5 Second Rule

Tiny Tome, Tiny TTRPG Review: 5 Second Rule

Congrats!  You have superpowers (!!), but they are limited to 5 seconds.  Maybe you can only turn back time by 5 seconds or maybe you can only gain super strength for 5 second intervals, but you still need to escape, complete daring feats of super heroism, and have adventures!  Use these limits to get creative and work together to use your powers to their fullest.
Princesses of the Pizza Parlor - part 1

TTRPGkids BOOK review: Princesses of the Pizza Parlor

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!
Mages and Macrophages

TTRPGkids game review: Mages & Macrophages by Ampersand RPG

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!
The Hero's Tale

TTRPGkids game review: The Hero’s Tale

I found out about The Hero’s Tale while reading Roll Dice, Build Character, a book about playing TTRPG’s with family and TTRPG history that I reviewed in 2021!  After some chatting, I was actually able to play a session with the game’s creators, which was an awesome experience!  The Hero’s Tale was designed for smooth play, creating engaging characters, and easy encounter mechanics – I picked it up after a very quick pre-session review, and had a blast playing with Mark, Jake, and Brendon!
