I have a friend currently teaching English to South Korean students and has hit upon the idea of using tabletop RPGs to help increase their vocabulary and ability to think through problems in English. Now she was planning to do this with AD&D since she is familiar with that from her gaming days but I thought I would pick the brains of the Story Games community for alternatives that might be better suited to the task.
Ideally we are looking for:
A game with easy to understand rules
A game requiring minimal equipment (unsure of dice availability in South Korea)
A game available for download (unsure of quality shipping to South Korea)
I am especially interested in the opinions of any non-native English speakers as to what games translated well to your culture both in terms of language and genre. If anyone actually has first hand knowledge of gaming resources in South Korea that would be wonderful to hear about.
Thanks in advance for the advice!
