TTRPG BOOK Review: Roll Dice, Build Character

I usually review games, BUT Roll Dice, Build Character by Mark Hasen seemed like a great fit for the TTRPGkids site – it covers the benefits of kids playing TTRPG’s and discusses some of the concerns or questions that parents may have. This is a great read for anyone on the fence, just starting out, or trying to convince other parents to let their kids join the table!

Interview: Host of Raised on DnD, Nick Cardarelli!

I exchanged interviews with Nick from Raised on DnD podcast and had a great time chatting about his introduction to TTRPGs, how he introduced TTRPGs to his kids as young as 2.5, and how gaming has benefited his family! He runs an awesome show that has featured guests including his own kids and Luke Gygax, and he has a clear passion for family gaming that I hope can help inspire you to get into it as well!
