Seller milledge1969 has 22 roleplaying games . . . that are not our type of RPGs. Probably NSFW . . .

Storm Giant's Castle ... epic

I know this is not "laughable" .. but it was the biggest laugh (maybe a new thread?)

Oh and Tomb of Horrors ... sometimes the only way to deal with something is to laugh ...

Actually the first time I played this the greediest most egotistic, uber competitve player started pillaging the the pews

Now the end result  ... that was laughable

Makes me smile even 25 years on

I ordered this -- sight unseen -- from Noble Knight a few weeks ago because I'd read it was a further expansion of the designer's Space Patrol/Star Trek rules, and I'd never heard of it. Terra Games' 1982 Starfleet Voyages. I laughed out loud when I pulled it out of the package.

From the box:

The Final Frontier holds Danger and Adventure for those who volunteer for STARFLEET VOYAGES!

A complete roleplaying system for interstellar adventure including a separate starship combat game, color counters, and special Gamescience HIGH IMPACTâ„¢ dice!


Love that little â„¢. As far as I can tell, it's "complete" because it appears to shove the Heritage Star Trek rules (with the words "Star" and "Trek" removed) with Zocchi's Star Fleet Battle Manual. Even funnier (to me), I knew the artist who did the cover. She used to do artwork for my Doctor Who fanzine at the time.

Are those dice in your bag, or are you just happy to see me?

Damn, if I'd have known, I'd have bought that damn thing!

[Its a joke based on the character I play in an ongoing C&C game - a gnome druid who has a "kangaroo pouch" from The Book of Marvelous Magic.]

With one of those, I guess no one could say you didn't have the "balls" to roll your dice....

The description kills me:

Kangaroo scrotum pouches are made from the scrotum of male kangaroo, and it's said to be very lucky; all those in possession of one is assured of a long life, happiness and healthy children.

Kangaroo scrotum pouches are unusual sentimental little gifts. Due to its uniqueness they are remembered for a long time.

It's a practical little thing to store jewelry, a cute bag for coins or small items. In Gold Rush time it was a popular bag to store the gold sand.

Scrotum pouch is a great sign to attract an opposite gender. Just place it on your car mirror


These attract the opposite gender? 8O   I just can't see guys or gals seeing these things and saying, "Oh wow!  A kangaroo scrotum pouch!  What a sexy guy/gal!  I want to meet them NOW!" 8O


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.

I'm more intrigued by this line:

Can't be very lucky, or the kangaroo would still have it. :lol:

"Hands off my scrotum" at the game table takes on an entirely new meaning....

Ok, so maybe that issue only RARELY pops up at my table, still.....

I wonder what the foreman would say at the factory that makes them:

"Have you met your quota of scrota?"

It looks like more of a party game rather than a true RPG . . . I hope.

Good grief - I had to google this one.  Not a lot of info out there, but a review from rpg.net...
