#RPGaDAY 24: Humour

Day 24 of #RPGaDAY 2020. Today’s prompt is ‘Humour’.

There are many ‘humouristic’ RPGs. I find that most of them do not work for me — to me, humour is dependent on situation and timing and an unexpected view. I think RPGs can set up a situation, but timing and unexpected viewpoints can’t be planned in advance. The humouristic RPGs I’ve played were mainly aimed at slapstick, and did not really get me laughing.
That is not to say that I haven’t had plenty of funny moments while playing RPGs, but those emerged organically from the play, and were not set up as such.
Or maybe I’m a bit of a grump with a stunted sense of humour?
