S2E12 Gaming with Kids

On this episode of Lair of Secrets, we talk about one of the most rewarding (and occasionally challenging) experiences a geek parent can have: playing role-playing games with your kids.

Main Topic: Gaming with Kids

For this episode’s topic, e have another former Overlord of The Secret Lair, Kris Johnson. He’s a middle aged geek dad like ourselves, former podcaster, and all around great dad. Over the years we’ve occasionally heard stories of his game table and his family’s exploits, and we wanted to bring him on board to talk about gaming with family and bringing up children who game.

  • How did you get started gaming with kids?
  • What is the group like?
  • What worked, what didn’t?
  • Advice for others getting started?
