Dark Future: Speed in Slow Motion

I was always interested in the Dark Future series and Blood Red States makes me wish they did a new tabletop version.


However as I was playing I found a game that mimics the tabletop wargame concept and if you don’t play it as such, you will lose.

Rollercoaster Tycoon – Run This Town

It can be difficult to run a RPG that is different to normal.

The idea of being a Shop Owner, Armourer, Tavern Owner or Trader doesn’t really sound interesting.
