Well, I’m off to the UK Games Expo in Birmingham this weekend, attending both Saturday and Sunday (which we did in 2008, but not 2009). Having the night there means the day can be more relaxed, providing more chances to play and the chance to get involved in stuff starting in the afternoon. I would like to play Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space, but right now it looks like it won’t be running until the end of Sunday – just when I’m going to be heading along home (long drive).

I’m kind of wishing I had the chutzpah to run a game of my own, but I’m such a damned wimp. I’m enamoured by the potential of running a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy game using the DWAITAS system, which seems like a perfect fit. I could use the sample player character sheets right out of the box without any effort, running a game part-adventure, part-knockabout. I can see it being a bit like classic PARANOIA or Tales From The Floating Vagabond, a chance to play and have fun, but with a lower death toll than the former and a little less slapstick than the latter. We’ll see, you never know…

Maybe I’ll be consigned to playing – and getting annihilated in – a game or two of Agricola or Dominion; but. here’s hoping, that I’ll get a chance to play a RPG session (or two).
