RPG Geek

In case you haven’t heard, the folks that brought us BoardGameGeek will soon be opening the doors to a sister site called RPG Geek. Currently, the website is is an open beta which I am participating in.

It’s an interesting plan, extending the Geek into new areas to capture new audiences. I’m just not seeing RPGGeek having quite the same utility, though.

Don’t get me wrong, I like have a resource to organize my RPG collection. It makes me realize even more just how many games I own (and rarely, if ever, use). I just don’t think that the BGG rating system translates to roleplaying games all that well and I don’t know if the world needs another RPG community.

Needless to say, I’ll be keeping any eye on things over there and, occasionally, entering some obscure RPG that I own. When the Open Beta ends, I hope you’ll check it out and let me know what you think.

Oh, and if you’d like to participate in the Open Beta (I don’t know how much longer they’re planning on running it) you can sign-up at their Google Group. They’re still taking requests.
