Top 100 Role Playing Games

By Michael

To prove just how nerdy I am, I decided to compile a list of the top 100 Tabletop RPG’s. (I left D&D, Pathfinder and FIasco off the list).
The list was compiled using the opinions and sales stats of: Learn Tabletop Games, Ranker, Listverse, List Challenges, Best in Tabletop, Drive Thru RPG and

Some of these are systems, some are games, and some are supplements for games or systems.

Here are the results:

Episode 1 Fiasco: Dragons Slayers Part One

In our inaugural episode, we introduce ourselves and tell you about our gaming backgrounds and interests. We then explore the group storytelling game from Bully Pulpit Games: Fiasco.

In Dragon Slayers the adventurers have just slain the dragon that has been terrorizing the village. Now they are hanging around to absorb the accolades of the town and divvy up the dragon’s treasure hoard. But something more sinister is going on behind the scenes. Will any of the adventurers survive to enjoy the spoils of their victory?

Fiasco: Dragon Slayers Part 1

We had a great time (again) playing the group storytelling game Fiasco. Our session is from the viewpoint of regular folks and gamers playing the game Fiasco. In Dragon Slayers the nerds are a group of adventurers who have just rescued the village from the great dragon. The adventurers are still in the village accepting the accolades of the villagers and apparently plotting how to destroy each other at the same time.

There are several podcasts out there which feature professional actors, writers and improvisers playing Fiasco. One of my favorites is called The Tilt. Look for it in itunes or stitcher. They have not published a new episode in a couple of months, but they do have several episodes available now.
