Roleplaying Games in the Train

Once again, DM Brad will be running short one-shot RPG sessions in the second class carriage of the train at GeekFest 2017.

All Outta Bubblegum:

You're here to kick butt and chew bubblegum... and you're all outta bubblegum. In this super simple RPG, players are given a mundane task to perform, by rolling under the number of pieces of bubblegum they have. When they fail, they lose bubblegum. Which means eventually they run out of bubblegum and have no choice but to KICK BUTT! Ever wanted to travel to melbourne on a rocket-propelled emu on rollerskates just so you can get your uni enrolment in on time? Or use ninja stealth powers to steal a phone simply so you can be the first of your friends to download the Korumburra app? Then All Outta Bubblegum is for you.

Everyone is John:

John has problems. He's hearing voices in his head, and those voices keep telling him to do strange things. In this quick to learn competitive RPG, each player is one of those voices, vying for control over John as he spends the day at GeekFest. Each voice has three objectives they want to achieve, and a bunch of skills to try to achieve them, whether it's lifting ducks above your head, drawing moustaches on medieval enactors or smuggling an emu out of the park. At the end of the session, the voice who has achieved the most wins.

Both All Outta Bubblegum and Everyone is John are freely available online if you want to check out the rules before playing.
