Favourite New Game of the last 12 months
This is a tough one, given that I like to stick to games I’ve actually played. Lots of cool games have come out and now sit, unread, on my shelf, but I’ve been seriously short of free time this past year to play much of anything.
I’ll go with D&D 5e. I found the PHB a really enjoyable read, I had fun rolling up my character, and the one session my Sunday group has managed to play was a total blast. The game flowed really well in play, which made me not only want to play more but also to run the game, and I haven’t had any interest in running D&D in probably five years.
If we’re talking unplayed games, HeroQuest in Glorantha was both welcome and a long time coming.
