Shoot the Rookie asks: "which video game series would you most like to see a VR game for?"
Many of you who follow Adventure Rules likely know Athena of the gaming blog AmbiGaming. She’s a regular in community events here and a great inspiration to me as a blogger. You ever wonder how she got her start? Well thanks to Adventure Rules Remastered and the December 2017 Charming and Open event, you can read all about it! Go check out her origin story and give her a follow if you haven’t already!
A while ago, I stumbled across a blog that was having a “Charming and Open” blogging collaboration. I was intrigued, and so left a question for one Robert Ian Shepard of Adventure Rules, and received a question in return. Little did I know that this blogging collab would turn into a wonderful blogging relationship, full of adventure, competition, and great thoughts on gaming culture!
Although usually much more civilized than this!
Imagine my delight when I found out Ian was hosting another Charming and Open event, exchanging honest answers for honest answers from any blogger that wanted to pick his talented mind! In exchange for my question that Ian has promised to answer (and will be linked herewhen it goes live), Ian posed the following to me:
“I would be interested in hearing how you got your start. What inspired you to create AmbiGaming…

While the partnership between last year’s Blogger Blitz champion Ellen and Bowser, King of the Koopas, didn’t go so smoothly during Black Sheep, they had quite the fun time together in the December 2017 Charming and Open event! I’m sharing the post again here as part of Adventure Rules Remastered, but be sure to go and check out Lightning’s original work on her snazzy blog Livid Lightning!
I’m still kinda devastated by Bowser’s heartbreaking Blogger Blitz defeat last Friday at the hands of Marjolaine. Alas, I should have never trusted her! Anyway, I decided to honor the big guy by re-posting my Bowser themed response to another great Adventure Rules community event I participated in last year called Charming and Open. Basically, you asked the gracious host Ian a question, and he gave you a question to answer in response. The questions were answered in the form of blog posts, thus creating a great sense of blogging community togetherness!

Our adventure through the December 2017 Charming and Open event is coming closer and closer to the end! Tonight, let’s revisit this excellent submission from Art of Redress all about an anticipated game announcement for 2018. If you missed it back during the event or simply want to revisit this enjoyable community event submission, be sure to check it out and give Art of Redress a follow!
At the start of December, I asked to be part of Adventure Rules’ event ‘Charming and Open.’ His explanation of the event is as follows;
“Charming and Open is inspired by a move of the same name in the tabletop RPG Dungeon World. In the game, it allows a character to ask a direct question and get an honest answer, but there’s a catch – in speaking openly enough to ask that question, they give the target the opportunity to ask a question on the same terms. This idea of an open exchange of questions to which both parties must give an honest answer is the basis of the community event”
So, I asked him what his redress would be – was there a game he wanted to complete but had missed out on?
The question posed to me was;
“What are your dream game announcements for 2018, the ones…

For this morning’s edition of Adventure Rules Remastered, we’re revisiting a great Charming and Open submission by The Gaming Diaries all about the video game vehicle she’d want to have in real life. I loved the practical considerations she included and her ultimate conclusion is quite interesting. You’ll definitely want to check this one out!
Robert Ian Shepard over at Adventure Rules posted a Charming and Open community event. The idea is that you can ask him a question about video games, tabletops or blogging, and this question will be answered in a blog post. In return, if you choose to accept it, he will ask a question which you can answer in a blog post. This sounded fun and I eventually thought of a question… although I asked one that was asked the first time this event was run. I really should have checked first (sorry)! However, as my question was quite open he decided he could answer it again with a different response. So my question was “If you could take a holiday in any gaming location where would you choose to go and how would you spend your holiday there?”. In return I have been asked “If you could choose one mode…

It’s the weekend, which means it’s time for some more Adventure Rules Remastered! I’ll be sharing more posts from the December Charming and Open event, and this one was submitted by Chris at Overthinker Y. It’s all about what he would be like if he was a villain, which is an interesting coincidence given his recent participation in Blogger Blitz: Black Sheep. Go check it out and see his evil plans come to fruition!
The cool and collaborative Ian of Adventure Rules has just started up an event about getting lots of people to ask each other questions, and then… well, answer them. It’s called Charming and Open, and you can read about it (and I think you can still enter some questions, if you’re game) on Ian’s blog here. The essence of the thing is that lots of bloggers are encouraged to get involved, get to know one another, and generally spread the love, which is always nice and worth doing.
I’ve given Ian this zinger of a two-parter, which I’m sure he’ll have a brilliant answer for: ‘Which gaming character would you least likely to meet down a dark alley, and which would you most like to have by your side to protect you if you did happen to run into them?’
In return, he’s two-partered right back at me: ‘if…

In December of 2017, I hosted an event on Adventure Rules called Charming and Open where folks could ask me questions and I would ask them questions in return. We then both made a blog post in response. This submission was made by True Video Games, and it’s all about revisiting an old favorite. You’ve gotta check this one out!
In 2001, I was 11 years old and was walking to my friends house just down the road. I would always go to this particular friends house more often because his family had what appeared to be two houses stacked on top of each other. The top “house” was for his parents, and the bottom section was for their kids. It was pretty mind blowing as a kid and ended up being one of my favorite hangout spots.
It appeared to be a man laying in a pool of water, quietly contemplating. There was no sound, other than the calming water lapping against the side. As the camera focuses on the man, a rock ballad…
