#GenCon19 Day 3

It was back to Games on Demand, again. Miles and I got to try out Maze Rats. I confess I have avoided a lot of the “OSR” space due to encountering so much toxic behavior from that community. That said, this was a simple and fun game, and I may add it to my toolbox along with new-school old-school games like Whitehack, Torchbearer, and Vagabonds of Dyfed.


We also got to try out another card-based RPG. I’m always eager to try these, because I love cards and have been tossing around ideas for my own game for years. Capers is a dual-named game because in it you play both supers (caped, get it?) and are involved in prohibition era-capers.

We had a pretty inexperienced (I think?) GM, so I’m not sure I got a good shake of this game, but I learned enough about how it’s setup to see what I liked and didn’t.


Saturday was also the day I got the David Peterson AKA Mouse Guard commission of our beloved dog Siku!

Had to plug back in the trailcam solar charger because some critter had yanked it out. Hope I got of funny closeup of that happening! 🔍

Took my kayak on its maiden voyage, today. Really stable and really easy to steer, even in the wind. Gonna have a lot of fun with it. 🛶
