It's funny ... as I was listening to y'all on your introductory 'cast, I kept thinking, "That's an urban Kentucky dialect." So I wasn't terribly surprised to hear my hometown, Louisville, mentioned as game-town for at least one of y'all.

I started gaming in Louisville at a wonderful mom and pop store (literally mom and pop; long out of business) store called Games Galore way out Frankfort Avenue toward St. Mathhews. We had one or two DMs, and literally 25 players. Crazy, but good times. Louisville had a really strong RPG scene, at least from '86 to '91, when I headed to UK (and finally ended up here in San Francisco).

As far as finding games, I've had great success online with a site called AccessDenied.

I just listened to most of your episode... quite like what y'all are doing.

A great gateway game for kiddos is "The Prince's Kingdom" by Clinton R. Nixon, available at Indie Press Revolution. I've read and heard commentaries on kids as young as 7 having a blast. It frames conflicts in a way that is brilliant for children, allowing for lots of non-violent solutions... as well as violent ones.. but sorta prompts an empathic approach to the problem solving.

I really like the laid back tone among you three. I think you are doing a lot of subtle things really right. Y'all are great about giving each other room to talk. I like the different view point.

Great first show! I'll be tuning in to hear more.

I've never played with kids, since I was a kid. But I started play at around 11 with Choose Your Own Adventure and then Fighting Fantasy books. Steve Jackson then came out with a FF book that required a GM, and that totally blew my mind.

D&D was soon to follow.

I think if I were to play with kids, I might go the same route. I think the style of content of play probably has less impact than the mechanics of the system.

Cheers
