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.

Book review of Princesses of the Pizza Parlor, a story of tabletop RPGs, friendship, and running games for kids

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!
