RPG Reviews

Various members of the Big Red Couch used to have a habit of reviewing RPG titles as we encountered them, and so this is an archive of reviews both old and – as we write more – new. The original dates of publication are listed beside each title, although there will be some tweaks in placing the reviews here. Substantial revisions of original review content will be flagged.

It’s going to be organised in whatever fashion seems most sensible at the time: some books belong to particular game lines and can usefully be grouped together, others share systems even if they’re not made by one publishing company.

If anyone does something particularly odd, there will be a link to a guide for how their reviews work.

Key for following Kev’s reviews.

{Note: Anything not yet a link will fill in over the next while.  Dates from previous years are reviews written for other sites which are being reformatted for WordPress gradually.}
