Sure, the holiday season can be a little stressful, but the best way to break out that weird family energy is to play a fun table game! Don’t make the same mistake I made when I introduced Dungeons & Dragons to my parents by allowing them to flirt with each other during the game. It was deeply uncomfortable and I absolutely do not recommend it. Happy Holidays!
The Lord of the Rings – Lost Odyssey: The Red Scribe
Game Master Kate Welch is leading a new one-shot charity campaign set in Middle-earth. According to a press release, Lost Odyssey and eBay are launching a program leading up to the event, “where both fans and businesses can buy and sell products that benefit Extra Life, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals program that has raised over $100 Millions to fund essential life-saving treatments and healthcare services, as well as innovative research, vital pediatric medical devices and services for children’s lives across the country.

New Releases: The Sticker Game, Old Gods and Young Guns, Everyday Heroes
The Sticker Game: An audio drama experience for solo journaling
“The Sticker Game is a single-player, part journal, part audio drama experience that combines sci-fi, fantasy, and whatever sticker genre the player brings to the table. Stickers are the key to influencing other realities. Team up with the agency on their “universal research project” to gain access to the included energy stickers. Participants must be brave, creative and willing to make difficult decisions. Using audio tracks and proprietary technology, your guide will help you decipher the strange biochemical properties of the stickers contained to manipulate the radon field of electromatter between universes. This is a delicate technology. What could possibly go wrong?”
“Old Gods and Young Guns is a system-independent settings guide. It describes a space fantasy western setting inspired by Jack Kirby’s New Gods comics. The guide provides details about the world of Outward Space and the history of the dead gods who left great power. The guides include information about what life is like in this environment, possible character archetypes, and a specific look at a location with named locations and characters to unhook plots from, but it doesn’t contain game mechanics.
“Get into the action! From the excitement of blockbuster action movies to the combat options and tactical gear of first-person shooters, adventures in contemporary environments offer a wide range of possibilities and challenges. The Everyday Heroes RPG has everything you need for a modern day campaign, be it car chases, computer hacking, radiation hazards or just loads of guns. Along with flexible rules for creating characters, from hardened soldiers to ingenious inventors and masterminds, these rules open the doors to playthrough of almost any modern storyline. This complete core rulebook for game masters and players brings the ease of Season 5 of the world’s most popular RPG into the modern era.”
“Race your friends to be the first to unleash the whims of your capricious and unknown god upon the world! Play Ritual Race with 2-6 people, choose the god to follow, recruit cultists and sacrifice them to eerie abominations!”
“The Wandering Lake is a single-player journaling game in which you – a being of questionable power – define a nameless mountain, an ephemeral forest, and a settlement at the edge of the world. Your duty/destiny compels you to recover a missing lake. Will you rise to meet him?”
“The Test of High Sorcery is a solo Dragonlance adventure module co-designed by Kienna Shaw and Donathin Frye. It fuses choose-your-own-adventure elements with D&D 5e to create a solo gaming experience. There are thousands of different paths and over 60 different outcomes as you pass a magical test to prove yourself worthy of becoming a true High Sorcery Mage.”
