My rpgKids followup…

April 4, 2014 by

I’ve been working here and there on a follow up to rpgKids, and I’m slowly getting to the finish line… I launched a webpage for the project today, so I thought I’d link it here. There’s not much there but a description of the setting/story of the game. Soon, when I have more to share […]

Working on a new kids’ game

February 11, 2014 by

I’ve been working on a new kids’ game the past few months, and it’s finally starting to take shape. I’m pretty excited about it. As opposed to rpgKids, which was basically a pretty simple ruleset with no story attached, this game will have a story built into it, and not be as combat focused as […]

Gaming with kids

Rpgnow.com had a special event this week revolving around kids and gaming. I figured I should take the time and write a bit about the subject, considering my experience this past year with rpgKids. I don’t want to write a whole essay on the subject (the truth is I’m away on business and don’t have […]

Wow. What a crazy week. So CNN.com featured me on their Geekout blog talking up kids and role playing games.  Pretty cool for all of us rpg bloggers out there, they are noticing us and paying attention to what we have to say.  I have to say that being featured on CNN ranks up pretty […]

rpgKids at Gencon

My ADD sometimes gets the best of me, and this is one of those times… You’d think a guy with a role-playing game for sale would want to do anything possible to promote it at the largest gaming convention… Geez. Anyway, I’d like to see if there’s interest in me running rpgKids at Gencon.  If […]

rpgKids craziness and Adventure Pack update

This past week I saw rpgKids hit outside of the insular D&D community and blogosphere in a big way.  I was contacted by the popular BoingBoing blog to write an article about the game for them, and it led to many people picking up the game to (based on emails I got) rediscover gaming by […]

An rpgKids update

It’s been 5 months to the day since I released rpgKids v1.5 and I just want to thank everyone who purchased it, and took the time to comment on it, send me a note, or review it on their site.  As of today it’s still one of the top 50 selling items on rpgnow.com, it also […]

Play rpgKids and give to St. Jude Children’s Hospital

Hey guys.  I wanted to do something special for the remainder of the year, right through the holidays.  I’m doing this because before I’m a D&D blogger, or anything else for that matter, I’m a dad to two beautiful and healthy kids.  If there’s one thing that scares me in life is my kids being […]

Play an RPG today with your little kids with rpgKids v.1.5

September 14, 2010 by

Some of you may remember rpgKids, a very rules-light rpg I developed to play with my 4 year old daughter.  It was a fairly popular game (based on downloads), and I got quite a few emails and links sent to me about it.  It was even included in the latest volume of the Open Game […]

rpgKids at play

EDIT:  If you are looking for rpgKids, it now has a permanent webpage here. So yesterday I pulled out the minis and tiles for another game with my 4 year old daughter.  One thing immediately stood out:  if you aren’t consistent with the gaming, the rules will be forgotten. In her defense though, this is […]
