hey, since I'm not well versed in systems - do you know any systems that are good to play with small groups (2 players, one GM?)

@ingalacornicum Off the top of my head, that's the perfect number for both and (both by Ron Edwards).
Are you also interested in games for 3 people with no one designated as a "GM"? I play a lot of those.

interesting, gonna check those out! and yeah, no GM would probably also work well!

@ingalacornicum Awesome! Some you might check out include:
Follow, by Ben Robbins
Kingdom, by Ben Robbins
Spione, by Ron Edwards
Shooting the Moon, by Emily Care Boss
Polaris, by Ben Lehman
Ribbon Drive...
That's just for a starter. I could go on and on.

@ingalacornicum Also, Bliss Stage by Ben Lehman is another one that satisfies your original request.

As are Dogs in the Vineyard by Vincent Baker (now out of print) and it's hack The Princes' Kingdom by Clinton Nixon.


@ingalacornicum ideal for , not as famous as the ones above, and not from the USA, that I love:
- Archipelago, by Matthijs Holter (available for free online)
- Society of Dreamers, by Matthijs Holter
- Okult, by Wilhelm Person
- On Mighty Thews, by Simon Carryer (has a "GM" role)

It goes on and on! Check these out, then ask me for more.
