Thanks to GenCon, the answer to the question “Most Recent RPG Bought?” is a two-way tie between the Marvel Multiverse RPG (which I played at the con as well) and the Captain’s Log Solo RPG for Star Trek Adventures.
The Marvel Multiverse RPG captures the feel of superhero play very, very well … and does so without bogging down play with lots of math or table look-ups. And it’s Marvel. And I’m a Marvel fanboy. And it’s got an X-Men sourcebook coming out. And … how could I not buy it?
The Captain’s Log Solo RPG appealed to me for three reasons:
- I love Star Trek, and the latest Strange New Worlds season makes me want to play the game.
- The Star Trek Adventures RPG has been sitting on my game shelf, unplayed, since the start of the pandemic.
- I enjoy solo games, and this seems like a great fusion of the things I enjoy.
Now to actually play it…
- This post is part of the RPG a Day 2023 event. Catch up on Nuketown’s posts via the project page and learn more about the event at its community page on Facebook.
