Once upon a time, we played RPGs with books, papers, pencils, dice, and beer. OK, the beer wasn’t actually part of the game, well, it’s not in the rules, but it WAS part of creating the mood.

Those days are, by and large, behind us, with WoW (and others of its ilk) effectively supplanting face-to-face gaming. Well a team from Carnage-Mellon University may have found a way to bring back the good ol’ days. The paper, books, and dice may be gone, but it’s close enough to make me nostalgic, and willing to shell out the massive $$$ for a Microsoft Surface device (whenever those hit the stores).

What do you old school gamers think? A return to the days of yesteryear? And will it bring new converts to our old way of gaming?
