21 Reasons 2014 Was the Best Year Ever for Tabletop Role-Playing Gamers

Putting together a list of the best hobby game, and game related, products of 2014 wasn’t an easy task. In order to make the list manageable, I gave myself three rules. First, I was going to group related products. Second, I allowed myself to select 21 products instead of a more reasonable 10. Third, I didn’t select any official Pathfinder gaming material. I created that third rule because if I didn’t, the list could have easily been filled with nothing but Pathfinder stuff. Paizo put out some great products this year, but Topless Robot readers already know that.
Here are 21 products I think made 2014 the best year ever to be a tabletop gamer.

The key to this list is that they will be “strange” for one reason or another.
