Princesses of the Pizza Parlor by Maikel Yarimizu is the story of and uncle running a tabletop role playing game for his niece and her tween friends. It’s a fun tale that follows their character’s adventures in the game… and the drama between the players outside of the game as they navigate their friendships. I enjoyed the read, and I hope you and your kids do too!
You’re (Not) A Wizard has the awesome premise of getting accepted into magic school… except, you have no powers. Have some fun shenanigans as you fake and fumble your way through wizard school with your friends!

I got to try out Mages & Macrophages! This is a FULL game kit that comes with everything needed (DM screen, minis, maps, dice, character sheets, item tokens, and more) to really just sit down and immediately start playing a game. PLUS it has 5e compatible simplified rules that took maybe 5 minutes to understand. I was really excited to try this out, and I had a great time playing this with my family!
These cheat sheets look like a great way to help 5e players, new and experienced, and especially kids, to plan and understand their 5e characters – everything is laid out and explained on one sheet, with graphics to help with quickly identifying different sections! Check out the Kickstarter if you are thinking of trying out 5e with your kids!
I had an awesome chat with Navaar, creator of Secret Nerd Podcast, a diverse interview show about different experiences with TTRPG’s. As a father of three toddlers, Navaar offered some great insight about concerns that parents may have when starting TTRPG’s with their young kids and some great questions about next steps. We were able to do a little bit of a reverse interview and hopefully address some of the, probably very common, considerations that parents, teachers, and caregivers make when starting to introduce TTRPG’s to their children.

I was very fortunate to play a pre-release copy of Adorablins, and had a great time using it to have some super cute, goblin-themed adventures diving through portals and rescuing everything from a cake to a missing cow across distant lands such as Dinosaur Island and New York City!
