My game alias is De Reel. I have found lots of interesting story game drafts abandoned all over the internet, but can't get my group of Grognards to try them. My intent is to gather a number of people interested in experimenting with short forms in order to gather play testing know-how, knowledge on improbable games, mechanics, or player strategies.
I am thinking things like Lexicon RPG, Oulipo games, one page RPGs published on Google docs, tongue in cheek essays in the guise of rules, drafts and orphan mechanics in which you see some promise (As the worm turns, A thin crescent moon hangs sickly pale, Gifted, PowerLunch a business-card game, etc.) and well established systems you want to try under peculiar, maybe extreme, conditions.
The format should be short, with a fast weekly one-shot session lasting 60 minutes or two (depending on the time zones we cover). This way we can drop in and out according to IRL and our interest in the experiment of the week, and still contribute to the long term project.
We need to know what sort of fun we enjoy : Finding games ? Testing limits ? Testing strategies ? Discussing the results ? Something else ?
Some of you already know what they want to bring to this picnic. Please, let us know who you are and what is your interest in the project.
