And it only lists the systems. It doesn't tell you all the stunning scenarios being run with them. Plenty of A-team action, Dads army, Agents of Shield etc etc. if I hadn't been determined to test my new system (putting me near the top of the list with my 5 games of "Manifold") I still wouldn't have been able to play in every game I wanted. Innovation all around.

The one that fascinated me most was the idea to run Intrepid Friday night to create a SteamPunk world for a Code of Steam and Steel game on the Sunday.

Yes, Neil, it was a vintage year.

Dude, you rock! Thanks for putting that all together. Just one correction - the runequest game was called "The Cradle" and there was a savage worlds game about Lanhkmar (which was awesome). On a lighter note, there were no HEX games- they were all HEE games! :-)

My 'Dinner with the Ito' Empire of the Petal Throne game used an OSR based system. You got the name of the scenario but missed the system.

There was also a three linked sessions game (I don't know how you're counting them) of The Clay That Woke which I can't see up there.

Do Slot Zero games count? I ran Vox Populi on Thursday night.

I also ran my first playtest of A World of Difference on Friday night.

It depends what you count. We played parts 2 and 3 of the Poison Tree in Trail of Cthulhu but it was 6 sessions worth.
