#RPGADAY, day 22

Which RPGs are the easiest for you to run?
Low-level D&D is easy to run, because the mechanics are all pretty straight-forward and the number of different options you have to take into account is limited. Also, the D&D tropes are all well-known, so you don’t have to explain any intricate setting details or genre conventions.
Dungeon World is also easy to run: it uses many of the same tropes as D&D, but it also invites player input — which means you don’t have to prepare everything. You’ll need some strong improvisation talent to make it work, though.
I haven’t run Rolemaster in a long, long time — but I could get by on sheer experience.
