Posted By: scottdunphyToo bad you don't have the chance to run a game for him rather than give him one. I don't know how Story Games come across if the first exposure is reading one. My first experience was playing PTA and I think if I had read it I wouldn't have bought into it and would have convinced myself that it wasn't for me. But, of course, I can't know that for sure.And here's hansel's response:
Did anyone here start out reading a Story Game without playing first? What was that like?
Posted By: hanselI'd read numerous indie games before I ever played one. In fact, I'd read the D&D 3.5 core books mostly cover to cover before I ever got a chance to play (run) the game, which was my first time.So that's two rather different first experiences! I'm definitely interested in hearing more. Hence the new thread.
Dogs and BW were my first two to read, and even with such a short experience with trad games, I knew, heart beating and palms sweaty, thatthiswas what I wanted.
