Rolling for initiative…

There are so many activities that exist in the world that us humans do to distract us from life’s every day woes and get some much needed R&R. But sometimes, the most fun we can have is as simple as getting a good group of friends together around a table with some paper, dice, and our imagination! Tabletop RPGs have been around forever and one of the very few positives of the pandemic was how much the genre exploded in popularity, and finally being more accepted into the public mainstream. And while most people are really familiar with that one RPG with dungeons and dare I say dragons, there are a bountiful amount of tabletop rpgs that exist in the world waiting to be played! So join Tuong La and his party of misfit companions Sascha Lecours, Josef Addleman, Bryan Robinson, and Jordana Heney (Page of the Wind) as they roll a critical hit on ranking Top 5 Tabletop RPGs.

Ground Rules

  • In a Ranked first, Tuong will not be nominating and act solely as moderator and host (since his knowledge is at a noob level for this topic).
  • Accessibility is one of the key factors when nominating games as we understand these types of games can get very daunting for many.
  • Also ranking based on the amount of room that game allows for players to really engage with it to tell a story and have fun with.
