It gets lost in the hubbub ever since Gen Con moved to Indianapolis, but each year the folks of TSR get together in a bar in Lake Geneva to decide the year's "Game Wizard," aka the coveted "I Won D&D" award. The last few years I've been slighted (the 2012 award went to +Jon Marr for the video where his giggling daughter was crushed to death beneath the DCC corebook; the year before went to +Erik Jensen for when he DM'd the game where his son turned a town of ghosts into giraffes).
But this year, I think I'm in the running.
Submitted on my behalf by a fifth grader in one of my playtest groups:
You should be able to click to enlarge. Here's the translation from the caption:
"The sad moment when you realize you wasted all your ammunition on the first monster."
So what might the judges infer about my game?
-D&D is largely interchangeable with DCC.
-Ammunition is finite. When you get a chance, flaming ammo is better.
-It looks like orcs have roughly 12 hp.
-Orcs have weak swords.
-It's okay to kill PCs with hordes of enemies.
I may accomplish nothing else of note, but I helped a 5th grader get excited about D&D. I win.
