Covers that Capture the Spirit of the Game

These are in no particular order. The spirit of the game to me is wonder, silliness, getting out of tough scrapes, and having a story to tell that makes others wish that they were there.

There are so many more things I could post like the cover of the 1st Edition Manual of the Planes, the cover of any Tekumel game,the cover of Warrior, Rogue, & Mage, Hackmaster, Renegade Legion, TSR’s Marvel Super Heroes, Champions, Shadowrun (recent edition), Usagi Yojimbo, covers of all the Sine Nomine games, and Bushido.

Last and not least, the real spirit of the game is conveyed by ‘zine covers are all kinds. I mean Crawl, Gongfarmer’s Almanac, Hack, Crawling Under a Broken Moon, Wizards Mutants Laser Pistols, and Black Pudding.
