The Buzz

Misspent Youth is unlike any other RPG I’ve ever played[....] This is a game that lets us focus on the story, and makes it possible for old guys like me to imagine that we’re still young and fighting every day for something more important than a parking space.

— Wil Wheaton, host of Tabletop and awesome dude, among other things

[W]e have a few in our group that enjoy RPGs, and a few that merely put up with them since that’s what’s going on. [Misspent Youth] got even the latter category of player to invest his time and emotions into the game. Because of that, every player was firing on all cylinders, working hard to create an enjoyable and entertaining story.
