Talk and Panel: The Unique Joys and Challenges of Running TTRPGs with Kids!
Tim Saucer and I will be doing a talk and panel at Motor City Comic Con (MC3) in Novi, MI on Sunday, May 21 titled: “The Unique Joys and Challenges of Running TTRPGs With Kids!”
Our XP ranges from home games with young kids to running camps to self publishing to mentoring and more. Come hear stories about our whacky games, learn about how to overcome certain challenges, and also just say hi!
About the speakers:
Tim is a parent, AI engineer, Michigander, and former director from Camp Quest! He has experience running TTRPGs with crowds at camp and finding ways to get new players up to speed and interested in the game as well as XP from home games with his family. Connect on Mastodon and Instagram!
