We continue Teach Your Kids to Game Week with this favorite Pick by Internet sensation and gaming-with-kids guru, GeekDad. I’ll let him tell the take from here –
“When my kids were younger, I couldn’t wait to introduce them to role-playing games, but the “Age: 12+” on D&D‘s Red Box taunted me like a shadow dragon guarding a tremendous hoard of gold. We ended up getting started with Dungeons & Dragons well before the twelfth birthday rolled around, but we weren’t idle until then. Over the years, I tried a number of RPGs aimed at younger kids. I wrote about some of them here, at GeekDad. While many of them were fun and a very good time, they were nowhere near as good as the recently released Little Wizards from Crafty Games.”
Kids Are Magic
The kids in our lives all dream of visiting other worlds, of being heroes in their own special Tales. Here’s their chance! Little Wizards is a storytelling roleplaying game for inventive and inquisitive kids ages 6-10, developed to introduce them to the magic of creating their own characters and stepping into a whole new world. It’s simple enough to learn in just a few minutes and engaging enough for older kids and adults to play with their little ones. Packed with advice for gaming with youngsters, this is a perfect introduction for everyone.
Originally designed for the French market as Contes Ensorcelés by Antoine Bauza (7 Wonders, Ghost Stories) and published by Le Septième Cercle (Qin, Z-Corps), this English-language edition features updated rules and game content developed by Amanda Valentine (Marvel Heroic Roleplaying, The Dresden Files RPG).
The basic and form-fillable versions of the character sheet are available at the Little Wizards Downloads page.
