Here's an hour-long party game RPG for the evening slot. Although I'd really love to try Bluebeard's Bride, I don't think I can stay that late, so I'm offering this for anyone who's in the same boat of being able to stay for a bit of the evening slot, but not the whole thing.

Title: Ghost Court
System: Ghost Court, an hour-long party game
Slot: Evening
Players: 5-10
Clerk of the Court: James Torrance

Ghost Court is a game about ghosts and the people who sue them. It's an hour-long party game! It's a live-action RPG! It's a ridiculous legal process! It's written by Jason Morningstar, creator of the classic indie RPG "Fiasco"!

In a small claims court full of plaintiffs and defendants, testy judges, overworked clerks, and peace-keeping bailiffs—all of whom might be living or dead—you will see that spectral justice is done, one absurd case at a time.

Cases last a few minutes and are ridiculous. Will you be an over-the-top landlord, aggrieved at a scheduled haunting gone off the rails? Will you be a sad poltergeist who only wants to make a bad smell? In Ghost Court you might get to be both!

Thanks for the game, James.

I'm also offering another game for the afternoon, inspired by the "funky dice" thread:

Star Wars (FFG): Free Lezam Kigla!

Three years after the Battle of Endor, the Empire is in chaos. The Free Corellian Alliance has declared independence and stands against the remnants of the Empire, many little better than warlords. One such fragment is the human-supremacist Imperial State, led by the self-declared Grand Moff Cunha.

Cunha has kidnapped Lezam Kigla, an outspoken critic of the Imperial State and announced his intent to execute her. The leaders of the Free Corellian Alliance and remaining agents of the Imperial Security Bureau are reluctantly co-operating on a hastily-planned mission to rescue Kigla.

You are that team.

All you have to do is travel to Corfai, persuade Imperial State defector Brovu Gehme to give you some recent codes so you can sneak your ship to Nubia, heart of the Imperial State, break into the jail where Kigla is held, rescue her, and escape. And all that before the tensions between the Free Corellians and the Imperials boil over. What could possibly go wrong?

GM: Neil Smith
Players: 4–6

Title: Tainted
System: The Cthulhu Hack
Slot: Morning slot, 10AM - 1.30PM
Players: 4 (max)
GM: Paul Baldowski

Out in the deep woods of North America, a tiny settlement has fought to survive and won. When the travelling investigators arrive, they find proud, tough people and are welcomed with warmth and hospitality. Hard times behind them, why would anyone want to leave?

This is a playtest game for an upcoming supplement and your feedback will help shape the adventure's final form.

If you ran a game at Concrete Cow this year, or offered one which didn't run, you might want to consider bringing it to Spaghetti ConJunction in Birmingham on Saturday 21st October 2017. Post the details here or on our Facebook page:

We'd love to see you.
