Weave is a new way to play tabletop games. It does something I never really considered in all my years of playing Dungeons & Dragons, Hero System, and Werewolf. This is why I am doing this, instead of innovating how we play. Weave is a “smart” Story Teller screen. Something akin to D&D light.
Using NFC connectivity and app downloads to create characters and play out stories, the screen and cards guide one story teller and at least one player through a story full of challenges and interesting locations. I miss the traditional tabletop gaming of my younger years. The timing and resources required were becoming too much to handle, but it seems Weave may just be the perfect way for a quick game to get rocking and rolling.
Will Weave be as deep as traditional pen and paper games? I’m not positive it will be, but we will let you know once we get a chance to put our hands on the device.
