Gangs Jr. was my first foray into playing wargame style TTRPG’s, and it actually worked really well as an introduction for myself, in addition to being a lot of fun for my kid. We ran a very fun water balloon fight across a map covered in blocks and toys, and loved the simplified system for getting both a newcomer and a little one into a new type of gaming.
Jump Rangers is a full game system (complete with gear, a creature list, lore, characters, and stories) that plays out like an epic space opera! The storytelling was great, and kiddo loved using special powers to resolve some exciting scenes – go high and go far, Rangers!
Dino Riderz is another awesome game setting released by Family Fantasy RPG, this one focusing on… dinosaurs! The Family Fantasy RPG system is a tabletop role-playing game designed for all ages, stepping in difficulty depending on your child’s age and including lots of awesome additional activities to complete during these storybook style adventures!
I played Babies and Broadswords with the creators of the game and had a blast! It’s a perfect balance of mechanics (not too easy and not too hard), and it was a great throwback to mornings watching Rugrats with my siblings. I had a lot of fun, and I highly recommend playing with both your kids and your grown-up tables!
I played Overgrown with my 3yo, and we had a lot of fun! The chaotic combinations of creatures that make up the player’s characters was a HUGE hit with kiddo (who picked an Owlcat named Owllie), and the d20 only mechanics were easy for kiddo to understand. We ran a fun adventure that started with chasing a flock of sharkbirds (which we are calling a tornado of sharks) that were trying to steal breakfast from some mice, and had a great time letting my 3yo navigate the story from there! I hope you have a great game too!
It’s heist time! Take on the role of a mischievous raccoon bandit and pull of a daring and exciting heist using fun prompts in this 1-page TTRPG!
