What is ’30 rails’?

Standard

Every little boy wants a train set. That is as much a fact as every little girl wanting a dolly and pram. By which I mean it is not a fact at all. Though lets pretend it is, they’re expensive, take up too much space and you end up having to go into one of those weird hobby stores for old men that don’t sell magic cards but just wooden gliders and build yourself motor boats not even big enough for the action man you invariable have sat at home. Well never fear for now there’s an alternative six pages long and free online, that’s …………………………………..

What is Hikikomori the solo RPG thing?

Standard

download

So far in solo RPGs we have delved into dungeons, travelled through time and battled through Normandy but now we come across perhaps the most deadly landscape of all, the human mind. This isn’t exaggeration either and I feel like I should say now that this game deals with depression, perversion, madness and suicide. Now it isn’t a heavy game in terms of rules and regulations and there is only as much depth to these fields as you yourself puts in but it’s there all the same. You won’t die from a dragons flame breath only to respawn at the start of a dungeon here. No you can find your character face down in a bath tub with no friends or family so if you feel this might be a problem then go back for another round of Dice of Arkham just not Way of the Warrior though, that wasn’t that good.

What is Dice of Arkham?

Standard

Okay, now that we’ve figured out how to roll dice and assign them let’s try taking that up the mountains of madness, in the shadow over Innsmouth and most importantly try to Re-animate my last post on solitaire, print and play titles. In this game you play an intrepid investigator racing around the globe to stop an evil cult from resurrecting one of the old gods, an ancient evil from before mankind walked upright, whose return would begin an age of chaos and madness.

What is Doctor who the solitaire story game?

Standard

Drwhogame

Doctor who strikes on Christmas day with either a plot heavy nerd-fest or a light fluffy silly piece that make you a bit embarrassed to have gathered the family around the box to watch in what should be a time of peace and entertainment. Now you can take yourself away with the half-finished bottle of sherry and a few mince pies, or perhaps a good cup of tea and a packet of jelly babies and have a go yourself, not just running the show but saving the universe itself. Will you be Tennant’s overly emotional Doctor or Capaldi’s gruff self-assured eyebrow wielding monster. Or maybe your time lord ,or dare I say lady, will be someone else entirely.

What is the Way of the Warrior (PnP)?

Standard

Print and play, solitare titles aim to give you a complete game in a few sheets of paper and allow you to get through it by yourself thus avoiding the difficulties of interacting with other people. Way of the Warrior as though trying to bridge the gap between the adolescent nerds playing Wizards and Warlocks and the grown up nerds playing B-17 sees you  lead a small party deep into enemy territory but this time via parachute drop and equipped with flame-throwers and non-brand name rifles. So how does it play? Is this the kind of game that would see you through three weeks of the cooler? Or would you rather try an assault the guns of Navarone by yourself?
