I’m back today with another repost, this one for the Jane-Austen inspired game Good Society. I’ve waxed poetic recently about about the diceless game Wanderhome and Jay Dragon’s other Belonging Outside Belonging game Sleepaway is also amazing, but my first diceless, GM-optional game was Good Society and it remains firmly ensconced in my heart.Continue reading “Repost: Good Society Review”
I haven’t talked about Good Society in a while but it remains one of my favorite games on the market. It’s so wonderfully written and easily lines up with the genre. There’s more to offer, though, and Storybrewers’ Expanded Acquaintances book with many different additions to the game.Continue reading “Good Society: Expanded Acquaintances”
A lot of people are celebrating holidays this week, so there’s no better time to review the magical supplement for Good Society.

Get ready for social climbing and magical cottages!Continue reading “Pride, Prejudice, and Practical Magic Review”
When I reviewed the regency-era RPG Good Society, I was pretty complementary. One thing I didn’t get into at the time, though, is that Storybrewers have a whole wonderful series of expansions planned for the game that stretch and explore what it can be. Today I’m taking a look at the swashbuckling expansion of flashing blades and masked identities: Sense, Sensibility, & Swordsmanship.Continue reading “Sense, Sensibility, & Swordsmanship Review”
I’m so excited about the game I’m reviewing today, Good Society. I helped to Kickstart this game after being completely won over by the tone and look of the game. This Jane-Austen-inspired game is both wholesome and tactical, it’s robust but straightforward, and it’s got a team of creators who are so enthusiastic and determined to make your game succeed. There are lots of different types of games out there and this one so excellently does what it sets out to do that I want to say up front that I think anyone even remotely interested should go out and get it.
