RPGaDay2023 Day 20: Will still play in twenty years time

Day 20 of the #RPGaDAY2023 Challenge and the question is “What game will you still be playing in twenty years time”.

Good question.

I can’t really give an exact answer on this. Perhaps a game will be released between now and then that knocks my socks off. The answer could be one of those as yet undiscovered systems.

If I had to select something that is published now, It would probably be one of the D20 variants or something that is not too complicated. Having re-visited or first reading some of the various games for the Character Creation Challenge has made me realize that I don’t want to deal with overly complicated systems that are too crunchy. I don’t need a bazillion rules to enjoy a game. Sure give me a ton of content (I love reading about the many fan homebrewed material that has popped up for Star Trek Adventures or Doctor Who Adventures in Time and Space RPGs) because I can’t get enough of that. But as for the rules themselves, let me explain it to a potential player in a matter of minutes.

What games do you think you’ll be playing still in the future? 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.
