#RPGaDAY2018 - DAY 23: Which game do you hope to play again?

Day twenty-three of #RPGaDAY2018 asks "which game do you hope to play again?"

So many games! So, so many!

We've just finished playing an epic game of Tales from the Loop, running through the "Four Seasons of Mad Science" that is in the core rulebook, and that was a complete blast. Really enjoyed playing that, and look forward to playing Tales from the Loop again sometime in the future.

I guess I could dial it right back on the way-back machine and think of the old games that I used to love and haven't revisited. I mean, I'd love to play WitchCraft again, but I'd be tempted to run it with cinematic Unisystem instead of the full "classic" Unisystem. I kinda miss playing urban fantasy horror. The Mage/Kult/WitchCraft game that we played over many years was awesome.

Further back, I'd love to play James Bond again, just to see if it is still as much fun as I remember. Still one of the biggest influences on me, along with the Ghostbusters RPG. I still have the complete set of the Bond RPG (minus the mini-games and the Assault desktop battles game) and it's still a gorgeous work. I started thinking about merging the system with Vortex a while ago... maybe I'll give it another tinker sometime.

I did have a weird desire to reread Star Frontiers, going way back to my start of gaming back in the early 80's. I wonder how that holds up after all these years?

There we go, what do you hope to play again?

Until tomorrow's question, stay multi-classy!!

I’ve been thinking of doing some spy-fi, and I’m also looking at Bond for the engine.

Aha! Yes, I still have Douglas Dickens around somewhere. It was a lovely system and well run by you, you sad fan-boy. The only weakness I thought was the fame points thing - it was practically impossible to stay anonymous and still succeed in the scenarios - very much more Roger Moore than Harry Palmer (although John did try). I went to ridiculous extremes to try and avoid getting fame points but it never worked.
Oh and from a personal viewpoint - why did everyone take the piss out of me for perving it up? It was James Bond FFS and we were adolescent male nerds! What else were we supposed to do?!?!?!?
