Talk to me about Stakes, those questions you write as part of your fronts.
When you write up a front, how often do you write stakes questions?
What are some of your favorite stakes questions that you’ve actually used? How did they turn out? What lead to them turning out that way?
How has their presence shaped your games?
I’m thinking about the games I’ve run over the years, and looking at notes, and I’ve realized… I almost never right stakes questions. And when I do, they’re more like blanks that I’ve left, to decide on later, rather than questions about how things will actually play out.
So, I’d love to hear your experiences. DW or other PbtA games that use them! Please share.
