a game review blog
After playing it last night, Shawn Tomkin’s Ironsworn has probably become my new favorite RPG for multiple session play! It is elegant, flexible, and evocative. I will try not to burden this review with too much detail on the mechanical design. I’ll just say, as a gamewright, I am thoroughly impressed. It has de-throned Dungeon World as my go-to game for campaign play. It’s marvelously innovative and deliriously fun! I hope you give it a try soon!
Mids Meinberg’s The Warrior’s Journey, is a powerful solo journal RPG that really opened my eyes to how moving the genre can be. This game has some very challenging themes and images. I was skeptical that it was going to pay off. For my money, it does and Meinberg has earned heaps of respect and trust from me for sticking the landing on a fairly brutal game.
