of driving a game like Fiasco. Each time a player wants to change the story, the group plays through a round of Cards, with the winner’s card used to lead the new plot direction. Would it be silly? Yes. Could it be a quick path to madness? Of course. Would you enjoy yourselves? Absolutely.
