Tabletop RPGs

You’d be right to ask why we would feature something like tabletop games here on Oemsie a travel and photography blog. Call it experience. As we’ve travelled the world we’ve come to realise there’s many different ways to connect with people and one of our favorites turned out to be tabletop role-playing games. Especially so on cold wet days you’re not able to be outside enjoying nature.

Tabletop role-playing games, RPG for short, is a form of role-playing in which the players describe their actions through speech. There’s normally a formal set of rules and guidelines which determine how to game plays out and what the characteristics are of each player. The game normally has a game master who describes the game environment and determines certain actions not determined by the rules, guidelines and throw of the dice.

The most famous tabletop RPG is probably dungeons and dragons, which can be players by beginners but tends to be very involved and complicated for some.

Below we have listed the 10 best selling tabletop RPGs for beginners.  Beginner games tend to be more straightforward and easier to get into.
