#RPGaDAY Day 28: Scariest Game you’ve played

The scariest game I ever played in was the old Game Designers Workshop classic Dark Conspiracy 1st Edition.  A near future horror game involving all sorts of strange going ons but tied together with a relatively consistent background.

I vividly remember this one game session becoming more and more engrossed with the atmosphere being set by the GM that it became almost like being hypnotised; our collective consciousness focussing on his voice more and more until someone in the house banged a door which made us all jump out of our seats.

I’ve never experienced anything like that since.

About the Author

I've been gaming on and off since about 1989 and during that period have played with numerous game systems. I'm fluent in a few, have a basic understanding of quite a few more and can get by in others. Somewhere along the way I found time to be a playtester, contribute to an unpublished game supplement and be associated with another gaming magazine written by far more talented people than I. This lead to one infamous article being written in which I followed the letter of the adventure and torched the parties river barge. I'm also listed on as a game designer.
