Hex Games As you can see, we've redesigned the Hex web site for the first time in quite a while. With the new version of the site, we've tried to account for the new ways people use gaming websites in the age of social media, which means getting rid of things like the dedicated forums that for the last few years have mainly only served as bait for spammers. We've also done our best to integrate the site with things like Facebook and Twitter. The slider on the right edge of page points to our social media pages (mouse over to see our latest posts) and the one on the left lets you share content on popular sites. You can also comment on most articles using your Facebook account below the article.

The Finer Points of Teaching Rules The board gaming hobby brings child-like fun to adults. This grade of fun exists at the core of board gaming and cannot be found in most other adult hobbies. Having tapped this "premium" fun is what keeps board gamers longing for gaming opportunities and eager to experience new games. Yet despite the fun present at most tables where games are being played, some board gamers lack one skill essential to assuring that every game experience is as fun and enjoyable as it could be. That skill is teaching the rules. Characters with Character: Random Personality Generator If you're enjoying the content here, check out our new site, Thoughtcrime Games. Thanks for visiting!

I don’t know about you but when I sit down for a one-shot game with a pregen character, I can’t always come up with a unique and interesting personality on the fly. Sometimes the class, race and skill combo strikes a chord, but usually it’s just numbers.

Don’t Call It A Comeback: GameCamp 2010 By Kieron Gillen on May 10th, 2010 at 7:47 pm. This is the second Gamecamp. Organised by awesome people, hosted by PayPal/Gumtree/eBay with food from Pizza Express and booze from Unity, it works on the unconference model. In short: a conference without a plan. People turn up. Anyone who wants to try and run a session, can do so.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab: RPG The RPG Series Illustrations by the inimitable Julie Dillon. “You all meet at an inn.…” Pen and paper role-playing games have been a tremendous influence in my life since my formative years. My parents bought me the magenta D&D boxed set back in 1982, along with the Player’s Handbook, Dungeon Master’s Guide, and Monster Manual. My lifelong passion for fantasy, science fiction, war games, and mythology was well-channeled through RPGs, and I credit playing D&D with helping me sustain my imagination and sense of wonder through adulthood. I played with one particular group through the bulk of my late teens and early 20s, and this series — along with the atmosphere tools that Black Phoenix Trading Post has introduced — was inspired, specifically, by the time that we spent campaigning together.

Gaming with Kids: From D&D to Fiasco It’s official, 4E D&D is a dead at the after-school gaming club. At the moment the students are really grooving on playing Fiasco – we’ve played three weeks in a row and I’ve had new kids showing up wanting to play, or just watch, based on word of mouth. That’s really odd (and cool) to me since having run the club for the past eight years that’s not something I’ve experienced. Unlike the D&D games I’ve run (including both AD&D and 4th edition), the kids are fully engaged, attentive, and actively participating. It’s really enjoyable to watch, and more importantly, to play.
