    Excellent post! The one thing I think is worth adding is there are games that you can try before you buy. Head to the FLGS and see if they have D&D or Savage Worlds or any other game you want to try. I know I have a few odd games in my arsenal that I never get to run as I never have any players. I’d love to run some one off games showing of 13th Age or Gumshoe or Planet Mercenary, but no one ever asks.

    And, even if you don’t get a chance to play, ask the bearded regulars at the game store their thoughts on the game. If you’re brand new starting out, they might have some interesting insights into various games they’ve played (expect negativity to be unfairly highlighted. Its what we do)
