After reviewing Cloven Pine Games’ “The Tabula Initiative” a few weeks ago, I knew I had to get it to the table. It’s a great little game that’s easy to teach, easy to run, and, as I hope you’ll agree, lends itself to tell fun and engaging stories.
The story we ended up telling is not one featuring a heroic spy fighting against a corrupt system. Instead, Richard plays an absolute bastard. Enjoy!
Oh, and trigger warning. There are several allusions to harm to children throughout this episode. Nothing is ever graphically described or happening “on screen” but I want to give a heads up in case that sort of thing squigs you out.
