At the Knights of Trinity, we rate the complexity and content of our games, to ensure that you know what kind of game we are advertising, and what you can expect when you sit down to play.
Some games are “crunchier” than others – more complex, or requiring some background knowledge to get the most of them. Whilst these should never be considered a barrier to playing a game, it’ll give you some idea of what you’re in for!
Each category is rated using the following scale:
Sometimes, the gamesmaster may not be using the whole setting, and so may limit the setting. We represent that on the rating with a “notch” at the appropriate level, thus:
The gamesmaster will start with a general idea of the sort of game that they are intending to run. Much like a video game, that content can be broken out into categories. We use the following ones, taken from the PEGI system:
Once again, there is a scale:
In addition to these ratings, if there are any specific elements of the game that the gamesmaster might have a concern about, then they will be listed as well.
And that’s all there is to it!
