There are many books that aim to celebrate the good in roleplaying and improve the roleplaying skills of their readers. Game Night isn't one of them. Sorry. It is instead the rather good and Gen Con ENnie award nominated fantasy humour novel of six roleplaying gods and their cosmically dysfunctional game.
"A Pratchett-esque debut novel of gods, roleplaying, and game-night kerfuffles ... Buy Game Night.
It's a fun, fresh, irreverent read that'll ring true to any gamer even if, unlike the protagonists, you happen not to be a god."
John Kovalic, Writer & Artist (Dork Tower)
The product of cult gaming writer Jonny Nexus's semi-deceased mind, Game Night is written in the English humour tradition of two of his favourite authors, the Discworld's Terry Pratchett, and the Hitchhiker's Guide's Douglas Adams.
"The best novel ever written about gaming. One of the funniest novels ever written about anything."
Steve Darlington, RPGNet ☆☆☆☆☆ (Style 5, Substance 5)
