Gen Con Loot

My RPG-related products from Gen Con 2019:

  • John Wick’s Play Dirty
  • John Wick’s Play Dirty 2
  • Troika!
  • Tiny Dungeons 2e
  • Mothership (Winner of Best Game 2019)
  • Dead Planet (Scenario for Mothership)
  • Monster of the Week: Tome of Mysteries
  • The Dark of Hot Springs Island (plus, a killer map to go with it)

I’m pretty excited about all this new material.

The most surprising find was Tiny Dungeons 2e. I had backed the first edition on Kickstarter a couple of years ago and wasn’t all that impressed, but this new edition, created by a new designer, looks excellent. The game stays simple, but the back 100+ pages are all mini-campaign settings. One is a dinosaur island! Done and done.

Monster of the Week: Tome of Mysteries was one that wasn’t even on my radar, but I’m glad I got it. It changed Monster of the Week to be more of what I wanted, which was Fringe and X-Files, not exactly Supernatural.

Hot Springs Island is the sandbox adventure I want to run for my 13+ players this year. My only trouble is how to make it an effective and believable open table game, but it looks doable. It looks like a good spot to try out this Into the Odd system I’ve been tinkering with. Super neat! The art is great, I love the tables, and I got a cool map to go with it!
