Tabletop RPGs for kids and teens: A sortable list of amazing games!

This sortable list of tabletop RPGs made for all ages, kids, and teens is to help you find a game that works for you and the kids you are introducing TTRPGs to! I want to help you find a game that you and your kids will both enjoy playing together!

Jump to: The list of tabletop RPGs!

The purpose of TTRPGkids is to help you bring quality tabletop RPGs (from indie games to D&D) to your kids!

Check out these other popular TTRPGkids topics too!

My goal with this kid, teen, and all-ages TTRPG list:

My goal is to eventually try out the games on this list and write reviews on this site so you know what to expect going in. This way, you have one central place to go to for finding kid and teen-focused tabletop RPGs and can get all the information that you need.

I play and review a couple games per month, so stay tuned on the site or get on board for the monthly newsletter to help keep up to date! I have mostly started with TTRPGs rated for either all-ages or for very young kids since my kid (and primary co-playtester) falls into that range. As opportunities present to set up games with older kids, and as my kid grows, I am expanding upward to make sure I cover game reviews for every age group.

Ratings and mechanics in tabletop RPGs for kids, teens, and all ages:

I determined the sortable features by the creator’s information (either on their game description or by asking them) or by 3rd party game reviews (if the the information was not otherwise available). So, the ratings and mechanics for each tabletop RPG on the list are my best estimate based on information available online to help you find a game, but they may differ from your views. Before introducing a TTRPG to your child, you should also research the game to make sure it is appropriate for you and your child’s specific needs and requirements.

For age ranges, tabletop RPGs labeled “all ages” mean they were intended for a wide audience (kids and adults) and shouldn’t contain any content that isn’t also OK for little kids. However, the mechanics may be too much for very young children (<5yo) in some cases.

As I playtest and review each tabletop RPG with my kid, I will update the ratings and mechanics in the list so that it’s easier for you to pinpoint what’s right for your particular kid.

Recommendations and corrections to the TTRPG list:

If you have recommendations for additional tabletop RPGs to add or if you see a correction is needed, please contact me through the site’s contact form. I am happy to make updates and want all my information to be correct.

For recommendations, this list’s goal is to have tabletop RPGs (or game supplements) that were made for kids, teens, or all ages (i.e. with the intent of being accessible to both children and adults) versus games made for adults that one could say are OK for some kids and teens to play. I am willing to branch out and will research all recommendations, but just a note in case something doesn’t ultimately end up on the list.

List of 230+ kid, teen, and all-ages tabletop RPGs!

    1. Thank you! It was a lot of research to put together, but it was also an awesome learning experience to see all the different games and systems out there.

  1. My wife and i got so joyous that Peter could do his studies using the ideas he made out of your site. It is now and again perplexing to simply continually be freely giving secrets and techniques which often many people may have been making money from. We remember we need you to be grateful to because of that. Those explanations you have made, the straightforward website menu, the friendships your site aid to promote – it is most impressive, and it is helping our son and our family believe that the idea is pleasurable, which is certainly exceedingly essential. Thanks for all!

    1. I am so happy you are enjoying the site and it is of value! I really wanted this to be a free resource and accessible to everyone, and comments like this make the work worthwhile to me. You are very welcome, and I hope it continues to bring joy and to support a love of TTRPG’s with your son and family!
