In this episode of Rolling for Change, Woody chats with Jonathan Gilmour, Doug Levandowski, and Spenser Starke about the newest iteration of the Kids on Bikes series, “Kids on Brooms”. We are excited to get this opportunity to talk about Kids on Brooms and find out more about the makers of this promising new addition to your game library. We also spend some time discussing other impactful RPGs and we never mention Monopoly……………………………………………………………………….. (Drink!)
Sometimes we need to reach out to others. We need to engage in social pursuits and connection, even when we are not social distancing, but especially now in the midst of a global pandemic. In this episode we discuss the many ways that you can still game in the midst of social isolation.
In this episode Woody talks with Brennan Jordan of Roll for Progress (catchy name right?) about his work using rpgs in therapy practice.
We are so excited to share with you, a conversation we had with Doug Levandowski. If one of the roles of Rolling for Change is to identify games with the potential for self discovery and confrontation of the unconscious self, Kids on Bikes does this in a way that allows the players to totally bleed and be present. I think especially for those of us who are aging young rebels, this game offers an opportunity to explore your past and the stuckness that may come with the changes of our childhood and teen years. Either way, we hope this discussion with Doug will be enlightening. We also hoe that you will take the opportunity to go quickly and buy this amazing RPG. You can find it at Renegade Games, Drive Thru RPG, FLGS, and of course Amazon. Listen, buy, play! Enjoy!
In this episode, Brian and Woody discuss with Sean K Reynolds the Consent in Gaming document, recently released on Drive Thru RPG. Sean K Reynolds and Shanna Germain wrote this pdf to assist GMs and players alike to develop consensual games. Perhaps this is an oft missed discussion, but there are situations that come up, especially in role playing, where a contract for ethical and consensual play is necessary and will serve to enhance the experience of all players at the table. We hope you will come away all the wiser after you listen. We highly encourage you to go to: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/288535/Consent-in-Gaming?term=consent+in+ and down load this primer on what safe play can and should look like.
In this episode, Ginger, Brian, Suzi and Woody share their experience of Dicetower Con 2019. We discuss our favorite experiences, games played, and moments that rolled for change.
