One of the things I found when I decided to start playing RPGs with my children was that there was not a lot of information out there on appropriate game systems for this player type. To be honest, the few resources that I did find basically said to dumb down Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 or […]Read More Tabletop RPGs for Kids
I need to start this off with a disclaimer: I absolutely love this game. It is easily my families favorite board game to date. We have only owned it for a week or so but have played it every night, usually multiple games per night. I’ve also ordered an expansion pack for it and will […]Read More Here to Slay
I’m a sucker for a svelte, rules-lite RPG. From The Black Hack, to Maze Rats, to Lady Blackbird and even Lasers and Feelings, I absolutely love the freedom a good rules-lite RPG can give to both the players and the GM.

Coming in at 20 pages, this small system comes with Rules, Equipment lists, Spells and Foes to fight, making this invaluable for […]Read More The Black Hack, Baby!!!
I’m a sucker for an open RPG system. Systems like Fate/ Fate Accelerated, GURPS and 2d6 are some of my favorites to run for new gamers because of their ability to run a game in any setting. This helps meet the expectations of the players while also keeping the GM familiar with the system. Well, […]Read More Review of Shatter6 Open Roleplaying
I purchased Kingdom Builder almost 2 years ago now and it has been a hit from the very first day of play. My wife, friends and I have played countless times and have loved every game of it.

So up until this point, I have been writing and designing this blog on a Chromebook, mostly because it was the only functioning computer in the house.
