Apocalypse World / First Time Roleplayers - Using AW as an Introduction
« on: January 25, 2012, 05:51:52 PM »
So, I've been participating in what has been called a Geek night for the past 3 years.  It started out just as a night to watch Battlestar Gallactica, but I soon introduced my friends to a variety of board games, and these have taken over Geek night.

Recently we began playing a game called Risk: Legacy.  Basically it is a game of Risk, but the game evolves each time you play it, and the world takes shape with each subsequent game (For the first 15 games or so).  Basically we've been playing and slowly destroying the planet.

This got me thinking about AW, and I've now convinced my friends to try AW once we finish our game of Risk, and set it in the world we have created (and destroyed).

Now my friend has been opposed to Roleplaying his whole life, he's a sports guy, so I figure I only have one shot at converting him. :D  I'd be looking at a 5 person game, three players having never RP'd before, one experienced gamer who has played 1 session of AW, and myself.

So, I was hoping for some advice on which playbooks I should include and which ones to leave out for a first time gamer.  And any other tips or tricks on how AW is different with people who has never played a tapletop RPG before.  And basically any other advice is always welcome.
