Getting Kids into Role-playing
Do you have kids or spend time with any ever? Want to share the joys of role-playing with them but just don’t know how? Look no further than Hero Kids! For kids as young as 4 all the way up to around 10, Hero Kids will offer you a simple and fun game that kids will beg you to play. Not only that, but it is perfect for busy parents as well with easy setup and not a long playtime.
The first thing that makes Hero Kids something I’d recommend over other child-friendly games is the fact that it transitions well into bigger games when the time comes. You love D&D? Great! It’ll get your kido ready by building concepts slowly here.
Another reason is that the game is flexible. You can make things more, or less, complex depending on the needs of your child as they develop. I’ve already mentioned that things are easy to manage parent-side, so this isn’t really any extra work either! Personally, I spend about 10-20 minutes getting a game ready and play only takes an hour at the absolute most.
Need more info still? I encourage you to check out my monthly posts over on Reddit (I use the same Jon Spencer Reviews handle there). I explain in great detail how I took a group of kids of widely varying ages, and zero play experience, and got them hooked on Hero Kids. I also give tips and advice alongside this, which can help with children’s activities, even outside of tabletop gaming.
Hero Kids is very affordable at $5.99 for the base book, but I would go all out and get the everything bundle if this interests you. It is great value, and better yet, if you decide to upgrade beyond PDF, you’ll get a 50% off coupon. Additionally, future content is free for you as well!
This is a great game and I really love it. The benefits of role-playing are really great so I encourage you to give them the gift of Hero Kids. Not only will they love you for it, but you will have fun too! That’s a win-win in my book.
