I had the awesome opportunity to partner with Michael Low from Luck of Legends on a dual article release! We are releasing our articles on each other’s sites to help share our experiences, provide some tips and tricks for playing with different age ranges, and help you bring tabletop RPGs to your kids.
I found out about The Hero’s Tale while reading Roll Dice, Build Character, a book about playing tabletop RPGs with family and tabletop RPG 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!
These StoryGuider games are from the Mediator Mouse trilogy! These games concentrate on learning about playing nicely with others, making friends, and settling disputes!
As soon as I saw Adorablins, I was excited to try it out and interview the creators. It looks super cute and, it turns out, the original version was played with a 2.5yo in mind, so perfect for introducing to my kid! I had a lot of fun chatting with Tim and Kristin about their experiences, their game, and their advice as both parents and creators!
I’ve been doing guest spots on podcasts and streams and collaborations with other creators in addition to what’s on the TTRPGkids site! Check out here to see where I’ve been talking about TTRPGkids and working with others in the community!
Solar Mech Squad is a solarpunk TTRPG that I made as part of the Caltrop Core game jam! Save the environment using GIANT ROBOTS!
These StoryGuider games are from the Betti the Yeti trilogy! These games concentrate on learning about tuning into our emotions and taking care of ourselves!
Inspirisles is a beautifully illustrated game that utilizes sign language as one of the core spell casting components! Since I saw it, I knew I wanted to try it out with my kid, and I was very excited to see him pick Inspirisles up right away (he even asks for it as the sign magic game now). Inspirisles is a truly teaching tool and game, and I hope you give it a try!
Most people have probably played board games and are familiar with a lot of the mechanics. For people new to tabletop RPGs, this familiar territory can be a great springboard for starting to introduce role-playing elements seen in TTRPGs before taking the dive into a totally new genre of games!
I heard about Trouble at Santa’s Workshop because of a charity event that was going on! The creator was very kindly donating all proceeds from the game during Dec 2021 to a food drive charity for the holidays, and, with it also being an all-ages game, I really wanted to support. Trouble in Santa’s Workshop was a great way to kick off some holiday family fun in our household, and was a nice easy game that got my son VERY excited about helping with holiday prep.
