Ah, yes. The strip that launched a thousand shares. And also, an ongoing ad to Leisure Games themselves!

Managing expectations it the basis for most types of fun, doubly so for a social activity such as a role playing game. You should do some managing before the game – but you should also do it several times throughout the game, and the lull between adventures is as good a time as any. Rotem buying new, specially chosen dice for the game is a sign of investment – which is important both for the players (to increase and maintain interest) and the GM (signaling that interest). More on this, on this Thursday’s post.


Reminder: we’ll be attending Concrete Cow this Saturday!
