I’ve decided to start reviewing more gaming material here on the blog. Don’t worry, the Friday Five reviews of blog posts will still continue, but I’ll trickle in game reviews as I get them done. I don’t have a schedule or deadline setup for myself just yet. You’ll get them as I get them done.
I have eight shelves of RPG material (this is not counting the plethora of RPG material I have in PDF format.) I wasn’t sure what I wanted to review, so I rolled a d8 to pick a shelf. It happened to be my GURPS shelf. I have a good chunk of GURPS 3e and all of the hardbacks for GURPS 4e on that shelf. I rolled an even/odd die to see which version to review. It landed on the GURPS 3e stack, so I counted up the books. I have 27 in all (I really thought I had more.) Rolling my handy d30 landed with a number one.
That pointed me to the top book on the stack: GURPS Blood Types.
So… I’ll be reviewing that book over the course of the next week or so. It’s a 128 page book (counting indexes and such) so I think it’ll take me a week or two to really go over the book well enough to review it. This is one of my odd GURPS books in that I own it, but I’ve rarely used it in game. If memory serves, one of my good friends (Craig) gave me the book because he somehow ended up with a spare copy.
Time for me to stop babbling about the selection process and the history of how I got the book. Time to start flipping through the pages to see what I can find!
