I took my DCC crew through a simple bandit encounter. The party is escorting a wagon. They scout ahead through a notch between two mountains. Bandits send an avalanche to separate them from the wagon and take the wagon backwards and off the trail to a cabin.
That was it. The party chased them back, took out two lookouts and are now reconnoitering the cabin. Three hours is engaging play. No monsters, no magic used against them.
They were very engaged.
I think this is something great GM’s already know and I just got my first taste of it.
How’s your game going?
