You Can Game Every Day For A Week. Describe What You Would Do!
First off, I'd be remiss in pointing out that isn't actually a question. That's an imperative statement. Thankfully, it is imperative that I keep gaming.
This is such a wide open theoretical construct. Is this "I can game every day for a week, with people that I choose," or is it "I can game every day for a week, but random, cruel chance will deliver you players from the void at random intervals?" In the interest of me not being a pain or belaboring a point, I'm just going to assume generic people that will be available for the game systems I want to play.
Personally, when given time to plan, I love to have an organized theme. So I'd probably have a D&D Day, a Powered by the Apocalypse Day, A Games I've Never Gotten to the Table Day, A Star Wars RPG Day, A Marvel RPG Day, A DC RPG Day, and a Fate day. Probably.
I would narrow most of these days down to three segments of 4 hour games each or so, with smaller breaks between them. If I do a different game that fits the same theme, I'd probably change it up with the middle game as a palette cleanser.
- So, for D&D Day, I might play 5th edition morning and evening, and play DCC (I know, it deserves its own day) for the middle session.
- It would be tricky to come up with the three games for PbtA day, but they only gave me a week!
- Games I've Never Gotten to the Table Day I wouldn't want to pin down now, because the "top three" are always shifting around in my head, and I might sneak a one shot in here or there
- Star Wars Day would probably shift from Edge of the Empire, to Age of Rebellion, to Force and Destiny
- Marvel RPG Day would probably be Marvel Heroic in the morning and evening, with a throwback session of Marvel Super Heroes in the middle
- DC RPG Day is tricky, because I didn't play Mayfair's DC game nearly as much as I did Marvel Super Heroes, so I don't have the same nostalgic impetus to go back to it--I may just stick with DC Adventures all day, and if we need a palette cleanser in the middle, we might take a break to watch an animated block.
- Fate Day would definitely include Dresden Accelerated and the Secret of Cats--I may need to work some kind of sci-fi property in the middle just to balance things out
Even though I played in one playtest session, that still feels like a Game I've Never Gotten to the Table at this point. So for now, it doesn't get a seat at the table. Or a table with seats. However that analogy works for this scenario.
