So there’s this show called Rick and Morty. It’s about a mad scientist (Rick) and his grandson (Morty) going on adventures throughout time and space. In one episode, it is revealed that there is an organization called the Council of Ricks, composed of many Ricks throughout the countless parallel universes. In this special one shot, each player is a Rick and Morty team sent by the Council to investigate a strange alien planet. What secrets does this planet hold? Can a team of Ricks from very different alternate universes work together as a team? Probably not, but you may be surprised!
After saving the world from an evil cult during a summer road trip, a group of friends and their monster pals find themselves trapped in a strange world, where an omniscient narrator distantly rumbles life lessons about crossing the street and not washing clothes with gasoline, and that’s not even mentioning the flying monkey. Can they figure out what’s going and who’s behind it? Will the subcommittee reconvene before Mr. Speaker suspends the parliamentary session? Find out in this special one shot of Monsters and Other Childish Things!
In this playtest of a Gencon scenario written by Aaron, a group of kids look into a mystery and stumble across a time traveling conspiracy of Men in Black and even more sinister foes! When a friendly monster disappears, a group of kids and their monster buddies look for their friend. Their search takes them to a junkyard…on the edge of Forever. Well, I could post more, but I don’t want to spoil it for you. Does anyone even read these things? I don’t know. The important thing is that Aaron ran a great game.
Based on the children’s classic, The Secret of NIMH, this game is based after the events of the movie. A great evil threatens the inhabitants of the Thorn Valley.

As they journey far from home, they stumble upon humans threatening the valley, strange mysteries and monstrous dangers. Can they survive the final confrontation with evil? Find out in this special two session game!
I ran one of my favorite chapters from Road Trip at Fear the Con 4 with special player Chad Wattler from Fear the Boot. As before, the intrepid kids and their monster pals are investigating a strange theme park in Las Vegas called Sucrose Park. Kids enter but they never leave. At the center of the mystery is a giant brain and the bizarre mascot, Cool Rat. Enjoy! (Sorry about the noise levels but it’s unavoidable during con games).
