    D&D 5E N00b

    I've read a few of your posts. I do think the advantage/disadvantage mechanism has promise but have not seen it in actual play. Hoping to get the chance in about a month or so. Joe "from Snellville but not a Johnny Champion alt" Blank

    D&D 5E New DM Looking for tips hoping to run starter set with kids 9-12

    A lot of great advice has been given already, so I won't rehash it all. Mostly I would say don't underestimate kids. Many of them will "get" roleplaying more than adults. Call me crazy, but I once asked for similar advice here on ENWorld when my oldest was not yet 6. Gygax responded, and I...

    Kid's Night

    Good on you for exposing kids to the game. I debated whether it would be worth the effort years ago, and asked Gary for advice in one his Q&A threads. His response is in my .sig, and I'm glad I took it.

    Is old school a good way to introduce younger players to D&D?

    The good thing about "old school" for younger players is the idea that the players do not need to know or understand all the rules. In traditional old school play, the players declare what they would like to do, and the referee/DM applies the rules to their actions. My sons are now ages 12, 10...

    Old School Hack

    I had the pleasure of playing this a few months ago. It is perhaps the perfect one-shot game, and I could certainly see using it for an ongoing campaign.

    Gaming Families

    I read several posts before realizing how old this thread is! Funny to see some of the familiar posters. I started gaming in one form or another with my sons when they were about ages 5, 7 and 9, maybe even a little earlier. We played the Temple of Elemental Evil PC game, which was a great...
