Hello /tg/, /a/ here,
Any really simple games like this that I can print and play with my friends? I want to advance this to 3-4 players but I'm not a Fa/tg/uy and can't think of a way to do this

Bump for interest

... you could try DnD?
draw a battleground yourself like pictured. Set up some monsters from the monster manual. Give your players some premade classes that you can design yourself or steal from the starter pack, and there you go. Nothing required except character sheets and a selfdrawn battlefield.

3.5 would probably be best for this? I don't know if 5th still works as well with the grid system since it's more freeform.

There are proper board games like this, but I can't think of any on the top of my head and they wouldn't be able to just be printed.

There are a lot of old games about on this level of complexity, but I have no idea how you'd find them. I've never seen a repository of them.

If you're okay with roleplaying games there's some one page rpgs you can play. I'm sure someone here has a folder of them.

One page RPGs sounds cool.

I'm a literal virgin to DnD so it's very intimidating. I might try that out though.

If you don't wanna create an adventure, use a precreated module. I got my start with Sunless Citadel. It's great for first timers. Make sure you have a solid grasp on the mechanics though. If you don't wanna run 3.5e though, some of the starter adventures for 5e work just as well

Hey /tg/
Here is a thought I just had.
What if we all try making some of these one page games based on our favorite systems?

No. Fuck off.

OP, what you want to do is find some quickstarts and play those. Many have enough material to last two sessions and you don't need to worry about building characters. You can find them on sites like RPGnow or directly from the publishers.

Here's the a quickstart PDF for Terra Primate to start with.

Free easy RPG, everything you need in a single page.

Actually, One Seven Design (pretty much just John Harper, his playtesters, and whoever does the layout, right?) is full of this kind of thing. Some of it is pretty good.

Lady Blackbird gets a lot of love for being easy to get newcomers playing. It's basically steampunk-ish Star Wars/pirates with pregenerated characters.

There's also DEATH SCHOOL, which is hilarious and is basically the Lady Blackbird system except you're playing out an over-the-top 80s action movie. Complete with all the minority PCs being required to die.

Don't be intimidated by DnD, you don't need all of DnD for your purposes. All you need are to read the combat chapter, pick out what you want in your game and ignore the rest of the special actions. Then simply use starter characters and premade monsters and have it be the rules for how the two interact.
You can ignore the rest of the system at your leisure.

Thanks a lot for all of your suggestions. Time to take the big leap into being a fa/tg/uy.

If you feel like boardgame-ish vidya, there's
www.desktopdungeons.net
i think they still offer the old, freeware version for download. What it is, is a miniature, screen-sized roguelike that plays more like a puzzle, a solitaire. P. amusing.

Try Ryuutama or Tavern Tales.
Both are easy to pick up.
