Review Burp & General Updates

KoDT #251
Last month I reviewed OneDice Supers with EN World, and my review of World War II: Operation Whitebox published in Knights of the Dinner Table #251. Both received positive reviews. Little similarity between the two, other than being complete RPGs.

OneDice Supers is Cakebread & Walton's Superhero themed RPG published for their popular OneDice system. Simple. Easy. And though not aimed at youth or people who've never played an RPG before, it should certainly be up to the task. Rare, but I got to run a handful of sessions with this RPG, before I wrote the review. The review on EN World is here.

Side Note: A popular purchase through my affiliate links since my review on EN World published is OneDice Space. And if you prefer the route of frugality Cakebread and Walton has you covered  with a Pay What You Want version: OneDice Quickstart.

WWII: Operation Whitebox
World War II Operation Whitebox is exactly the sort of product I like to see from an OSR creator. I wouldn't call myself a "fan," (in fact I somewhat despise the term) but I've had the opportunity to look at few products by Small Niche Games and Operation Whitebox is gem among gold pieces. The game use Swords & Wizardry as the engine, but it has a lot of options for telling stories, dodging grenades, and gaming the deadliest conflict in human history.

Last month was pretty much a total time suck. I made the choice to change how reviews appear on this site, reformatting and editing nearly all of them. I changed some labels, which had me delving into old posts... Finished and published Map! Fief Bend (actually that is a +); and was rather shamelessly promoting it. Added a google search tool, a disclaimer and privacy policy. I'm also taking my second shot as an Amazon affiliate, but nothing to report there. While changing the blog is not exactly a sexy endeavor it might help a bit with SEO (search engine optimization)... Time will tell.
