Specifically I am referring to MONSTERS & OTHER CHILDISH THINGS.
It’s a One Roll Engine game about children who have their own personal pet monsters which can’t be seen by adults. But can eat adults.
And… I tried it with my Monday night group as a one off to cover absence of a couple of players. We went WTF at it and put it away after maybe half a session.
And now I read in an article in PYRAMID that it was supposed to be a comedy game.
I don’t know what I thought it was exactly. It struck me as being about the horror of childhood. But not in a funny way.
And now I wonder if it was obvious to anyone else. Anyone…
