This Monday, Sept 2, is an American National Holiday, Labor Day. My gaming group (and whomever else we can wrangle to show up) are gathering for something we thought up called Gaming Hors D'oeuvres. We'll be sampling board games, video games, but mainly focusing on small pitches of roleplaying games we might want to play in the future. The rule is that whatever we do is limited to 1 hour or 1.5 hours, whatever can deliver a gaming "bite". This would be something that gives the flavor of the game. It might be character generation, or a small scene, or a full game based on what system is used. Pregens are recommended but not required.
Have you ever done anything like this? What games are on your collective minds that could deliver a "bite" in those constraints?
