Discussion Episode 21: Abandoning Games Round-table

During our interview with Vincent Baker, he agreed to tell us about a secret project in exchange for a promise to have him back on to discuss the topic of abandoning games. With GenCon right around the corner, this seemed like a great time to hold up our end of the bargain. We grabbed two of Vincent’s good friends Joshua A.C. Newman and Robert Bohl to join us in this discussion since, well, none of us here at The Walking Eye have designed, let alone abandoned, a game before. Kevin moderated as these three discussed the different aspects of abandoning games: how difficult it can be, what you can learn from it, and how to know when to let an idea go.

    Kind of surprised you don’t know much about Apocalypse World. I decided to preorder it, more or less on a whim, and it’s taken over my brain. I started running a game from the PDF (though we’ve only had two sessions so far) and I’ve also started working on a hack (because that’s the in thing to do these days, apparently) of it inspired by the old WoD game Wraith: the Oblivion (because, goddamn it, we need more RPGs in which the PCs are ghosts).

    You know, to be honest, I didn’t see much point. It’s not like I wasn’t gonna get it, ya know? No reason to get all antsy about it, when I have plenty of games that are OUT that I need to play, heh. I have no doubt AW will take over my brain when I buy it at GenCon.

  3. Robert Bohl Says:

    Hey Kevin,

    Thanks for having us on. I’d love to try to play AW with you at Gen Con.

  4. PeterBB Says:

    You guys really need to do a series of AW games here. That would be really, really awesome.

  5. Kevin Weiser Says:

    Worry not, Peter. AW will be covered!
