#RPGaDay 2016: Day 24

I am participating in the #RPGaDAY2016 blog marathon hosted by BrigadeCon

What is the game you are most likely to give to others as a gift? This is a tough one, top four are Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set for 5th Edition, Shadows of the Demon Lord, 13th Age, or Savage Worlds Explorers Edition.

But I think my choice would be Shadow of the Demon Lord. The game, in my opinion, is both "old school" and "new school" at the same time.

The game engine is easy to teach and hums along in the background and is internally consistent. Character generation is quick and intriguing. My players plan out there characters but in a fun way, not from a min maxer point of view. Building opponents is quick and easy and the Gamer Master advice is brilliant.

It is currently the only game line that I buy completely in PDF and print.
