April 30, 2016: GURPS Makes It To Silicon Valley (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2016-04-30)

http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2016/MiddleditchThumb.png (http://www.thomasmiddleditch.com/)Actor Thomas Middleditch (http://www.thomasmiddleditch.com/) plays a nerd on HBO's Silicon Valley (http://www.hbo.com/silicon-valley), but apparently he's actually very cool in real life: he plays GURPS (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/). The actor talked about his favorite RPG on Late Night with Stephen Colbert (http://www.cbs.com/shows/the-late-show-with-stephen-colbert/video/5527D868-844D-CCBC-54E0-311C019BD496/thomas-middleditch-reveals-just-how-nerd-you-can-go/). Stephen is a bastion of geek knowledge himself, so the fact that Mr. Middleditch was able to school him a bit on our game*was pretty neat in and of itself. As if one name drop wasn't enough, he also mentioned GURPS in a CNET interview (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hq_vgi-ofmU)!*

If you haven't checked it out yet, or are new to RPGs, GURPS*Fourth Edition (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/Basic/) is a great jumping-on point. Open up your world to any setting you can imagine, and take the dive into a really fun game with limitless possibilities. With all this heat, we should work on a new tagline. How about: "GURPS - RPG of the Stars"!
