I’ve started teaching Iris (slightly) more grown up games and she crushed me three for three: Pitchcar (no pic), Cube Quest, and Rampage or whatever it’s called now. Ugh/yay!

  1. Our Daughter loves Cube Quest, we don’t have Pitchcar but we do have Roadzters and she likes it, but it’s a much more difficult game.

    Rampage is the one game I picked up at GenCon one year knowing for sure that she would love it. She played it once and had no interest ever playing it again.

  2. Paul Beakley its been a long time since either of my daughters were as young as Iris, so I forget what games we played pre-good reading skills. The number of good games for kids at that age was far, far smaller than it is today, so post-Hi Ho Cherry-O and Snakes and Ladders I think it was probably a lot of gin. Which sounds like we were playing cards in a speakeasy.

    Anyway, I envy you the selection of games you have available to play with Iris, is what I am saying.

  3. Hans Messersmith it’s so awesome, yeah. And she’s on the fast upward slope on reading now! I’m going to help her transition her basic-mode No Thank You, Evil! character sheet to the medium-mode version (more reading = more powerz and that is a powerful incentive).

  4. Oh and she’s insisting I run, I kid you not, Stars Without Number for her. She got an eyeful of the revised edition and the space stuff got her head revved up.

  5. “No Thank You Evil” makes me wish I could travel back in time and hand a copy to me circa 2001 or so, because wow that is such a cool idea.

    I’ll just be satisfied that my younger daughter is contemplating GM’ing her first RPG at University right now using Dungeon World. 🙂

    As an aside, they are older games but we really enjoyed Jambo and Blue Moon City once reading was a thing. Also, Through the Desert, because Knizia and candy camels look like candy.
