GURPS Day Summary July 29 – Aug 4, 2016

Thursday is GURPSDay, and below you can find the blog activity from the last seven days.

Over the last week, as of 400pmCST today, there have been 49 GURPS-Related posts from our list of 58 blogs that have popped up on the radar screen. That’s better! Plus, we picked up two new blogs!

The big news this week is that GURPS Mars Attacks! and the Discworld RPG are both GURPS Hardbacks, and both got out of the doldrums and got sent to the printer – possibly spurred on by an ICv2 report showing that tabletop RPGs grew by 40% this year. I blame GURPSDay entirely for this trend. All of it. Booyah. (Kidding.)

Not every blog posts about GURPS every week, but some are ridiculously prolific! The list is randomized, so different bloggers will be highlighted at the top of the post each week.

As always, if you’re interested in having your blog consolidated here, navigate over to The Instructions Page and drop me a line.

  1. Of course! The week I get off my ass and have a blog post ready to go the pull goes just before mine auto-posts. Oh well. You'll have at least one more for the next pull!

  2. Chiyonofuji and GURPS Martial Arts post killed at least 5 hrs of my life. I dived into the sumo wiki and all over. Really learned a lot because of this post.
