Looking for a spacey tabletop RPG for kids?
I made this list so you could find a whole bunch of space themed tabletop RPGs for kids in one place! There’s games about running a ship, space trash, Dr. Who, and exploring other planets for kids (of any age) who love spacey sci-fi stories.
I’m hoping this help parents, teachers, caregivers, and anyone wanting to share space-themed adventures with their kids, but, with that in mind, I also know that everyone is different, so please make sure to review each game yourself too with you and your players’ needs in mind. I did my best to sort through the games here so you can have an easier time reviewing and picking some options that will work for your particular players without having to search around, and I hope you enjoy the games!
Suggestions for adding to this space tabletop RPGs for kids list
If you have a recommendation for a game to add, please let me know through the TTRPGkids contact form so I can consider adding it to this list or my big game list! I’ll be adding to this list as I come across more games, so stay tuned! For recommendations, I’m looking for space themed games that are geared at kids or are intended for all-ages as they are currently published.
