100 RPGs to Celebrate the 100th Post

So, this is my 100th post and I have pondered long and hard as to what to talk about. To me the 100th post is a monumental goal I honestly didn’t think I would reach, let alone before the end of the first year. Needless to say I want the content of the post to be something of substance and on a topic that people might like to read about. I have canvased some of my gaming friends on the various social media sites I haunt and they have thrown a variety of topics at me. Some of the topics were great and others, like my wife’s, did not cut the mustard at being worthy of the 100th post. So, I have decide to list the 100 RPGs and in some cases a module or two I would love to try some day.  This seems worthy of being the hundredth post.

Every game on this list is a game that either I own or something that has intrigued me for one reason or another. Some are old games, some are new, some are mainstream and some are indie games. If you want to help me reduce this list by running one of these games for me I would be honored to sit at your virtual or maybe even physical table. Since I own a good many of the games listed below, I will hopefully be gearing up to run my fair share of them in the new year for all that want to play.

There’s 99 games listed above. I am leaving the 100 spot vacant. Why? Because I want you to recommend me your favorite game that is not on the list above! If you recommend your favorite game, be prepared for me to ask your to run it for me!

    I’ll add Owl Hoot Trail to the mix. It’s a Western/Steam Punk game. I haven’t played it yet, but I own the book/PDF. It looks great.

    Check it out: http://pelgranepress.com/site/?tag=owl-hoot-trail

    Thank you for the recommendation! I’ll have to do some research on this. While I am normally good with steampunk, Westerns have not really caught my eye. That being said, I am not opposed to trying it; I think it’s a genre that I should give its fair due. Would you be interested in running this game online through G+ Hangouts woth or without Roll20?

  3. Hey Modoc, as much as I want to list TSR’s Marvel Superheroes (lovingly known as Marvel FASERIP), I’m not sure how you set for Supers RPGs. SO, let me recommend another long forgotten TSR game: Gangbusters.

    ANd if you ask me to run it I will – it’d be the first time for both of us. 😀

      GM Glen,

      I am not a huge fan of supers, but I did grow up playing Marvel Superheroes from time to time. Now Gangbusters sounds like a great idea!

      So, if I ask you’ll run Gangbusters? Consider yourself asked.

      Are you on G+? I have set put a community for the Boxcar Nation. It would be a good place to chat about Gangbusters or any other game. Here’s the link incase you need it. http://tinyurl.com/boxcarnation


      1. I am on G+ and joined your group.

        Okay, asked. 😀 Gangbusters is one of those games (one of many) that in the day I could not get my group to play. They were too entrenched in what they had been playing for years (Champions and WFRP). We would OCCASIONALLY play a new game (I seem to remember trying out GURPS when it first came out) but only if our main GM wanted to run it (I guess I could have run GB for them but at the time I wasn’t too confident in my referreeing abilities). We also dumped Marvel when it came out due to us playing Champions every week most of the players felt we didn’t need another supers system (a lot of the players already had at least 2-3 Marvel writeups for Champions).
