If there’s one surefire geeky pastime that doesn’t involve staring into a glowing rectangle, it has to be tabletop role-playing games. They’ve been around longer than electronic-based fantasy games and most of us really dig the heady combination of tactics and story.

Last week at Gen Con, the Annual EN World RPG Awards were handed out to the top role-playing products of the year, so now you have no excuse not to pick up a game and play. Ditch the Xbox and PlayStation and spend GeekDad UnWired Week with the best of the best in pen-and-paper games.
