Don't Rest Your Head

I’m still waiting for my copy to come from lulu, but I’ve also bought the pdf of Don’t Rest Your Head by EvilHat, and I am really really looking forward to try it.

My players are practically all Gaiman fans, so I think they will fit right in the Mat City setting.

Plus, I’ve been reading Actual Play reports, and the game really seems to hum: of all things, for such a light game, one of the spotlights is in the dice rolling mechanic.

A single dice roll will tell you who succeded, but also what “colour” the action will have.

A player can succed, but Pain (the dice rolled by the GM as opposition) could still dominate. The character would get to do what he/she intended, but it will be painful, in some way or another.

If you want to know more, check out the reviews on, like this: they are thorough and clear. Also, read at least an Actual Play report like this, or even listen to it (there are two or three podcast recording of game sessions). Plus… it’s cheap! :-D
