Publisher's Summary

Often, we treat games like work. We buy shelves of thick books. We plan detailed adventures. We memorize rules. In Play Unsafe, Graham Walmsley explores what happens when you throw the serious stuff away: when you stop working, stop planning and start playing. This book explains how to make role-playing less like work and more like play; stop killing other players' ideas and build on them instead; and put stories at the heart of your game.

Life-changing

My perspective on RPG is completely changed. It's about how to relax, have fun, run great games, cool story tricks. It turned my world upside down. Just listen to it, It's great!

Brilliant book, must read for all GMs and players

I hesitated before buying this book, because it's short and the cover isn't well designed, but I bought it anyway. Money SO well spent! Absolutely brilliant advice, I think it should be a must-read for anyone who plays RPG games. If my group had read it a year ago, so many mistakes would've been avoided, playing would've been so much more fun. The fact that the book is short is a great thing - there's no fluff, the author gets straight to the point, and gives you useful practical tips right away. If you're new to RPGs, or unfamiliar with improv, or looking for tips on how to get better at playing - get this book, it's fantastic.
