In this debut monthly show with Family Fantasy RPG, costaring TTRPGkids, we chat about spooky TTRPG recommendations that are OK for kids, our latest projects, and why we’re starting off this new show!
Based on monster trading card games, Gratitude Guardians is an awesome TTRPG for both fun and self reflection!
I’ve played, made, and/or written about over 100 different tabletop RPGs on TTRPGkids, and one thing that has very consistently made games easier for my kid and me between all of these projects is the inclusion of a cheat sheet or summary sheet. So, to help you with creating your own for a system you’re trying out or adding to a game you’re creating for others, I want to break down what makes a good TTRPG cheat sheet and why you should consider it!
DanD Made Easy has tons of trackers that help all players, but are especially helpful for introducing new players to the game! I’ve been chatting with Dan, the creator of DanD Made Easy, who provides his trackers and resources to youth TTRPG groups, and I wanted to showcase some of his work that that has helped me in my own games!
Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game is a TTRPG set in the same universe as the Avatar the Last Airbender and Legend of Korra series, giving you the opportunity to create and play your own character through self discovery, lore, and adventure in this amazing world.
Check out here for some awesome TTRPGs that feature cute and adventerous cat characters for you to play!
Nykki and Matt have been running Motley Kids, which brings kid-focused activities to conventions like Gen Con and Who’s Yer Con, for several years! After going to their room at Gen Con 2023, we set up this chat to talk about the importance of bringing activities for kids to conventions, their XP introducing their kids to the hobby, and some of their advice to make going to conventions with kids a little bit easier!
A Kid’s Guide to Tabletop RPGs is just that! It’s a wonderfully written book that’s made FOR kids to get a solid and understandable introduction to TTRPGs or discover new approaches to their existing TTRPG sessions.
TTRPGs are a great way to get kids reading by giving them something FUN to check out and enjoy… while also happening to involve reading… and there’s a lot of ways to help that process along! I cover how to make reading within the game accessible, why TTRPGs help with developing an interest in reading, and how to get players to continue reading after the game!
Monster of the Week is a TTRPG system that sets you up for supernatural mystery-solving shenanigans! This TTRPG is recommeded for teens but, as I saw in the charity stream I played in last year, can easily be made PG, and is a great system for offering player choice.
