RPGaDay2023 Day 12: Old game you still play

“Old Game You Still Play” is the theme for Day 12 of the #RPGaDAY2023 challenge. Is it sad that I’m hardly playing anything so I can’t really say “still play”?

What vintage games that I would love to play (either again or for the first time) are as follows:

Star Frontiers– The science fiction game from TSR that I saw advertisements for, but never had a chance to play.

Traveller– The other old school science fiction RPG that I saw advertised everywhere. Like Star Frontiers, I never had a chance to play it.

Gangbusters– While there is a good Gangbusters B/X version that I’d love to play, I’d also like to try the original at least once so I could say that I’ve played it.

Aftermath– A post-apocalyptic game that I saw advertised in various RPG magazines. I have no idea if it was any good or just clunky. But, I’d love to try it out to form an opinion.

Gamma World– TSR’s entry into the science fiction/post-apocalyptic genre that, again, I saw advertised all over the place, but my friends were only interested in a limited number of games.

What old role playing games do you still play? What games did you wish you had played? Tell me about it. This article is open for discussion on the TardisCaptain dot Com Discord server. You can also email me at Carl (at) with any comments.
