Too often we have to make a purchasing decision based on a couple of sentences in a publisher marketing announcement. The purpose of these reviews is to provide more information about these products so you can make an intelligent decision about buying the product.

  • I buy everything I review. No exceptions.
  • Contact me at bryce0lynch@gmail.com  (that’s a ZERO in there.)
  • I archive all of my reviews at RPGgeek. I believe that its association with BGG means it has the best chance to survive the transitory nature of the Internet.

    Just discovered your site and I love it. The archives will be giving me ideas for month. Will you be running any games at or during Gen Con this year?

  2. Bryce Lynch says:

    Sadly, no. It’s a Family Con, so I play what my kids want to play.

    Hi Bryce, I really enjoy your reviews! I wanted to ask you, what are the retro-clone systems you are currently playing/have played/rate the most? I’m a 2nd ed guy, and with this whole OSR movement, suddenly there is a treasure trove of interesting modules out there. Since I never played the older editions, I don’t have a strong affinity for a particular iteration. I wanted to ask you for your recommendation: would I get the most out of picking three separate clones – one for OD&D, one for BD&D and one for AD&D 1st ed? Or could I kill 3 birds with one stone with something like Castles & Crusades? Also, I’d like to draw your attention to this ruleset: http://rolesrules.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/new-52-pages-draft-download.html
    I played it in a convention with the guy who made it, and really enjoyed it. You might find it interesting. All the best, and keep these reviews coming!

    52 is pretty cool.

    I like Basic D&D/Magenta the best, but, in actuality, I like rules light systems and tend to run everything the same way anyway. Black Hack, Basic, and 5e are what I use the most these days, depending on how much I have to market. Everything but 4 is pretty much the same anyway, except for the power curve.

    Hi, Bryce. Is there a reason you don’t link to product purchase pages in your reviews? I always find myself futilely clicking the thumbnail and then combing through Google.

  6. Wayne Goldsmith says:

    Thank you so much for your reviews. I really appreciate you wading through the muck to find us gold nuggets.

    Dig your site. Was even mentioned in a review once!
    Didn’t see an email for you, but what happened to The Throne of the Gods review? Email has a broken link and search doesn’t show it. Hope all is well!

    Don’t forget the About Bryce … thread.

    You went nuclear without any dialogue, that’s cowardly.

  9. Edgewise says:

    Hey Bryce, here’s the ping you requested.

    I thought I already left one but I don’t see it now. Oh well!

  10. Bryce, thought you and the fans here would enjoy this. A lot of territory you have gone over….

    Where are your own created OSR adventures?

  12. Jeremiah says:

    Do you pick all the adventures you review personally, or is there a way to solicit a review?
