I could grab my old Car Wars gear and do an article. After all the other articles, that is. Oh, and podcast. Podcast and articles. Lulz.

The key word in the Dallas RPG description is "family," as in "Dallas is a family role-playing game."

Personally, I'd rather play Scot Free with the family. Looks like loads of fun.
