Has anyone tried out Ben Gray’s Swapnote RPG yet? Talk about thinking outside the box! Go brush up on that spark of genius and then come back here.
It might be a little daunting to give this project a spin, especially if you are completely unfamiliar with traditional pen-and-paper role-playing games. To that end, Ben whipped up a brief tutorial video and shared some sample rules and dungeon maps (in the gallery below) to get you off the ground. Hopefully, these clarifications will encourage more people to take a chance.
Actually, I think the real reason Ben made this video was to show off his dice collection. Speaking of dice, you best be playing the Swapnote RPG in a local setting, because I can totally see playing via SpotPass as inviting the same wholesome tactics as a round of BattleShips. Yep, I totally rolled a 20! Don’t believe me? Let me send you a photo of my die with the 20 facing up!
