Dungeons and Dragons is a game. Games are for kids.
Two simple statements, but they both raise big questions. D&D is a game, sure, but is it a game in the same sense as Candyland or Snakes and Ladders? Games are for kids, but they’re also for adults; is it wise to cross the streams?
Happily, they come with simple answers. Yes, D&D is a game in the same sense as Candyland: both have sets of rules, ways to interact with a fictional environment and ways to play out success and failure. And yes, D&D is open to kids. Kids play chess and go, and neither chess nor go lets you change the rules to make the game easier. D&D encourages it.
D&D is a perfect match for parents, teachers and anyone else with kids to look after. First and foremost, it’s something for them to focus on that isn’t Fortnite or climbing the walls or climbing the walls while playing Fortnite. It’s also a great way to teach teamwork, spend quality time together, and foster creativity.
Luckily with just some basic prep work and a few simple tools, playing D&D with kids can be made much easier. Follow us as we guide you through a game of D&D with your younglings.
