Patrick and Eric discuss Storytelling Games

They start off discussing the many different kinds of storytelling games:

  • RPGs 
  • Escape room games 
  • Detective games 
  • Graphic Novel Adventures and Choose Your Own Adventures 
  • Board games with story elements
    • Tales of the Arabian Nights - Agents of Smersh
    • Rory’s Story Cubes
    • Above and Below
    • Near and Far
    • Dead of Winter (the original Crossroads game)
    • Forgotten Waters
  • Games that are so thematic they lend themselves to the players telling stories without overtly having storytelling mechanisms (e.g. Fortune and Glory) - Colosseum
