100 things you have to do to play like the Old Days, or less...

I guess you have seen those books, or websites with lists like "100 movies to see before you die!"?

This is the XX things to do before you have fully tasted the Old Ways of Gaming. Maybe not all deadly serious

  1. play stable style
  2. had mass battle
  3. encounter green slime
  4. play the strategic game - both small and large scale
  5. play a Braunstein
  6. play Diplomacy
  7. design your own magic item
  8. design a monster of your own
  9. use a house hold item as a prop
  10. stabbed a fellow player character in the back
  11. had a solo run
  12. house ruled magic and combat
  13. encountered hi tech in a lo tech world
  14. played a game of multiple sides amongst the players
  15. had a player character die from a critical hit
  16. painted a lead figure of your player character
  17. figured out how to randomly roll, with even distribution, results from a table like this even there are more entries than sides on your die

Feel free to fill in with more.

For the real deal about playing like they did back in the days in the mid west, check out Jeff Berry's blog.
