RPGaDay 2017 – Day 6

06/08/2017

You can game every day for a week. Describe what you’d do!

Short Answer: Play something different each day.

More Answer: Some say variety is the spice of life. While this isn’t always true, this is one situation where it would certainly be a bonus. I’m sure there are people who would happily play the same roleplaying game every day for a week. There are certainly some games where that would work.

Personally, I think it would be more interesting to play a different one shot adventure each day. It would be a single group of players and we’d take turns being the GM. This would allow us to try a variety of games, with each GM picking a game that suits their GMing style.

I think this approach would be more interesting from a roleplaying perspective. It would make the players test their acting skills, unless they got (un)lucky and ended up with similar characters. This should also prevent any one game from becoming boring and give all involved a variety of experiences.

This could further be enhanced by everyone starting the day watching a movie or TV show that relates to that day’s game. This might help people get into the right frame of mind for the gaming session, while allowing us to move past any lingering influences from the previous day’s gaming.
