As you guide your cursor over the blue avatar a strange feeling of dread comes over you.


Us folks over at RPG Geek would like to invite you all to our corner of the site for some Play-by-Forum gaming. If you've ever wanted to try out a Role Playing Game before, now's your chance!

The goal of this initiative is to help bring people into (or back to!) the RPG hobby and to get them active in the RPG Geek Play-by-Forums. We played over 200 games in our forums last year, and we aim to play more this year! Many of us found our way to RPGG through these New Player Initiative's and our numbers are growing! As such, we are launching this across all three domains (although BGG and VGG are the focus for this as we are running short on food for our mascot).

The games have been hand picked for this event. You won't need to buy any books and the rules will be explained to you. The only thing you need to bring is a bit of your spare time!

You'll find a range of games on offer to suit most any taste. Feel free to ask the Game Masters any questions you might have before signing up. You'll find the geeklist of available games here...

2017 RPG Geek New Player Initiative Sign-up

Please take note:

Until January 17th, the following two rules are in place. Please adhere to these rules when signing up for a game. As soon as it is January 17th where you are, the floodgates will open and new players may signup for a second game. At that time, anyone having prior experience with RPGG PbFs will also be unleashed upon the world! Thank you for your cooperation, and have fun!

d10-1Signups are currently open ONLY to players NEW to RPGG Play-by-Forum games!

d10-2Each new player can only sign up for a single game!

Everyone who participates will get this commemorative microbadge!


Many of the games involve rolling dice, and because we have the GeekDieRoller at our disposal, it's a snap! You can find out all about the die roller and a great deal of other useful info by following the links below.
