Just Arrived - Monster of the Week by Michael Sands

Awhile ago, I sponsored the IndieGoGo campaign for Monster of the Week by Michael Sands. Monster of the Week is a part of the burgeoning Apocalypse World hack ecosystem.

I was pulled into the IndieGoGo campaign with the one-two punch of Apocalypse World engine and “It models seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

And today it arrived.

I’ve read a good portion of the PDF, but didn’t finish it. I find game books are easiest for me to read in physical form – in fact most books remain easier for me to read if I have a physical copy.

To my knowledge, this game is the first RPG I’ve purchased from a New Zealander.

I’m looking forward to reading this book and giving it a try. I’m going to run at least one session before GenCon so I should have this in my repertoire of games that I can run at Games on Demand.

More importantly, when I mentioned that the game was partly inspired by Buffy the Vampire Slayer, my kids immediately perked up – they love Buffy, Xander, Willow, Giles, Spike, and company.

The challenge remains not enough time for all the games. At least we got a few hands of Tichu in this evening.
