Roadworthy: Judge Matt “Ogrebeef” Seagle
What’s your name, where do you live (and game), and how would you describe yourself?
How did you first discover DCC?
On my 36th birthday I wanted to get some new games for myself and I saw that big beautiful rule book on the shelf at my local game store and picked it up at random. Fell in love after my first read.
As of “right now,” how many Road Crew games have you run in 2017? Or 2018?
I run a drop in every two weeks at Big Pete’s and a convention here and there. For 2018 It’s been 13 games probably.
What’s your favorite Road Crew game experience so far?
Having a player “get it” after getting over 20 level-0 peasants killed in dungeons. The moment he finally said “Wait a second, I will let someone else open this door.” Also, running a table of 15 players after the D&D DM was sick and I just merged his table to mine.
Tell us where you run your Road Crew games.
Big Pete’s Collectables on Lonsdale and 3rd in beautiful North Vancouver BC. Every second Saturday from 12-4!
What advice would you give to other Road Crew judges?
Be as open as possible with your table rules right away. For my drop in, I lay out the social rules as soon as they sit down so they understand the culture of the table. Everyone on the same page always means a better experience for new players.
Also, be as inclusive as you can. I run for mostly young people and a lot of them have social disabilities and this gives them a place to practice their skills in a safe environment.
