So yesterday was Reapermas for me, and I find myself sitting on 250+ minis that I’m dying to use. Aside from engineering a 4e game in which there are giants and deep ones and space marines featured, it occurred to me that a great use of these minis would be a DW game, particularly one situated in the city of Dis (give everyone personhood, right?). Obviously for me it’s because I got my Bones, but anyone with a sizable minis collection from years of roleplaying can benefit. Lay out all suitable minis on an end table or something nearby.
When an NPC is named, one player stands (the first one to stand? The last one to act? Randomly determined?) and takes a mini from the table: this is now the NPC in question. The player then states why they knew this was the person mentioned, and picks the adjective that best describes them.
Seemed like a fun addition, even if you don’t use minis or maps (that is, of the combat grid variety).
