Reverb Gamers Prompt #21

Atlas Games is doing this thing called “Reverb Gamers 2012″, with 31 question prompts to kick off 2012. I’m going to post one up each day, including weekends, throughout January. I invite you to do the same! And check out @ReverbGamers on Twitter or Facebook.

REVERB GAMERS 2012, #21: What’s the best bribe you’ve ever given (or received as) a GM? What did you get (give) for it?

My only response is to be somewhat disgusted by the question.

    If you’re sincerely disgusted, you may be taking it more seriously than intended. Every GM bribe I’ve been involved in or witnessed has been humorous, with payouts ranging from nothing to almost nothing.

    Agreed with the first poster. There’s a running joke in one of my regular games that whoever brings the GM a bag of sweet chili Doritos gets an extra fate point. Just so happens we all love that flovor of Doritos so we end up having enough to munch on. The extra fate points are never given out…duh. If your group is mature enough to carry mutual trust, the “bribe” thing is silly and fun. Sure, I’ve been in a couple of games (and I didn’t stay in the groups for more than one or two sessions) where there was obvious GM favoritism going on (boyfriend gm girlfriend player is the worst.) That said, best bribe ever? Several shots of Buffalo Trace bourbon…

      Or maybe it’s a questionnaire where our own interpretations mean something? But it’s cool, I guess, to tell someone their opinion is invalid.

      It’s nice that y’all have jokey times with this. Not everyone has. Ask any group where the girlfriend-of-the-GM ran the show because of sex.
