D&D Library Talk: Episode Nine: Making Your RPG Family Friendly

Wednesday, September 15, 2021
D&D Library Talk
Virtual
D&D Library Talk is our podcast on the ins and outs of RPG systems, like Dungeons and Dragons! We talk about how to make sure everyone enjoys the game, whether as a player or game master. In Episode Nine we talk about how to design fun and engaging RPG games for tweens and families. We are joined by Children's Librarian, and D&D enthusiast, Kim Baker as we discuss campaign design and system choice, best practices when leading RPGs for tweens, the social and emotional learning benefits of RPGs, and how to set everyone up for success when playing these games.

Age 12 and up. Access archived and future podcasts and resources on our D&D Library Talk webpage.
