I have a confession to make. As much as I enjoy RPGs, I’m not very good at them. There is volumes upon volumes of information to be assimilated. Basic rules, advanced rules, rules for the different character types, rules to create your character. That’s just what the players need to know, nevermind the theoretically all-knowing GM! Why can’t it be simpler? So simple a child could run it.?
Ladies and Gentlemen: allow me to present No Thank You, Evil!
The latest offering from Monte Cook and Shanna Germain, of Monte Cook Games, is described as “a tabletop game of creative make-believe, adventure, and storytelling.” It’s not aimed at the hardcore gaming audience, but more towards their kids and families, or anyone’s family for that matter. In fact the rules can be tailored to each players level of play, allowing young children to play, and well as older kids, and even adults.
The Kickstarter campaign has already funded, so this game will be happening. The only real variable now is how much extra stuff will come with the Basic Box, Kickstarter Exclusive Box of Awesome, and the No Thank You, Patience edition which gives you the PDF and all the updates and previews that the playtesters get starting shortly after the campaign ends. There are some really cool upper tier support levels too.
The Kickstarter campaign runs through June 10, so go take a look at their website ( www.nothankyouevil.com ), Like their Facebook Page ( www.facebook.com/nothankyouevil ), and for the love of all that’s good in the world go back it on Kickstarter ( https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/montecookgames/no-thank-you-evil-a-game-of-make-believe-for-famil )
