Never mind what the cool kids are playing, what are we playing locally?
I’m in contact with 25 active RPG gamers, either first or second hand, of whom five regularly GM. There are another couple who have dropped out of the RPG scene for the moment and may or may not return.
Our local top five are:
|1||Shadowrun, 4th Edition||2||12|
|2||WFRP 3rd Edition||1||8|
|3||Savage Worlds||1 (me)||7|
|5||All Things Zombie||0||4|
So really, I shouldn’t grumble about the lack of gaming, because the facts are that I know a couple of dozen gamers and play something most weeks.
- The numbers add up to more than 25 as many of us play more than one thing.
- Player ages run from 17 to 56, and there’s a definite bias towards Shadowrun among the younger ones. The older ones each have their own favourite game.
- Of the 12 playing Shadowrun, 8 tried Savage Worlds first and couldn’t get their heads around it, but are happy playing the more complex game. All of them are under 20.
What are you playing, gentle readers? What are your “top fives”?
