Do you think a question on "what system-agnotic-non-book-buying geeky gifts" is appropriate? My family wants to get me cool RPG geeky stuff for Christmas and I'm coming up short on ideas.

I'm a little concerned that it might be seen as advertising products, which is not the aim. The aim is to get a list of system agnostic coolness to use at the table.

I imagine such a question would become community wiki.


No, but not for why you're thinking.

Lists... are not so good. Lists that are certainly going to be out of date, or horribly broad are doubleplusungood.

If you can phrase it as a game-recommendation question such that it can actually have an answer by fulfilling a specific need, great. But "give me list of stuff!" not so much, no.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks, Brian. I felt as much. I can't think of a better wording for it. I might have to blog it or something to get some ideas. \$\endgroup\$ – Dr Rob Lang Nov 27 '13 at 13:13

    \$\begingroup\$ There are RPG forums where you could ask this, too. \$\endgroup\$ – doppelgreener Nov 27 '13 at 22:09
