Today’s question is “What is a good RPG to play for sessions of 2 hrs or less?”
Technically, a GM can plan for any RPG session to be played in 2 hours or less. Unfortunately, players don’t care how long you planned a session to be. They’re like “Why would my character be searching a haunted house?” or “Oooh, I want to look in that drawer!” or “What does this spell do again? I can’t find the page.” Just awful!
You need a game that gets the players to the action quickly and doesn’t bog the action down with tomes of rules. A perfect game for that is Tiny Frontiers: Mecha and Monsters. Mecha and monster creation is quick and easy. The rules are minimalist and simple to understand making gameplay flow smoothly. Best of all, the premise of the game allows you to strip away a lot of extraneous story and just get right down to punching kaiju. You can spend the majority of that 2 hours having a great time.
