A Visit to San Sibilia – Actual Play & Review

I Was Excited But…

Before I start, this is a sponsored post. The creator of the game, Peter Eijk contacted me asking if I would be interested in covering the game and after taking a quick look I enthusiastically said, “Yes!” as I tend to enjoy this kind of game. I don’t let the fact the game was given to me for this review get in the way of actual critique, but be sure to keep it in mind regardless.

What immediately stood out to me with A Visit to San Sibilia, henceforth just referred to as San Sibilia, was its artistic style. The game truly looks great, and since Peter’s goal is to get funding for a physical copy, at the very least I can confidently say this will look absolutely stunning on any gaming shelf or otherwise. Though the game is only a mere 14 pages, each of the pages that include art (most of them), do a great job of invoking a sense of the setting. So let’s take a journey together as we visit San Sibilia! Continue reading “A Visit to San Sibilia – Actual Play & Review”

Tempting Fate – My Latest Role-Playing Game That You Can Play FREE Right Now!

How’s Everybody Doing?

I hope you are all doing well in spite of everything that’s been going on lately. This is just a quick article letting you know I created another tabletop role-playing game. You can download Tempting Fate and play, absolutely free, right now! This was created in under 24 hours under the social distancing period as a way to stay active, but also to have something fun to do with friends and family (and of course, to share with all of you stuck at home).

This is my second-ever full game release following my previous title Into the Woods.., which has been highly rated and enjoyed by several hundreds of people now (thank you so much for that). With that, let’s dive right into what this game’s about!

Overview

Whether a group of teenagers trying to escape a crazed killer, a gang of bank robbers trying to score big, or some kids trying to cheat a math test, all of them are tempting fate.

-The Game’s Page

Tempting Fate is a rules-lite tabletop role-playing game that can be enjoyed by
1-4 players and 1 narrator. The game may be enjoyed without a narrator or even solo should that be desired as well. While Tempting Fate is best suited for horror narratives, it supports any story that has high stakes where the players face major consequences if anything goes wrong (expulsion, arrest, insanity, or even death).

What’s in the Box?

Included is a short 17 page rulebook which houses the rules and 9 playbooks for players. There are no scenarios or settings included in this rulebook, but some ideas are offered to get you started. The rules are simple and easy to understand, fitting on about 7 pages.  The rest of the document being devoted to the playbooks which act as rules references and character sheets for the players.

What You’ll Need

In order to play Tempting Fate you will need a standard deck of 52 playing cards with both jokers, some tokens (several six-sided dice will work just as well), and this rulebook. Of course, you may want to invite a friend or two to play with you as well 😉
