Welcome to TTRPGkids!

Tabletop role-playing games (TTRPGs) have many benefits to children (learning social and leadership skills, practicing math, gaining confidence in a safe place, making friends, family bonding… just to name a few) in addition to them just being fun.

My goal is to help you find the resources and tools that you need, all in one place, to make tabletop RPGs accessible, fun, and educational for your particular kid or class.

This site covers everything from indie tabletop RPGs to D&D recommendations, tips and tricks, podcasts, reviews, creator interviews, crafts, and more so you can jump in and have fun playing these awesome games with your kids.

Solo-journaling tabletop RPG review: GDEC, Global Dragon Egg Conservation

I’ve been meaning to try a journaling TTRPG with my kid for some time, and GDEC was a great choice to start with!  It has a quick premise to jump into, a good hook (I mean, you’re taking care of dragon eggs, so that’s a big win), and the prompts are fun to think about an answer.  Kiddo and I liked playing this journaling tabletop RPG game together, and I hope you do too!
